This version bump was long overdue sorry and it has happened only thanks to the great work of Thomas D. aka @Whissi, thanks again mate. Please read carefully because this version introduces major ebuild changes, you’ll probably have to adapt your current configuration ! ebuild changes New default configuration with up to date syntax, we […]
I’ve been slacking on this package for some months but slowly got the chance to catch-up with the multiple bugs open. So today I’m glad to say to make this blog post not only for a version bump release but also for some nice added features and ebuild improvements fixing 6 bugs in a row. […]
