Quad-Pres

More Hacking. More tests, and finally a new stable version release. I branched and tagged version 0.10.0 only to discover I did not update the file list of the tests directory, so I released version 0.10.1 as well.

It seems Quad-Pres has disappeared from Freshmeat, possibly because vipe was down for a while. (I did not receive an E-mail about it, though). Eventually, I registered a project at BerliOS, and now it has a new homepage. So, now Freshmeat points at it and hopefully it would be safer there.

Version Control Systems

Added a few items and corrected some typos in the version control comparison. Also, I recommended Subversion in a recent discussion in webdesign-l, and someone posted a message that when he tried to install Subversion on Win32, it did not work for him.

To help him and others in the future, I installed Subversion myself on my Windows XP laptop, and documented the process. Et voila: a Subversion Win32 Installation Walkthrough. Share and enjoy!

Translation

I'm taking a break from translating "Homesteading the Noosphere" by translating the Joel on Software "Rub a Dub Dub" article (to Hebrew, of course. Like I know any other language besides that and English well enough.) Here's the site where I'll put intermediate copies of the translation.

Finally, I went over the slides of the GIMP Lecture in preparation for my lecture on Sunday. And on Monday there's a Haifux Welcome to Linux coordination meeting.
