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
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
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
Using the 'update-copyright' script from gnulib:
git ls-files | UPDATE_COPYRIGHT_HOLDER='all contributors' \
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
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
I'm still normal, and still trolling, but 80x24.org will be epic :)
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.
We shall reserve dtas-mpris until it's actually implemented.
