Happy Yule ! Have a Wonderful Holiday.

Posting rules: It shouldn't need saying, but... play nice. Please keep your discussions civil. You can disagree, just don't be disagreeable. And, of course, all of the usual stuff like no spamming. Tex adds: I'll be rigorously enforcing this as we go along. We're probably going to be a small community in a little lifeboat, so we can't have members at each others' throats. This is for the sake of the project as a whole. So when you post, pretend you're speaking in person with your very wealthy auntie who has always treated you wonderfully and currently lists you prominently in her will. I won't be tossing anyone out of the forums because we are all in this together (except spammers: immediate membership cancelation), but I'll delete suspect posts right away.

Happy Yule (to those of us who keep to the old ways...), Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah (just passed)!  And just in time for the holiday Masahiro brings you a gift.  From his email to me: "I've just uploaded new packages, v4.1.0beta14, in time for Xmas. :)

There were a lot of parts to change to internationalize help files on all OS's, so I needed longer time than I had estimated."  Changelog is here: https://github.com/ktgw0316/LightZone/wiki/ChangeLog.  Now, on to Yule feast prep---read more if you want to see the menu....

Yohohohohoo make yourself a gift

Sounds just like a good meal


From me a big THANK YOU to everyone contributing (testing, using, developing, maintaining, translating) For the last word (translating) I am giving myself, and maybe a few others a nice gift. LightZone will speak my own language. But I am sure it could speak many more languages. It is not that hard work. But you may need some spare time. So contact Mashihiro (A BIG THANK YOU to him) and move on with any help you can offer. Contributing is fun. And you are giving yourself and others a free gift.

Happy Holiday, Christmas, Yule and winter solstice to everybody

Fedora 21

Hello and congrats on the new beta! Are you plaining on building for Fedora 21? I don't mean to be presumtuous,
but it would seem like a good idea to, given that Fedora 18 has been EOL for almost a year and 19 will be shortly.

Happy new years!

.. Mads

Fedora 20/21 repos

You can find repositories for Fedora 20 and 21 here: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/ktgw0316:/LightZone:/lightzone-testing/

There are "home:ktgw0316:LightZone:lightzone-testing.repo" files in Fedora_2* folders.

Copy one of them (right for your system) to your /etc/yum.repos.d and remove the old one for Fedora 18. Do it as root, of course.

And now - simply - yum update...

I just updated Ligtzone 4.0.0 to 4.1.0~beta14. I feel that new version is a little bit slower.
