Hi all! For the first time since I started writing these in 2010 missed a couple. Health issues knocked me out of commission but finally all sorted out. Here’s the funner stuff I was up to in August through October.
Done! Er… well, done-ish.
Finished rewriting the last of Nyx’s legacy codebase (menu and controller modules). For users this means we now have the tested, python 3.x compatible codebase that will be Nyx 2.0.0.
So why no release? Couple reasons…
- Stability. Slick as the new codebase is it introduced regressions causing non-deterministic terminal glitches. Unfortunately these are gonna be a real pita to track down…
- New website. This is actually pretty far along. Content is there, work left is mostly styling. My web-dev fu isn’t too strong so this may take a while.
As some of you may have noticed Stem hasn’t received a release in over a year. This isn’t due to idleness. In fact, Stem has enough changes to pack several releases.
Rather, I’ve kept delaying Stem’s 1.5.0 release over and over to coincide with Nyx’s. ‘Just one more month!’ I told myself. Ooooh, such cute optimism.
So Stem will get its release. Probably this week.
Few other noteworthy things…
- Tor dev meeting. Thanks Jon for making it a success!
- Finished running this year’s GSoC. Program went great, though little sad I wasn’t up for the mentor summit.
- Stem can now download microdescriptor consensuses.
- Helped Roger investigate relays failing to serve current consensus data.
- Moved DocTor from Tonga to Bifroest among other monitoring updates.
- Neat non-tor stuff. Dota Internationals, Midsummer Renaissance Festival, and vacation up to Bellingham for the Sparks Museum and Boeing Factory Tour.
