Web packaging technology is torture.
The last week, I've been fighting webpack, parcel, #rollup, babel and bili, just because vue stopped supporting #browserify and I had to figure what to use as a replacement in #beast.
^^^ If that sentence sounds like it has too many web tech buzzwords, that's *exactly* the problem.
And it's only a fraction of packages I had to deal with...
Most packages have documentation, but only provide tiny puzzles of a much bigger picture that is revealed nowhere...
That's still unfinished though, why do I always need bleeding edge features?
Time for bed I guess, maybe the edge looks less bleeding tomorrow... ;-)
Last Tuesday #Beast 0.15.0 was released.
This is most probably the last release that supports the #Gtk+ Beast UI. We have most of the bits and pieces together to move towards the new EBeast UI and a new synthesis core in the upcoming months and will get rid of a lot of legacy code along the way...
Beast version 0.15.0 is released.
#Beast is an LGPLv2+ music synthesizer and composer (#DAW), for #Linux.
This release supports Jack as PCM driver and the experimental Ebeast frontened got many style updates, play position pointers and supports the Space key.
Firefox becomes unresponsive for several seconds, burning CPU. Yesterday I decided to watch FF in gdb and saw that it's accessing thousands of font files , each causing a "SIGSYS, Bad system call".
Can anyone guess why FF gets SIGSYS, failing to access a world-readable file? Bug report: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1566053
Beast version 0.14.0 is released.
The full release announcement is out now:
Except for two things that aren't obvious:
a) You need to figure to create the default ticket structures, as described here (github closed issue search is your friend): https://github.com/docker-library/redmine/issues/111#issuecomment-379728491
b) To reduce fragmentation, btrfs users might want to re-create /usr/src/redmine/sqlite/redmine.db to add chattr +C
Tentative NEWS for the upcoming Beast release:
Summer definitely has arrived in Hamburg, has been a hot day here.
I inflated the wading pool for the kids, which was well received. After all we had 30°C, sweating hot!
Then I read "India heatwave temperatures pass 50 Celsius", that really puts things in perspective...
