I’m back from vacation – World Boardgaming Championships, where this year I earned laurels in Ticket To Ride and Terra Mystica..
Catching up on some releases I needed to do:
* Open Adventure 1.3: Only minor bugfixes in this one, it’s pretty stable now. We gave 100% coverage in the test suite now, an achievement I’ll probably write about in a future post.
* ascii 1.18: By popular demand, this can now generate a 4×16 as well as 16×4 table, This is especially useful in conjuction with the new -b option to display binary code points.
* Things Every Hacker Once Knew: With new sections on the slow birth of distributed development and the forgotten history of early bitmap displays.
