Last month version 7.20.4 of BRLCAD was released with lots of improvements. You can check the log here for details.
This weekend I finally had some time to update my SlackBuild script and submit the update to SlackBuilds.org. While the script is waiting for approval, you can download pre-built packages from my site.
How this all started
About a year and a half ago I wrote a patch to get mysqlcc (”MySQL Control Center”) to build with newer versions of mysql and the gcc compiler. This post can be found here and I’ve received several replies on this blog and through e-mail since.
After mysql 5.5 was released, I received [...]
Today LibreOffice 3.4.3 was released. Updating my SlackBuild script is now extremely simple, so the newest packages can already be downloaded from my site while the SlackBuild is waiting in the pending queue.
I also built the usual language packs and they are being uploaded as well and should be available later tonight.
A few days ago ntop 4.1.0 was released so it was time to update my SlackBuild script again
This release is focused on stability and speed, solving some of the problems the 4.0.x series had.
Some “older” protocols have been removed (but may come back in rewritten form in future versions), making space for newer [...]
Updating FreeCAD was long over due – the last package I built was for 0.9.2646 and they’re currently in the 0.11 series. But it is not a simple package to build – it requires some time and patience to get it all right…
FreeCAD is based on OpenCASCADE, which has been updated a few [...]
Freeciv 2.2.7 was released recently and I updated my SlackBuild script for it.
The Freeciv 2.2.x series of releases are mainly bug fixes, while the development of new features continues in the upcoming 2.3.x branch – which is still in beta.
While the script is pending approval on SlackBuilds.org, you can get pre-built packages from my site.
With all the updates to packages, I forgot completely to mention QComicBook. I updated my SlackBuild script for version 0.8.1, which now also supports pdf files.
As always, the pre-built packages can be downloaded from my site.
Today (or yesterday, depending on your timezone) LibreOffice 3.4.2 was released.
This is the first release from the 3.4 series that is officially declared stable enough for enterprise use. So now we can all retire our 3.3.x installations and start using 3.4.2.
I admit that I’ve been using the 3.4 versions since 3.4.0, but I’m not [...]
Another simple update… Or not?
This weekend I finally updated my LG X130 netbook to Slackware 13.37. This is one of my “stable” machines that I use all the time for day-to-day tasks, so I do not run -current on it, as I depend on it too much. Slackware-current is very interesting for research and testing [...]
The official collection of Lego parts from LDraw was updated this week.
This collection of “virtual” pieces is used by programs as LDView, ldglite and l3p.
The leocad program uses its own “pieces” library, but is usually updated right after the LDraw parts library.
I updated the scripts for both packages and submitted the results to SlackBuilds.org, where [...]
