mailing list down

July 27, 2009

You have already noticed that the mailing list (which is kindly hosted by the ntg) is currently down. This can’t be considered “news” anymore, but I just want to let you know that the admins are working on it.

Update: please use the comments below to discuss where we can talk in the meantime. Should we start an temporary google group? A yahoo discussion group?



Next context meeting

July 17, 2009

I hope I will meet you at the next context meeting in September. Make sure you bring a small present with you: a very important developer you all know has his birthday on the first day of the conference!


Happy birthday, contextgarden

July 17, 2009

We celebrate contextgarden‘s fifth birthday on 24th of July 2009. So thanks to all people who help me with the server (DANTE e.V., Mojca, Arthur and others) and thanks to all users!


New server

October 11, 2008

I will be moving the garden to a new server this weekend. You probably didn’t notice it, but the 20 gig harddrive is full, so we need more space for all the great ConTeXt related files. 

Let’s keep our fingers crossed that everything works out fine. Please tell us (gardeners at if you find anything that is broken. Thanks!


updates coming soon

Behind the scenes: texshow

Mojca and I are currently working on update of texshow(-web). More attractive and less spam. The current texshow-web is
not good at keeping up to date with changes to the source file ‘cont-en.xml’ (and its ilk). We are planning to change that, too.
