VCS 1.11 released

In this post: Release notes A note for everyone (but specially for porn aficionados) BTS and Documentation Release notes Finally a new version of vcs, and it brings a truckload of changes. So many in fact that it will probably break in new and unexpected ways but so far it has been working quite fine. […]

Refreshed mp3plot's Debian Sid packages

I've just refreshed the Debian Sid packages for mp3plot with the newer dependencies. They're just re-built packages, nothing else changed. The new packages can, as always, be found at mp3plot's site. Also, I missed this one but FreeBSD's included version got up-to-date a mere ten days after the last release.

Documentation wiki is live

I've finally open access to the documentation wiki for vcs (and also mp3plot and nautilus-follow-symlink). It's far from complete, with a lot of stuff to add, but I'm moving there all documentation progressively so there's the place to look for help. I started using MediaWiki but later scaled back to DokuWiki.

mp3plot 0.6.0 released

mp3plot 0.6.0 is out. It started as a bugfix release for a nasty bug when dealing with free-format or broken files (reported by Tricky Trix, thanks pal 🙂 ) and eventually led me to (finally) implement support for "MP1" (MPEG-1 Layer I), "MP2" (MPEG-1 Layer II) and all three layers of MPEG-2. Such files can […]

nautilus-folow-symlink 1.1 released

There's a refreshed version of nautilus-follow-symlink. Nothing new (after all there's little to be added), but I'm finally letting GNOME set the icon instead of force-feeding it, so it should, hopefully, display an icon matching the user-chosen theme. And it should also be friendlier to build.

mp3plot 0.5.1 released

mp3plot 0.5.1 is out, I've finally got a graphical output I sort of like and fixed some bugs, see the changelog for details. The older colourscheme is still available as an option (–old-colorscheme)

VCS 1.0.100a released

I've published a snapshot of VCS in the state I commented in the last post, i.e. it works on FreeBSD and possibly more OSes than before, but output is less refined there. But since I've been a bit sidetracked I've opted to publish now and update later on 😛

VCS working on FreeBSD

As I wrote on the last update, I've been working on making vcs work on FreeBSD (and hopefully other non-GNU systems), there were quite a few problems that made it unusable outside GNU variants, but it's already working. Sort of: There's still some wrong details: Like instead of or instead of But that's definitely better […]

VCS Beyond Linux

Before the next release I'd like to make VCS work better in other OSes beyond Linux. Linux is my (current at least) OS of choice and the one I'm not familiar with so it's also obviously the OS in which I develop and test VCS. Thanks to virtualisation gaining a lot of momentum I'm now […]

VCS 1.0.99 released

New version released, finally implementing DVD support (both ISO and DVD devices should work). Also JPEG 2000 output, a more Polaroid™-like polaroid mode 😉 (the older one has been renamed to photos); the timestamp is now reduced for smaller captures plus the usual batch of fixes/tweaks. DVDs Capturing from DVDs is a bit tricky, the […]
