The Project

News - 2007

  • 2007-09-19: Added section detailing which platforms are targeted. This covers dialects of make and the like.

  • 2007-09-15: We've grown a few more developers! Of particular interest: Tobias has been working on supporting OpenBSD (especially to allow TenDRA to build using its native make), and Kevin developing more expressive features for Lexi.

  • 2007-07-30: Lexi 1.3 is now released. This is a backwards-compatible release intended for existing users only. This includes a freshly-written user guide which was reverse-engineered from the source code. The interfaces to Lexi are due to change dramatically in forthcoming versions.

  • 2007-07-09: Added Kevin Santugini's developers' guide for SID. This is our first developer-orientated document!

  • 2007-07-05: As a side-effect from work on a docbook-to-ConTeXt system I'm writing elsewhere, the manpages are now available as PDF.

  • 2007-07-05: A Status section has been added to the website, showing architecture support and a roadmap of forthcoming intentions.

  • 2007-06-02: Sid 1.10 is now released. This is the first stand-alone version of Sid.

  • 2007-05-24: In preparation for releasing sid, I've restructured the way documentation is organised behind the scenes. One side-effect of this is that both chunked output and single pages are now available (see the documentation section). The calculus manpage is also available now, too.

  • 2007-05-21: Usually I wouldn't mention website changes as news, however I think this is significant enough to count; the website has been re-written, and the repository browsing is now handled by SVN::Web instead of Trac. A replacement for the ticket system will follow.

  • 2007-05-07: Added lexi and sid manpages to the documentation section.

  • 2007-04-26: After several years of development, asmodai has handed over the TenDRA project - thank you for all the work! It's now in my hands (hello, I'm Kate). Any problems now are probably my fault.

News - 2006

  • 2006-09-12: Added Robert Andrews' TenDRA Suite Purpose Overview in the documentation section.

  • 2006-08-13: Updated the tld documentation.

  • 2006-08-12: Updated the sid documentation.

  • 2006-04-27: Some belated Spring cleaning is going on within TenDRA. Expect changes on all fronts. Also be advised that non-member postings to mailinglists will be dropped.

News - 2005

  • 2005-09-21: Hook Trac up to the website and replace all navigation links. All Bugzilla content has been converted.

  • 2005-09-16: Reworked the Guide to the TDF/ANDF Specification.

  • 2005-08-05: Reworked the Calculus Users' Guide and TDF Diagnostic Specification, as well as adding the OSIRI paper Validation of TenDRA Capability to Implement a UNIX-like Operating System.

  • 2005-04-19: Added the TenDRA Wiki. Please see the navigation menu.

  • 2005-01-09: Added Danish mirror. Moved site to use XHTML 1.1. Added byakugan-commit and akuma-commit lists.

News - 2004

  • 2004-07-14: Import of dbx 3.4 from 4.4 BSD Alpha has been done as bdb.

  • 2004-07-13: There is no longer a mailing list for the bmake program, since we are now using Simon J. Garrety's bmake program. Mailing lists have been created for: aphex-commit, tasm-commit, tlink-commit. TenDRA's build framework is close to being rewritten completely.

  • 2004-02-19: Three new mailing lists have been created: diff-commit, grep-commit, and regex-commit. Please see the mailing list page for more information on subscribing. Also note that the directory structure has changed slightly. The snapshots and releases now have subdirectories for the individual projects. Online repository browsing is also possible. Please see the ViewCVS link.

  • 2004-02-10: Added the calculus User's Guide, C Checker Reference Manual, sid User's Guide, TDF Linker, TDF Notation Compiler, and tspec - An API Specification Tool documentation conversions. All images with the documentation should work now. A stopgap solution until I can replace them with new high-quality ones.

  • 2004-02-09: Quick conversion of PL_TDF's definition document is online. TDF and portability, TDF's Token Register, TDF Specification, and the tcc User's Guide are also online.

  • 2004-02-08: Under the documentation section I have placed two quick and dirty conversions of the original TenDRA documentation. Also the FAQ contains some entries.

  • 2004-02-03: TenDRA commit email send out to tendra-commit. Follow-ups will go to tendra-dev. Nightly snapshots are being made.

  • 2004-01-19: The Bugzilla bugtracker is online. It doesn't look all that spiffy yet and still has need of customisations, but that will gradually change over the coming days and weeks. I am also working with the Bugzilla and SVN teams to get SVN integration going so that reports get updated/closed with the relevant commit information.

News - 2003

  • 2003-11-13: Moved the repository to Subversion.
