Released version 0.3.5 of sn today.


I've been maintaining the software I compile myself in their own directories under /usr/local for a few years, but the symlinking to bin, man, lib etcetera got quite tedious. Someone suggested using GNU Stow, and I really like it. You just put the software in /usr/local/stow/foobar and run stow foobar. It's the little things that count, as they say, and the minutes saved by using stow and not having to code my own script are going to add up...

Finally found time to release a new version of sn. Check it out if you need a news server...

Well, I became the new maintainer for sn last weekend, and did my first bug fix release today.

sn is a great little news server, very easy to set up and use. (At least compared to INN. :) )

Grabbed Ogg Vorbis from CVS last night and encoded a few songs. Great stuff... Imminent death of mp3 predicted. :)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
