New flattr button

January 18, 2011

I’ve added a new flattr button to the wiki. Maybe it helps to finance the server? Currently I pay approx. 20 Euro / month (~ 25 USD). It’s not much, but it adds up. So if you think you want to support contextgarden.net anonymously, just click on the new flattr button on the wiki.¬†Thanks!

German ConTeXt forum?

March 4, 2010

Are there any users out there that are interested in a german ConTeXt forum? There is an effort on http://context.pytalhost.de/index.php, so you have a look at the page and perhaps discuss it on the main mailing list? Should we have a forum on contextgarden.net?

News from the git repository

July 29, 2009

Due to the linear development of context I have decided to change the repository layout. We used a stable and a beta branch before, but this seems like its not a good idea. The development goes like this: all changes are put into one single internal source “repository”. All releases (zips) get a name, such as experimental, beta or stable (we only see the beta and the stable). So for the repository I will do the opposite: unzip the release and label the state of the source code beta or stable.

Any comments?

<update>: you need to delete the old repository and then issue the following commands:

git clone http://dl.contextgarden.net/distribution/git/

That’s it. If you want to stay up to date then do

git pull

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?

New git repository

July 17, 2009

For those who love source code…

There is now a new git repository with the full context source code at http://dl.contextgarden.net/distribution/git/. There are two branches one with the stable release of context (aka current) and one with the beta release. Just do this:

git clone http://dl.contextgarden.net/distribution/git/

Now you have all stable releases since 10/1997 and all beta releases since 5/2009. The stable branch is the default branch, to switch to the beta branch you can do something like

git checkout -b beta origin/beta

update 2009-07-17: The repository is synchronized every day shortly after midnight. So todays stable will be there tomorrow morning.

texshow-web overhaul

April 4, 2009

I am currently editing texshow-web (aka references). There has been a lot (!) of spam. Now you need to login with your wiki-password in order to edit pages. I hope that texshow-web will be useful once again.

spam on the mailing list archive

February 12, 2009

The mailing list seems to be down at the moment. If you’ve visited the mailing list archive these days, you have probably noticed a lot of spam that has been sent to archive <at> contextgarden.net. I have removed the spam from 2009 from the archive and installed spam protection. Hopefully this archive will stay clean now.

Now finally – the new server

January 18, 2009

Within the next 24 hours contextgarden.net will be on a new machine. Expect some broken things. If things keep being broken after one day from now, I’d be happy to receive bug reports. Warning: this also affects the update of the distribution (formally known as the “minimals”). I’ll put a page on the wiki where I list the status of the transition: http://wiki.contextgarden.net/New_Server (not there yet) Thanks for your patience!
