New look and feel

03.06.2007 by tg@

Some of you might have noticed the new look & feel creeping onto a few of these pages. Well, after LinuxTag (it was a success, but not like they say in their press announcements, I'm rather laughing at these) and FreeX, whose latest issue has an interesting article about MirOS BSD, and with mksh(1) getting more and more popular, I decided to skip on sleep and fun today and continue hacking on what I had already done for the website. Mostly content today. The MirBSD Korn Shell page got completely rewritten. If you find something, tell me. The theme will probably stay similar like the current one, not like Benny's, but the index on the left will look totally different in some days. I'm only migrating (very) few of the old content. At the moment, “main”, “news”, “mksh” and “wlog-9” are converted, and the old CMS has been hacked for transparent migration to the new CMS (“mws”) using HTTP 301 redirects. Same goes for manual pages (/manN/ -> /cman/manN/) to save space on search engines' hard disc drives. Finally, news and wlog now have permalinks (beta).

UPDATE (02.10.2007): Manpages now have better md redirects, and you can use various syntaxes, including /man/foo.1 or /man{i386,sparc}/bar.8

惣流・アスカ・ラングレー (well, just call him Soryu) and NetBSD®'s Stefan Schumacher have taken photographs of the MirOS team (the Duo Benny and me, Przemysław who run the booth as a mere user, and Much, whose new notebook got freshly set up, but who already knows how to like MirOS with evilwm); I'll put them up here once I get access to all of them.

Because we ran out of CDs, we put the ISO 9660 image on the BitTorrent tracker; please only redistribute it on CDs, DVDs or USB Sticks in order to comply with the licence of the Opera© browser included. You can, of course, also simply do a netinstall.

Update: the pictures are here!

The last picture was made by Stefan Schumacher, thanks!

We are present in a joint booth with AllBSD.de on Linuxtag 2007 in Berlin, Germany. The booth is located right at the entrance. Live CDs are out, alas.

mksh R29f released

26.05.2007

mksh R29f is a bugfix release. It fixes some horizontal scrolling bugs discovered by David Ramsey. Thanks a lot!

The BitTorrent Tracker offers a Live and Install CD ISO image of the current development branch for download. This snapshot contains security fixes for at least OpenSSL, OpenSSH, httpd, the kernel, as well as bugfixes for ftp, lynx, and many others.

mksh R28 released

01.09.2006

The MirBSD Korn Shell R28 has been released. An upgrade is highly recommended.

MirPorts heads-up

25.07.2006

Due to the introduction of a new ld wrapper, you will have to re-do "make setup" (or a similar command line) after updating the infrastructure from CVS.

New web server

05.07.2006

We changed our web server. The former mirsolutions server is no longer. gecko2 hosts the box behind www.mirbsd.org now. waldi's Zope is still operational and helps a lot.

MirOS #9 released

01.04.2006

MirOS #9 is available via our BitTorrent tracker. There is also an HTTP(S) download/netinstall option.

Please read the errata.

In case you have acquired a MirOS CD-ROM "FOSDEM 2006" edition please verify the checksums of the data on the CD. Some of the CDs we distributed at FOSDEM were burned from a bad ISO.
