Hurried snapshot and known issues

As already mentioned I planned creating a new snapshot. Well, it will be out shortly, albeit in a hurried manner and not with everything I had planned for it, and with lagging sparc (as if that were new, though…). A hurried mksh release will there be as well. The reason for this is the top #1 known issue:

  • Debian OpenSSL now excludes TLS < 1.2 from communication
    ⇒ there will be some followup release with LibreSSL, I think
  • There’s still no port for libGLU and xlock
  • We didn’t import lzlib into base yet, nor recent fixes to pax(1) from OpenBSD necessary
  • The new Unicode property code is not written yet (although I fixed the data shipped so it matches, at least)
  • I didn’t test g++ from ports on sparc yet, we’ll see how that goes

That being said, you’ll be able to work with what I’ve got, like in olden times when MirBSD was defined as “the contents of my /usr/src and /usr/ports” and be assured that, besides working on things like MuseScore in the meantime, I’m on it.

An unrelated minor update to another recent post; apparently I managed to make the GitHub Legal people aware enough of the problems that they are working on fixing their ToS; I admit there’s been an update since August 1ˢᵗ/2ⁿᵈ which I haven’t yet gotten around to reading at all.

wtf rocks; Eugen is working on an iOS äpp and already has a beta version which just needs bugfixing.
