VCS 1.13.3 released

The latest version of VCS is available to download. It's been a good while since the last release, but there aren't a lot of changes this time around, apart from the usual bugfixes there's better handling of errors and unsupported files. The most important bug fixed is obviously the one I already previewed some days […]

VCS 1.13 released

Next release (1.13.1) announcement An updated version of vcs is available to download. Shame on me for the long wait since this has been pretty much completed for months. The biggest change this time is the "blank frame avoidance" feature, with which (mostly) blank frames will not be captured, if possible, this is one of […]

VCS 1.12.3 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.

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 […]

Una web anti UNIX de Microsoft usa UNIX

Microsoft como parte de una de sus campañas de márketing ha creado una web contra el sistema operativo UNIX y su familia. Lo curioso del tema es que el servidor funciona sobre FreeBSD, una variante gratuíta de UNIX y conocida por su alta seguridad (mayor que la de Linux). Para colmo el servidor usado es […]
