There was even an interim-CRAN-only release 0.6.300.2.2 with a refinement for tests of imcompleye LAPACK libraries---which we encounter whenver R is build with its own (partial) copy of LAPACK as on Windows, and on bigger computers whenver this was chosen over the default of system LAPACK.

  • guam: an IMAP session filter/proxy

    These days, the bulk of my work at Kolab Systems does not involve writing code. I have been spending quite a bit of time on the business side of things (and we have some genuinely exciting things coming in 2016), customer and partner interactions, as well as on higher-level technical design and consideration. So I get to roll around Roundcube Next, Kube (an Akonadi2-based client for desktop and mobile ... but more on that another time), Kolab server hardware pre-installs .. and that's all good and fun. Still, I do manage to write a bit of code most weeks, and one of the projects I've been working on lately is an IMAP filter/proxy called Guam.

  • eimap: because what the world needs is another IMAP client

    Erlang is a very nice fit for many of the requirements various components in Kolab have ... perhaps one of these days I'll write something more in detail about why that is. For now, suffice it to say that we've started using Erlang for some of the new server-side components in Kolab.

  • It Will Soon Be Easier To Run The Latest Wine On Popular Linux Distributions

    With the Wine crew shipping new unstable releases every two weeks, the Wine packages that end up in Linux distributions tend to be out of date for fetching the bleeding edge support for running Windows programs on Linux. As a result, Wine developers are stepping up their game in providing packages for popular Linux distributions.

  • Wine Developers Are Preparing Packages for Debian, Fedora, and Other Distros

    The Wine developers are now working to provide more up-to-date packages specific to some of the major distributions out there, which should make it easier for users to get their hands on bleeding-edge stuff.
