Another minor release is available for Tellico. Version 0.13.7 has an updated Dutch translation, thanks to Fred Marchee, an updated French translation, thanks to Regis Boudin, and fixes the following bugs:
- Fixed bug with clearing text in table fields.
- Fixed bug with cover images not being shown as icons in the
- Fixed bug for fields with reserved names, like entry or
- Fixed bug with illegal derived XML names, Debian #306067.
Regis Boudin has kindly contributed Tellico packages for the Debian sarge (3.1) and Ubuntu hoary (5.04) distributions. Sarge was frozen with version 0.13.3 and hoary was released with version 0.13.1 in its universe repository.
You can add
deb http://www.periapsis.org/tellico/download/deb sarge main
to your sources.list file for sarge binary packages and
deb-src http://www.periapsis.org/tellico/download/deb sarge main
for source packages. Hoary users should replace sarge with hoary.
I decided to use Novell Forge to host a mailing list for Tellico. I may end up using it for bug tracking, SVN, or file hosting as well, but that’s yet in the future.
For more information, visit the tellico-users info page or peruse the tellico-users list archives.
now, any topic is fair game, including bug reports, patches, requests for
enhancements, usage, etc. If the list volume ever merits it, I’ll create a
-devel or -i18n list, but for now, the -users list is the only one. Also, if the list volume picks up to something more than a few messages a week, I’ll add an -announce list just for release announcements, etc.
I happened to notice some of the recent “unofficial” names for geographic landmarks for Spirit and Opportunity. Among the mix are “Tennessee Valley” and “Cumberland Ridge”. The next thing you’ll know is that the TVA will be building dams on the canals up there!
“Larry’s Lookout” and “Husband HIll” are a couple of the others…
Marcel Gagné has posted his review of Tellico: The Cook’s Collection from the April 2005 issue of Linux Journal.
Robby Stephenson’s Tellico is billed as a collection manager though I like to think of it as a very versatile personal library system. It’s a great tool for keeping track of your many cookbooks as well as Linux books, science fiction books, mysteries, and so on.
Thanks for the kind review, Marcel!
