Already 2 articles in May ! Well, it reflects more the activities done in April in fact. Before leaving for a marvelous one week trip in Florence with the family where we passed most of our time visiting museums, churches and palazzi, I published that required update to 188.8.131.52 which had an annoying issue with LVM. Hopefully this time LVM and especially LVM exclusion is working better.
I try to just fix problems that are reported in this branch, to keep stability as promised. This is really our LTS version.
In parallel, I have modified a lot the code in the current 2.2.10 SVN branch. In order to reflect the non-compatibility and solve the numbering issues, it will in fact be named 3.0.0 when out.
I know i’ve promised since a long time this new 3.0.0 version. But times are coming when I’ll be able to publish it. Mindi is already in good shape, with a major difference: no special busybox is needed anymore, since it is using the native distribution binaries now. Will also allow hopefully an easier Fedora integration.
Changes are numerous:
svn diff svn+ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org/mondo/svn/mondorescue/branches/2.2.9 svn+ssh://email@example.com/mondo/svn/mondorescue/branches/2.2.10 | wc -l
Among those a lot of low level modifications on memory management.
After that will be on track, I’ll change again for a perl re-write, which is as well slowly maturing but now more than required. And I have most of the bricks I need to work on it I think.
Hope to meet with some of you there, and also next week in Valencia in Spain for the Red Hat EMEA Partner Summit
