A bunch of minor fixes and cleanups accumulating for the past
two years since the last release. It's tough to remember to
make releases when I'm always running the latest version from
Most notably, "io_splice" is no longer used for dtas-linux
users since "sleepy_penguin" includes all the functionality
we use. This is to reduce memory overhead from extra DSOs(*)
There's also some deprecation warning fixes for the
still-undocumented "dtas-mlib" command.
12 changes since v0.15.0 (2017-04-07):
pipeline: new module for running process pipelines
console: ensure time calculations are done in UTC
Rakefile: update path for uploads
player: support guessing encodings for comments
get rid of Windows-31J regexps
mlib: compatibility with Sequel 5.x
mlib: remove redundant tag massaging and encoding
mlib: use flock to get around SQLite busy errors
mlib: ignore files with nil times
dtas/watchable: check SystemCallError
mlib: fix unused variable warning
use sleepy_penguin 3.5+ for splice and tee support
HTTPS allows some level of security(*) and we've actually
supported it on 80x24.org for many months, now. So, point new
readers to it.
Moving away from hostname-based homepages will allow us to save
on subjectAltName space (and bandwith) when negotiating an HTTPS
connection. We'll also have an .onion mirror for Tor users,
soon, too; in case we can't afford to pay ICANN in the future.
(assuming TLS libraries don't have any more Heartblead-level
bugs in them, CAs aren't compromised, MITM HTTPS stripping
proxies don't get in your way, and your certificate bundle isn't
In case the news.public-inbox.org server goes down,
gmane is also available and is fed directly by the nongnu.org
Using the 'update-copyright' script from gnulib:
git ls-files | UPDATE_COPYRIGHT_HOLDER='all contributors' \
English grammar is not easy :x
While we're at it, dtas-archive.txt is expanded to document things
While we're in the area, make a wording change from "GPLv3 or later"
to "GPL-3.0+", as the latter is favored by SPDX.org
Notable additions for dtas-player music listeners.
dtas-ctl queue cat - display the internal queue
dtas-tl shuffle [true|false] - toggle tracklist shuffle
dtas-tl edit - open tracklist in an editor
see dtas-tl(1) manpage for more details on this:
The player tracklist now uses sequential track IDs instead of Ruby
object IDs, so it should be easier to use existing commands such as
"dtas-tl goto" and "dtas-tl remove"
For people using dtas-player for applying real-time effects to
splitfx YAML files, dtas-player can now watch for changes in scripts
specified in the "command" field of the splitfx YAML file.
Previously, dtas-player could only read the splitfx YAML file
itself. This requires GNU/Linux and the sleepy_penguin RubyGem
dtas-splitfx also learned some switches to allow easier
interoperability with other processing tools:
-p/--sox-pipe - identical to the sox(1) option
-t/--trim - only expose part of the track, useful when
combined with the above -p switch
See http://dtas.80x24.org/dtas-splitfx.txt for more details.
There's also some work-in-progress stuff that's not well documented
at the moment. As with anything pre-1.0, expect the possibility
of incompatible changes.
Since I'm not good at designing protocols, I've also started working
on mpd compatibility layer to allow using the normal music playback
stuff with more clients (some of the clients I actually like, unlike
the seemingly GUI-only landscape of MPRIS :P).
Of course, dtas-player itself has most the capabilities of a
Unix shell; and those capabilities will certainly not be available
to mpd or MPRIS clients.

The Atom feed has existed for a while, but the NNTP server

to firstname.lastname@example.org if you notice bugs)
The documentation part is managed by the new
Documentation/update-copyright script. For the future, the rest may
be managed by the update-copyright tool in gnulib

The best is yet to come!
I'm still normal, and still trolling, but 80x24.org will be epic :)
Readying up for a new release.
Users need to be able to communicate with us.
While we're at it, remove a repeated paragraph. It was a copy+paste
error of the paragraph above it.
dtas-linux.gemspec: likewise for copyright.
All files we distribute in the tarball need to have a
copyright/license specified for Savannah.
We don't need the example state file anymore.
We may still implement gst support, but avconv/ffmpeg probably
cover everything gst covers already (and I'm more familiar with
them than gst).
We have a website, really!
Rename COPYRIGHT -> COPYING, as that seems to be the more common
name for the GPLv3 license file. Kill all rdoc, since I don't
agree with HTML documentation and we do not expose any Ruby APIs.
We should be compatible with "gem-man", as well as allowing
installation to prefix ($HOME by default) via:
make -C Documentation install-man
I haven't figured out what to do with this, yet, since I have yet
to find and ASCII-art capable grapher in Ruby. This was intended
to become dtas-ps, but maybe that'll be something else...
dtas-xdelay is shorter and easier-to-type. The "play" in the name
is also not entirely accurate, as it is capable of using plain
