SM 2.14, TB17.0.11pre and FF 17.0.11

eComStationNews.com - Sun, 20140706 - 17:09 -0600

I've uploaded the above to Hobbes. Fixes backported from the Bitwise 24.3 branch, fpu crash fixed, glyph boxes instead of TAB and LF fixed and a few other minor fixes. A slightly different way of fixing the 100% CPU plugin problem, may need fine tuning for some plugins as it is only prefs. Firefox rebuilt with official branding.
Usual requirements, libc065, mzfntcfgft, pthr01.dll (pthread), mmap.dll, stdcpp6.dll (libstdc++), gcc446.dll and gcc473.dll depending on the version of pthr01.dll installed. RPM package names in brackets.
I've been using TB and SM for weeks without a problem besides they are slow, Firefox is basically identical to my previous upload excepting branding and a preference.
Thanks to Bitwise who are responsible for the vast majority of the recent work done.

Thanks to all for your patience and support, and we look forward to sharing some good and interesting news with everyone again in the near future.

Cheers/2

These are available from my site at os2ports.smedley.id.au

Major Major mailing list

eComStationNews.com - Sun, 20140629 - 20:56 -0600

Version 1.68 of Major Major is now available from
www.pmoylan.org/pages/os2/Major.html
or from
ftp://ftp.pmoylan.org/Major/major1.68.zip
or from Hobbes incoming.

Major Major is a mailing list manager, that lets you create and manage
multiple e-mail discussion lists.

(It is not spamming software, because it allows list members to
unsubscribe. In any case, we retain the right to take retaliatory
measures against anyone who uses it to send unwanted mail.)

The latest version has two significant changes.

1. The ability to break up outgoing mail into small batches, each for a
subset of list members, to deal with deal with mail servers that do not
respect the RFC rules about number of mail recipients. Making the batch
limit small is inefficient, and creates a higher load on mail servers,
but might be needed to deal with hostile servers.

2. An option for DMARC compatibility. DMARC is a "standard" implemented
by spammer-friendly mail providers such as AOL and Yahoo, which has the
side-effect of making life difficult for mailing lists. You might need
this option for lists whose members are unable to receive list mail.
