Another year, another alpha release for Django and … another “production” mirror for me and anybody else interested. Django has just released the first alpha for Django-1.8. As usual, I create the mirror as soon as the corresponding branch is opened (stable/1.8.x),¬†but this is still alpha stuff for you to test, not anything stable you […]

It’s been a long time since the last maintenance release, and there are several fixes worth releasing. There are also few enhancements, including patches from an external contributor. Thanks Rudy ūüôā Most people are using a clone and just need to update, but for the others, I’ve released¬†tarballs as well. Homepage Announcement Download

Time flies, and I haven’t made any release of Colibri for a long time, despite it being used in production and bug being fixed as they are found. So here it is. No shiny new feature there, it’s mostly about bug fixing, code cleaning and updating the code. More importantly: Colibri now requires Django 1.6, […]

The current situation is rather messy with respect to the AMD r600 GPU backend : it has been merged on llvm, but not yet released. The problem is that, on gentoo, the USE flag “r600-llvm-compiler” requires this backend. As a result, it was not possible since ~christmas to compile mesa-9999 with it. The backend is […]

Just as lot of people here and elsewhere keep on denying KDE QA major problem, the 4.10 release is yet another proof of how bad the situation is. KDE cares so much that they already closed the bug¬†with a oh-so-easy “not our fault”. Which is probably true, but still I consider that this shows a […]
