morituri 0.2.3 ‘moved’ released!

It’s two weeks shy of a year since the last morituri release. It’s been a pretty crazy year for me, getting married and moving to New York, and I haven’t had much time throughout the year to do any morituri hacking at all. I miss it, and it was time to do something about it, especially since there’s been quite a bit of activity on github since I migrated the repository to it.

I wanted to get this release out to combine all of the bug fixes since the last release before I tackle one of the number one asked for issues – not ripping the hidden track one audio if it’s digital silence. There are patches floating around that hopefully will be good enough so I can quickly do another release with that feature, and there are a lot of minor issues that should be easy to fix still floating around.

But the best way to get back into the spirit of hacking and to remove that feeling of it’s-been-so-long-since-a-release-so-now-it’s-even-harder-to-do-one is to just Get It Done.

I look forward to my next hacking stretch!

Happy ripping everybody.

mach 1.0.3 ‘moved’ released

It’s been very long since I last posted something. Getting married, moving across the Atlantic, enjoying the city, it’s all taken its time. And the longer you don’t do something, the harder it is to get back into.

So I thought I’d start simple – I updated mach to support Fedora 19 and 20, and started rebuilding some packages.

Get the source, update from my repository, or wait until updates hit the Fedora repository.

Happy packaging!

morituri 0.2.2 “my bad” released

The 0.2.1 release contained a bug causing “rip offset” find to fail. That’s annoying for new users, so I spent some time repenting in brown paper bag hell, and fixed a few other bugs besides. Hence, my bad.

I can understand that you didn’t all mass-flattr the 0.2.2 release – you tried it and you saw the bug! Shame on me.

Well, it’s fixed now, so feel free to pour in your flattr love if you use morituri! Just follow this post to my blog and hit the button.

The 0.2.2 packages are in the Fedora 17-18-19 repositories. Enjoy!

The GNOME pants are still alive?

Wow. I had no idea GNOME still had the pants award. I don’t remember exactly which GUADEC it was, but I never thought that when I originally came up with the pants award for Jeff Waugh it would turn into a longstanding tradition.

Have the pants always been the same pants I bought back then for like 15 euros? Or has someone upgraded them along the way to a better model? Are there any photos throughout the years?

morituri 0.2.1 “married” released

I finally managed to set aside a few hours this weekend to fix some smaller issues in morituri and put out a new release. (For those who don’t know, morituri is an accurate CD ripper for Linux)

Life’s been a little busy lately and my spare time hacking has been suffering. But I’m happy I got a nice stretch of hacking hours in on morituri, and hope to repeat it in the next few weeks to knock out some more complicated issues, like tackling the reports of problems with latest pycdio releases.

The most important change is probably the filtering of non-FAT and other special characters, which I ended up doing a lot like sound-juicer does, because I trust Ross to have looked at this in detail.

In addition, after curiously reading Lionel Dricot‘s posts about Flattr, I decided to get a little more serious about trying Flattr again (I had only flattr’d about 4 things so far due to lack of content). I integrated Flattr in my wordpress install, upgrading it in the process, and installed the chrome extension which should give me many more options to flattr other people’s content – for example, github repos.

So if you like morituri, go to this post on my website and click the Flattr button you see at the bottom of this post or on the morituri homepage!

I don’t expect to get rich off it, but I think it’s a nice way of showing you appreciate someone’s work.
