"CRUX 3.5 Released!"

  • [ANN] CRUX 3.5 Released!
    Greetings!
    
    The CRUX team is happy to announce the release of CRUX 3.5!
    
    Notable changes include glibc 2.28, gcc 8.3.0 and binutils 2.32.
    
    CRUX 3.5 now also ships with PAM. We've made it as transparent
    as possible and it will be a good stepping stone for users wanting
    2-factor authentication and other fun stuff.
    Breaking changes include the move of dbus configuration from
    /usr/etc to /etc, so back up your configs before updating!
    Another potential headache may be various projects' move from
    autotools to newer build systems. glib may cause some problems here
    and dependent ports will need to be rebuilt.

  • CRUX 3.5 Released, which comes with a multilib toolchain

    Matt Housh has proudly announced the new release of CRUX 3.5 on 11 June, 2019.

    CRUX 3.5 comes with a multilib toolchain which includes glibc 2.28, gcc 8.3.0, binutils 2.32, Linux 4.19.48, Xorg 7.7 and xorg-server 1.20.5

    Linux-PAM has been added to the core ports of CRUX 3.5 and important packages like shadow and sudo depend on it now, but normally the user should not even notice the new dependency.

    Linux-PAM will be a good stepping stone for users wanting 2-factor authentication and other fun stuff.

    Configuration of dbus has been moved from /usr/etc to /etc. This is a intrusive change because other ports like wicd, networkmanager and others are affected.

    Another potential headache may be various projects’ move from autotools to newer build systems. glib may cause some problems here and dependent ports will need to be rebuilt.

Dev branch moving towards Qt 6

As you know, Qt 5.14 will be branched pretty soon. After that I would expect that most new development work would start to be aimed towards Qt 6. As it looks right now, 5.15 will be a smaller release where we polish what we have in 5.14, and prepare some things for Qt 6. To reflect that and help us all understand that the development focus is now towards Qt 6, I would like to propose that dev becomes the Qt 6 branch after we branched away 5.14 (and we merge wip/qt6 back into dev). We can then either create a 5.15 branch at the same time, or slightly later, once 5.14 has stabilised a bit more (e.g. after the beta or RC).

Tilda: A Great Dropdown Terminal

If you need a full sized, full featured persistent terminal that appears and hides at a single keystroke, Tilda is your friend. Like most Free Software, it has too little documentation, and some conflicting documentation out on the web. That's OK, with this document make Tilda do a heck of a lot of what it was designed to do. This document didn't cover multiple Tilda instance or transparency, but I'm sure both will be easy for you to achieve with a little web search and experimentation. Read more
