  • Multiple posts during the week express satisfaction with various offerings of Jay Sekora's JSTOOLS package [L6 ]
  • Andreas Kupries releases 1.2 of Trf and TrfCrypt, which fold compression, error-correction, encryption, ... into I/O in intelligent ways [L7 ] [L8 ]
  • Martin Schrape <[email protected]> has ported 8.0p1 to VxWorks, and plans to do the same for 8.1 (including threads!) this summer.
