Wombat demo sites back up

It's aliiiiiiive! Thanks to Thomas Ingham, a fellow Wombat developer, http://wombat.worldforge.org/ has a new home, ending a couple of months of downtime while I was looking for new hosting. Tom's box has enough power to allow running two instances of Wombat. Following the next release, the Wombat demo site will be running the latest released version of Wombat, while the Wombat development site will be running the tip of the development tree, on an example media repository. We're currently dealing with the teething pains of rolling out Wombat on a distro that is different from the one I develop on, but everything should be running fine in a couple of days. Thanks again to Tom and his sysop Josh for giving two cute little Wombat web-apps a new home.

Guten Morgen net

After a couple of days of grinding through the code, the "net" tool from the Samba suite is finally ready to speak languages other than English. A bit over 1700 messages are now waiting for translators. Note to self: Next time I work on i18n, I want combat pay.

Huston, we have a login

After some initial issues, I have just joined my first XP box to Samba4 running on snoopy, my ARM-based system-on-a-chip home server. So now I have a spiffy Active Directory setup running on a system that makes no noise, barely heats up, and that peaks at 2W power usage. If that's not green IT, I don't know what is.

The WOMBAT team is happy to announce the release of 0.4.5 WOMBAT 0.4.5 is mostly a bugfix release. Several backend and usability issues have been resolved. Features include
  • Tag cloud now really is a "cloud", not just a list of tags

  • Tag-based browsing now filters on multiple tags if desired
As always, check out the WOMBAT live demo.
