binpatch is a framework for creating binary patches for OpenBSD on all platforms in a semi-automatic way. It can automatically download the source patches published on, apply them, build them, and package the result into binary patches.

Binary patches is a convenient way to keep your servers up to date with security and reliability patches. Unlike the traditional method of patching the source tree, applying binary patches doesn't need extra disk space to hold the whole source tree, compilers or a powerful enough CPU to build the programs patched in a reasonable period of time.

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
