January 2022 updates

Post by WinterMute » Wed Feb 02, 2022 12:59 pm

Here's to 2022 being a better year for everyone after the trials and tribulations of basically the last 3, Sorry these regular announcements stopped for a bit although our updates and work behind the scenes hadn't stopped at all. We've merely been taking stock and recuperating after yet another bout of harassment and abuse. I don't really want to get into the details of what's happened or, unlike our detractors, get into finger pointing and name calling in public venues. Suffice to say that there are human beings with actual feelings who maintain these tools and libraries. Several communications have crossed the line to the extent that they have been reported to relevant authorities.

There have been quite a few updates this month and quite a bit of preparation and research into bringing up Apple Silicon binaries given that the fundraiser is approaching its target and an m1 MacBook is very much within sight.

Thanks to all of you who have offered words of encouragement and support in these trying times and thanks to our Patrons who help make it possible to continue our quest to make homebrew programming accessible and help improve standards for everyone.
