Quadrennial update… :-P

…well, not exactly four years, more like three and a half. Anyway…

A lot of things have changed around here since the last time I updated this blog. In no particular order:

  • No more Ubuntu packages. I lost interest because I don’t use it anymore, nor do I install it on family/friends’ computers. The PPA and old repository are still out there though, in case some people still use them (after all these years I don’t think so, but…).
  • On the other hand, I didn’t stop using Debian (yet ?) and I’ve been very active about it these last months. I created a new repository, and I finally stepped up to officially maintain a couple of packages. Also, I try to report bugs more often. I think this is important, since Debian is upstream to a lot of distributions now, so fixing bugs in it is beneficial to a lot of people throughout various communities.
  • On this new repository, you can find some packages I created for my own usage, like my firewall script; some meta-packages to easily install stuff; some backports that didn’t make it (yet) to the official archives, like the latest fprint for wheezy (because the old one doesn’t support the ThinkPad X200’s fingerprint reader) or plank for wheezy and jessie (because the official packages are still in experimental); and a couple of other things. I’ll try to update my blog more often when I release new packages on this repository.
  • New theme and slightly modified layout for the blog.

That’s all !
