Excellent review of Mandriva, Nice New Site Design, But...

Just a tiny little request if I may... Smile

Can visited links be distinguished using other colour/s? It's my one and only way to know if I revisit pages unnecessarily. Thanks for your consideration.

re: But...

thanks for saying about the review. Smile

Hopefully the new theme is a bit faster. I think the other one was a bit heavy cuz it had to render and send a bunch of invisible gifs to simulate those rounded corners. I'm trying to wget the google analytics code and source locally to see if that helps any.

I think I have the visited links showing darker, but the main story titles don't change in konqueror - I don't know why. Konqueror users will have to glance down at the 'Read more' link.

Back to the old theme?

I see the older theme is back. Either way, that's cool.

re: old theme

yeah, I couldn't get that other one just the way I wanted and it didn't seem any faster anyway. So, back to the same ole same.

Right move, IMHO

In my blogs/CMSs, I haven't changed the style for years. Visual identity, preserved through consistency, is very important. The only thing that bothers me (just very slightly) is that I sometimes have to squint in order to tell apart visited from unvisited URLs. The colours are very similar.

EDIT/PS: oops. Looking at the thread again, I repeated myself.

re: links

well, the visited links were just almost black as they were, so I lightened the links to where they should be several shades lighter than the visited. Hopefully that will help.

I've noticed. It's

I've noticed. It's fantastic, thanks!

Games: Oxygen Not Included, Proton, GDScript

  • The first DLC for Oxygen Not Included sounds huge, free update soon too

    Klei Entertainment have been busy working behind the scenes on the next free update and first expansion for Oxygen Not Included and they've detailed what's coming. First, the free update coming within the next few days should fix plenty of issues, including one involving infinite digging which sounds annoying. More exciting is the DLC though, it's sounding like it's going to be massive!

  • VKD3D-Proton is the new official Direct3D 12 to Vulkan layer for Proton

    VKD3D was originally a project created directly by the Wine team, the compatibility layer that Proton is built upon. However, the original founder passed away and it seems Valve-funded developers are taking the torch to push it much further. It's actually been a thing for a while but today they adjusted the name of their project as VKD3D-Proton, to give it some official status plus preventing any naming conflicts elsewhere and just be clear about their goals. They're going for supporting the "full" Direct3D 12 API on top of Vulkan, with an aim of both performance and compatibility using modern Vulkan extensions and features, so this comes at the expense of compatibility with older drivers and GPUs. They're also not looking to keep backwards compatibility with the original vkd3d.

  • GDScript progress report: Type checking is back

    After completing the new tokenizer and parser as mentioned in the previous reports, I started working on the code analyzer, which is responsible for type checking and also for used for other features like warnings and some optimizations. This was done before as a second pass inside the parser but it was now moved to another class to make it clear that it doesn't happen at the same pass thus avoiding issues with functions being called out of order (which happened by a few contributions that missed this detail).
