Changing GNUstep directory in new windowmaker-crm-git package

Today I have released a new snapshot release of the windowmaker-crm-git package. There are some bugfixes and new features in this release, but the most important change is the GNUstep directory. I have changed this to /usr/lib/GNUstep. It was requested as a bug report here and it’s now equal to Debian’s GNUstep directory location.

That means, you have to change the directory for the WPrefs.App which has now the new location. All other things should be run without problems. If you have older GNUstep applications, you have to recompile them with the new location.

Mono 2.6 hit the repo yesterday

Yesterday I released Mono 2.6 and Monodevelop 2.2 for Arch Linux. I think we are the first distribution (ok, the SuSE/Novell guys are the first one, but that isn’t really a surprise. As you all know mono is sponsored by Novell) which ships the new mono release. To give you more possibilities with the framework, I have activate the new C# 4.0 Mono implementation in the package. As the release notes say:

If Mono 2.6 is configured with the preview mode, you will also get early access to Mono’s C# 4.0 implementation. This implementation is now available as part of the dmcs command. C# 4.0 named arguments and optional parameters have been fully implemented.

The next highlight of the release is the more complete 3.5 API coverage and it includes Microsoft’s open sourced ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET AJAX and Microsoft’s Dynamic Language Runtime. If you want more information about the changes look at the linked release notes above or at this post from Miguel.

Report any packaging bugs to our bugtracker and if you find a bug in mono itself, don’t hesitate to fill a bug report at mono’s bugtracker.

Music, music and music…

Again, I’m writing about some music I have found on Jamendo. In my first post about music I have recommended Brad Sucks‘ album “I Don’t Know What I’m Doing“, now I’m recommending his other album. It’s not the newest, it was already released one year ago. Nevertheless it’s great! Listen to it:

Another great artist I have found is “Professor Kliq“. He has two great albums, released this autumn. Both are great and I really enjoy it to listen to him:

If you like more some slower and acoustic music, you can listen to Jamie Rumley. She has one album (“renovations” released July, 2009) which is very good.

Two weeks ago she released her next single (Fade Away (Acoustic Single)), a very slow acoustic single. Listen to it:

I think this is enough music for some relaxing hours. Have fun while listening…
