MAINTENANCE – MAGEIA 6 and CAULDRON
- areca-backup 7.5
areca-backup wasn’t properly working starting from Mageia 5 because of its dependency to Java (proprietary).
Consider also that areca-backup seems no longer maintained upstream (last version released on August, 26th 2015) but there are still users that, like me, need that tool to backup/restore important data.
It was thus necessary to make it work with openjdk, with our current version of GTK and so on: that’s why I made a few patches to be able to make it fully functional again
- davmail 4.8.5 (latest version)
The new version is now available in Cauldron.
davmail is awesome when you have to interface your thunderbird to and Exchange Server made available through EWS.
That’s all. See you next month and… thanks for reading
