The MirBSD Korn Shell R39b has been released. This upgrade is strongly recommended for everyone. While being a stable series release there are, due to standards compliance and bug fixes, a number of caveats users should be aware of when upgrading. Also new, the list of full terms and conditions applying to it. Users (and distributors intending to support mksh for their own customers) should definitively read the caveats, although only corner cases are incompatible (ask for details).

The arc4random.c page now at least has some content, and a lot of links, too.

The kwalletcli page has been completely written by now. I'm proud to announce the availability of the CLI for the KDE Wallet, as distfile, as Debian squeeze/sid package (it's already in testing, yes), and as Debian lenny package, soon to be in backports (currently only in my own play repo, as I'm waiting for bpo upload rights – apparently, my PGP key wrecked the software).

I would like to apologise for the delay; I've been more-than-busy at first (preparing MirBSD for FOSDEM), then in foreign countries where people talk in weird tongues, then ill. I'm still not totally recovered, and there is also much catching-up work to do.
