I know it’s about two months now, but I finally got around to do the last steps that were missing for GeSHi Packaging it 😉 (more…)

Inkompatible Addons unter Firefox 4 nutzbar machen

Filed under: Software — Schlagwörter: , , , — BenBE @ 22:34:32

Ich benutze nun schon seit etwas längerem im Testbetrieb den Firefox 4 und die zugehörigen Betas, um die Verbesseungen mir anzuschauen und beim Suchen nach Fehlern zu Helfen. Ein Problem, was man hierbei als „Extremely Early Adopter“ hat, ist, dass gefühlte 100% der Extensions aus vorigen Firefox-Versionen nicht gehen. Um diesem Eindruck entgegen zu wirken, lässt sich jedoch beim Firefox 4 ein neu hinzugekommenes Setting setzen, mit dessen Hilfe der Firefox die Kompatibilität von Addons ignoriert – mit allen damit verbundenen Auswirkungen. Die Verwendung von Beta-Versionen erfolgt IMMER auf eigene Gefahr! (more…)

HTC desired – and bought!

Filed under: Allgemein — BenBE @ 18:00:58

Schon seit längerer Zeit war ich auf der Suche nach einem Ersatz für mein steinzeitliches Relikt, was man nur mit sehr viel Zynismus noch Telefon nennen konnte. Auch der Begriff „Knochen“ vermochte hier nicht mehr allzu viel Ähnlichkeit mit dem damit referenzierten Objekt aufzuzeigen, denn dies hätte zumindest grundlegend Funktionalität impliziert. (more…)

Possible rework on the GeSHi parser waiting for review

Filed under: GeSHi — Schlagwörter: , , , — BenBE @ 12:27:04

As announced earlier here’s some external work by Simon Gábor that might get into the GeSHi core IF I can get enough confidence in those changes to work properly and don’t cause any major regressions – which I currently lack nor can confirm by reviewing this patch. (more…)

GeSHi trapped in congestion of packaging pipeline

Filed under: GeSHi — Schlagwörter: , , , , , — BenBE @ 11:22:06

Hi folks,

maybe some of you already noticed, but there has already been an release of GeSHi about a month ago. If you now wonder why there is no download yet: Well, there was no time for packaging it yet, thus the only way for now is to grab the RELEASE_1_0_8_9 tag from the GeSHi SVN.

Again there are quite some changes in the release thus don’t forget to read the changelog to fetch ‚em all 😉

The next steps in getting the release out will be a small revise of a PHING release script by cweiske at the IRC channel, that aims to automate some of the stuff that has to be done for packaging, even though not necessary when just doing the tagging part of the releases. Just in case you wondered why actually packaging takes so long 😉

There will be a kinda preview of the next GeSHi release for sometime soon for all the changes that already got integrated so far. Mostly this affects a lot of new language files and changes to existing ones but minor patches to the LangCheck script are waiting too. To grab it just have a look at the RELEASE_STABLE branch at the GeSHi SVN; updates will go there. Currently I’m still trying to reduce the backlog of mails that accumulated, But I’m mostly done with it.

There’s one somewhat bigger patch still waiting in the pipeline that addresses an issue with „highlight-within-highlighted“ situations but due to major changes to the parser this patch introduces I didn’t review it yet. But more on this in another post.
