Things have been quiet on the DCC Alliance front lately, but that’s because we’ve been working to deliver what we said we’d deliver at LinuxWorld last month—we certainly don’t want to come across as big on talking about how much we’re going to help Debian, but lacking any actual contributions yet. After all, code talks and bullshit walks.
In that spirit, here’s an update on our progress:
First and foremost, the first preview release of the DCC, DCC 3.0 PR1, was made available late last week. PR1 supports the i386 architecture.
DCC 3.0 PR2 will be made available late this week or early next week. PR2 adds support for the ia64 and amd64 architectures and fixes a handful of bugs in PR1.
We expect to achieve full LSB 3.0 compliance with PR2 and be very close to the final DCC 3.0 ready for LSB 3.0 certification.
Technical details as of PR1 are in the release announcement; I’ll post the PR2 release announcement with final technical details here.
Technical issues are being discussed on an open mailing list. Feel free to join and participate:
We’ve also created a general discussion list for non-technical issues, including, but not limited to, our flagrant misappropriation of the letter D:
Back to work.
