0.12.1: Bugfix release

this releases fixes an annoying segfault when einit starts. same notes that apply to 0.12 applay to this one, so watch out if you update from 0.10!

Version 0.12 is out!

Featuring lots of feature requests, this latest release got rather stable.

NOTE: please do note that users of version 0.10 and some (old) 0.11 versions WILL need to re-configure. the only configuration files are now einit.xml and local.xml.

Gentoo/Linux Portage Overlay

Yesterday I released a Gentoo portage overlay that contains a live CVS ebuild of eINIT, for all of you who are rather adventurous and just happen to be using this great linux distribution ;)

Since I wasn't quite sure about whether or not I could put that on sf.net's project webspace, I figured it'd be best if I hosted the .tbz2 on a private server of mine. There's a link to the tarball containing the overlay on einit's project home page. Just grab that and untar it to your portage overlay, unmask sys-apps/einit, emerge and enjoy. If you need more help on using portage overlays, just check your Gentoo/Linux documentation. Feedback welcome ;)

Version 0.02 released!

I made the second release tonight. It works properly now, can boot my box to X and the default visualiser looks a lot neater. I ironed out quite some nasty bugs, although we still have some show-stoppers. Feel free to try it out and give me some feedback =)

First public Release

I was able to boot one of my boxes into a sorta-usable state a few days ago, and I've been improving eINIT a little over that, thus I think now is the time for a first release.

However, I still consider this piece of software pre-alpha, which is why this project is still labeled as such, and thus the usual precautions apply:

DO NOT EXPECT TOO MUCH; DO NOT USE UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'RE DOING! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Making Progress

Since eINIT got sort of stable/theoretically usable last week, I went ahead and created some user documentation. It's in CVS along with the sources, and I made a small, sucky website to serve as a homepage for project eINIT until I get around to create something proper. The website sucks badly, and only includes the automatically generated User's Guide, but at least it's something to look at and something to show that I'm not idling around on this project.
