BLH and Brewnix are merged

The code for the Curses-based Brewnix and Tcl/Tk/Tix based BLH has been merged. It should appear in the CVS before the end of the month and Brewnix 1.1 will be released in the first half of November.

BLH TCL GUI now available in CVS

An older attempt at a TCL based GUI for brewnix (entitled 'Brewer's Little Helper') has been found, and is now available in the CVS tree, under the 'blh' branch. This may be folded into the main branch, or set up as a separate point in the future. It is included now only to have the source 'be' somewhere.

This software is NOT based on brewnix 1.2, and autoconf support does NOT exist as of yet.

Tarball will be available later this evening.

New how-to document

For those who were befuddled as to how to get BrewNIX up and running, there is a new document under (naturally) the docs section. Entitled: v 1.01 README.first, it works with the tarball release.

users mailing list is up

Another new mailing list is up and running. This is for users of BrewNIX. This will be about how to use the software, and is unmoderated, so it's likely that some discussions of brewing will also pop up.

announcement lists available

The brewnix-announce mailing list and archives are now available. This is a low volume list, and only traffic from some of the developer's is sent out. It is expected to have only one or two posts per month, primarily to announce new versions, but also requests for help.

This is not the place for help requests. For that, go to the forums at:

or, soon, the help mailing list.... read more

CVS is up

CVS is up and running. Seems a little wonky, not sure if I have it set right, but screw it for now.
