2019-01-02dtas 0.16.0 v0.16.0
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 git :x 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://udrepper.livejournal.com/8790.html
2019-01-02use sleepy_penguin 3.5+ for splice and tee support
Eliminate loading of the io_splice RubyGem to reduce memory overhead. Extra DSOs are wasteful and io_splice is being phased oiut for sleepy_penguin, which encapsulates more Linux-specific functionality anyways. cf. https://udrepper.livejournal.com/8790.html
2016-12-27http -> https, and relocate homepage to https://80x24.org/dtas/
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 compromised).
2016-01-02copyright updates for 2016
Using the 'update-copyright' script from gnulib[1]: git ls-files | UPDATE_COPYRIGHT_HOLDER='all contributors' \ UPDATE_COPYRIGHT_USE_INTERVALS=2 \ xargs /path/to/gnulib/build-aux/update-copyright [1] git://git.savannah.gnu.org/gnulib.git
2015-12-25enable "frozen_string_literal: true"
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
2015-01-19update copyright years and links to mailing list archives
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
2014-06-06update copyrights and email address for 2014
I'm still normal, and still trolling, but 80x24.org will be epic :)
2013-08-29README: add explicit copyright for this file
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.
2013-08-25packaging for dtas-linux and dtas-mpris meta-packages
We shall reserve dtas-mpris until it's actually implemented.
