    All the *mm projects now require C++11. Current versions of g++ require you to use the –std=c++11 option for this, but the next version will probably use C++11 by default. We might have done this sooner if it had been clearer that g++ (and libstdc++) really really supported C++11 fully.
  • Pixman Baking ARMv6, PowerPC 64 Improvements
    Pixman 0.33.2 RC has many new ARMv6 optimizations, bug fixes for PowerPC 64-bit, and various other fixes and enhancements to the MMX code.
  • Obnam 1.13 released (backup software)
    I have just released version 1.13 of Obnam, my backup program. See the website at http://obnam.org for details on what it does. The new version is available from git (see http://git.liw.fi) and as Debian packages from http://code.liw.fi/debian, and uploaded to Debian, and soon in unstable.
