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> 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 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: (not there yet) Thanks for your patience!

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!


New Homepage on the wiki

August 31, 2008

Aditya has reorganized the home page of the wiki, and I like it a lot. It looks more structured and I am sure that the users will be happy with that change. So if you have any comments, please post them on the mailing list or to this post.



Yet another logo suggestion – what do you think?

August 24, 2008

There is yet another suggestion by Taco H., just comment on it!


News from the ConTeXt meeting

August 24, 2008

We are having a good time at the context meeting in Bohinj, Slovenia! Besides the talks you can find on the webpage, we have other interesting talks and event:

  • Discussion about distributing context
  • Excursion to a technical museum (we’ve made a TeX glyph) and a very impressive cave
  • An attempt to design a (new) logo for context
  • All kinds of discussions while sitting at a bonfire

To put it in two words, the meeting is “just great”.

Server maintenance

The server is currently down due to a RAM replacement. It will be back up in a few minutes.

The admins

updates coming soon

June 24, 2008

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.


garden admins at the context meeting

June 23, 2008

Welcome to the news site!


As you might know, there is the second context meeting in August in Slovenia. If you want to talk to any of the garden maintainers or any other TeXies, just go there and you have a great chance to learn a lot about context.
