So at last, after a rather sleepless weekend, libmng 0.9.2 finds it way to the net. I should thank rillian for helping out and being patient with my gross ignorance of certain things. This is my first open-source project and first steps on a lot of new stuff: platforms, languages, utilities, portability and such.

I think the recent thread on autoconf/automake/libtool expresses much of what I experienced over the weekend. It's frustrating and doesn't make a very professional appearence. Why would any tool need to copy a load of pre-installed files into ones source-directory to make it work? That seems rather dumb. On the other hand I like the simplicity. But I also decided to leave all (well... all 3 of them) makefiles in place, just in case.

I really need to catch-up on some z-time now.

libmng 0.9.1 released.

I have released libmng 0.9.1. the second beta and likely one of the last, since the number of bug-reports against 0.9.0 was stunningly low. It adds improved support for suspension-mode reading, a new usage guide in both plain ASCII and man-page format, and further implements a few of the HLAPI functions regarding separate read() and display() and in that scenario also supports freeze(), resume() and reset().

Please enjoy. http://www.libmng.com
