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.

Fixed: VOICE News mailing list and feed to c.o.o.announce

eComStationNews.com - Sun, 20140706 - 10:43 -0600

I have finally fixed the VOICE news mailing list feed and the push to the c.o.o.announce newsgroup. News items which have been approved should be relayed to both at fifteen minute intervals.

If you are reading this on the VOICE homepage or from an RSS feed reader and you used to be subscribed to the VOICE news mailing list, it is possible that your address changed and we do not have your current one. Please feel free to subscribe again, by completing the form on the following page:


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.
