I've packaged up the recent changes made to wmiirc-lua and released a new version.
This release is mostly about bug fixes, and moving things around. Particularly, I've
moved the project to github, and also the new configuration
files live in
~/.wmii-3.5 (which clearly didn't make sense).
There are many fixes to the packaging and startup scripts to make things more robust. I've also revisited and fixed building Debian packages (at least for Debian/Lenny).
If you've used the kitchen sink repository you should note that this repository is being deprecated in favour of storing the wmii and libixp repositories as submodules of wmii-lua -- so no need for a container repo like the kitchen sink.
I expect that some day this font will be packaged by Debian, but for now I had to:
wget 'http://launchpadlibrarian.net/21202254/ttf-droid_1.00%7Eb112%2Bdfsg-0ubuntu1_all.deb' sudo dpkg -i ttf-droid_1.00\~b112+dfsg-0ubuntu1_all.deb
Because I am a big console junkie I don't use proprtional fonts much, but they do look nice on the web.
A kind wmiirc-lua user, Sytse Wielinga (sytse on irc), had debugged an old issue in luaixp code I had written for wmiirc-lua.
While this bug directly addresses raw mode (Mod4-space), I belive that this will fix a bunch of weird issues so I released v0.2.5. Since v0.2.4 there was also a small bug in the battery plugin that was fixed.
For ever now some friends and I have been talking about making essential packages, which would pull in all the tools that we often use on Debian. So here goes...
With the power of the equivs package, this is actually a very short procedure.
