  New versions of some skarnet.org packages are available.
  This is mostly a bugfix release, with some new features.

skalibs- (minor)
s6- (release)
s6-dns- (release)
s6-networking- (release)
tipidee- (minor)
shibari- (new!)

  * skalibs-

  Despite the minor bump, that was necessary for one of the bug fixes,
this is still a bugfix release - but an important one. All users
should upgrade.

  The upgrade breaks the build of old s6 and s6-networking versions,
despite not being a major upgrade. This is intentional; the 'broken'
functionality actually never worked, and the old interfaces *could*
never work, so, better get rid of them and expose problems at build time
rather than run time. The new versions of s6 and s6-networking use the
new, working interfaces. Other packages are not impacted.


  * tipidee-

  tipidee now supports ranges! And also a new XXX_no_translate
configuration option, which - as the name implies - is pretty dangerous:
it disables path translations and interprets the requested URI as is,
which allows symlinks to documents located outside of the server's root.


  * shibari-

  A brand new project, because I clearly don't have enough on my plate.
  shibari is a suite of DNS tools, a successor to s6-dns. Eventually it
will fully replace s6-dns, but for now it simply depends on it. This
first version of shibari comes with two DNS server programs (one for UDP
and one for TCP), that are more or less drop-in replacements for djb's
tinydns and axfrdns. (I wrote them because it was a better long-term
solution than adding a patch to fix a bug in axfrdns.)


  Bug-reports welcome - but I probably won't be working much on them
during the end of the year.

  Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and happy new year!
