New R_ tag: 151

posted by jamiemccarthy on 10:43 AM May 12th, 2004   Printer-friendly   Email story
Last night we sprinkled a trace amount of holy penguin pee on the CVS tag T_2_3_0_151 and pronounced it to also be our latest R_ tag, R_2_3_0_151. This is the latest R_ tag since _113, which was many weeks ago. (If you missed the memo, "T" is for testing and "R" is for releases. We still haven't dubbed anything "Slash 2.3.0" yet, but that's mostly because we're lazy.)

We feel pretty good about the stability of _151, it's been running on Slashdot for a couple of weeks and there are no real problems.

The big change, committed shortly after _151, is the switch from users.pl to login.pl for authentication and related operations. That seems to be working but it hasn't been tested enough to merit an R_ yet. In fact, this may be the last R_ tag that we do for a while, since there are big changes that will be committed in the weeks to come which will put the damper on R'ing.

Here's the CVS tree if you want to browse, and here are the instructions to download:


$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/  slashcode login
CVS password: (hit return, there is no password)
$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/  slashcode co slash
(much activity)
$ cd slash
$ cvs update -r R_2_3_0_151 -dP

  • What will this mean to those of us [trufen.net] who just installed 2.2.6?

    And what are the noteworthy changes?

  • Thanks for the T vs R note. So what is "release"-worthy of something that doesn't get released as a new version? Is it essentially just saying "we're moving closer to 2.3.0, really, and this code is a pretty stable step in that direction"? I haven't been following the development of slash that closely, so apologies if this is well-known. I'm hoping to try an install soon, as soon I can get MySQL to compile on my platform/arch.

  • Had to browse the man pages for a bit... Now it seems obvious. But anyway, you need to switch to slash's working directory first if you weren't there already. See bold below...

    $ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ slashcode login
    CVS password: (hit return, there is no password)
    $ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/ slashcode co slash
    (much activity)

    $ cd slash

    $ cvs update -r R_2_3_0_151 -dP

  • Perl module LWP and LWP::Parallel. So if you see warnings when you're trying to upgrade, install these modules through CPAN and you'll be all set.
