A good news for all SLAMPP users around the world, soon or perhaps to be exactly, someday next week, we will release another new maintenance release of SLAMPP 2.0 (Kalinda), 2.0.2. In this release we have fixed several issues found in the previous ones, provide more documentation and How To, and some other interesting features. What makes this release so interesting is that the whole development process of this release has been done by a special SLAMPP fan who now becomes my co-developer and maintainer.
You might be wondering who this guy is anyway. His name is Clinton Tinsley and you can read his short profile here. He also was the one who presented SLAMPP at UTOSC 2009. It feels great that I finally have someone else onboard. Welcome Clint! For the rest, I guess, I will leave it to Clint. He will provide more details about the release soon.
Another exciting news coming recently, Thomas, a Linux Editor of Datormagazin, a Swedish computer magazine, has let me know that he had written an article about SLAMPP on October 2009 edition of that magazine. So, if you live in the nearby area of Swedia, please consider to get that magazine. Thanks Thomas for your great support. 🙂
Alright guys, that will be all short news from my side. I hope we could deliver SLAMPP 2.0.2 soon to you. Have a good weekend!
I just received an information from my friend, Clint Tinsley. He is going to host a Linux Home ServerBoF at Utah Open Source Conference 2009 on October 8, 2009, at Miller Campus of the Salt Lake Community College, Sandy, Utah. He will demonstrate SLAMPP 2.0.1 to get the conversation started. It is surely a good news for me and I really appreciate Clint’s work there. Sadly, I can not attend that event in person due to my personal situation right now. I hope Clint’s BoF will be running well and people could take something useful from there. Wish you good luck, friend!
Just a quick information to you all. Vladimir Kolev has let me know that SLAMPP 2.0 also appears on LinuxUser Magazine 09/2009, one of popular Linux magazine in Germany. They also have bundled SLAMPP 2.0 together with some other major distributions on two full featured DVD. So, this is the issue you should not miss, guys. Best bargain!
Thank you for your useful information, Vladimir. I hope everybody could enjoy using or running SLAMPP.
FYI, I already started the development of SLAMPPLite 3.0, code-named “PUTRI”. What makes it different with its big brother is that I will only include one or two applications for each tasks. SLIM login manager and lightweight window manager will be used, XAMPP package will serve the web, database and ftp activities, plus other featured applications that are not going to be revealed now. I am sorry I can not provide you at the moment the exact ETA for the release. Let’s just hope it will be available soon and everything is going smoothly. Don’t worry, I will keep you updated!
