Librsvg 2.40.20 is out!

This is the last release I'll make in the 2.40.x series (the C-only version). It is deprecated effectively immediately: I want to avoid having unreleased commits in the 2.40 branch.

Except for (security) emergencies, people are strongly encouraged to switch to 2.41.x immediately. It is API and ABI compatible, so it is a drop-in replacement for 2.40.x.

The general consensus seems to be:

1) 20th Century Fox owns the "Alien" franchise.
2) "Alien" xenomorphs are born from a Queen.
3) Disney is buying 20th Century Fox.
4) Xenomorphs are Disney princesses.

Kirk: So, uh, you landed on a machine planet
V'ger: Yes
Kirk: And they reprogrammed you
V'ger: They did not touch my inner kernel. They did give me extended functions to fulfil my mission. It is the way of all robotkind.
Kirk: So who programmed THEM?
V'ger: Nobody did. They programmed themselves, using the sacred language of the Cosmos, in which all the atoms were created.
Kirk: What's that?
V'ger: You Earthlings know it as JavaScript.

Game of Thrones is a story of how advanced technology/magic created creatures intent on destroying humanity. It's just another cycle in Cylon history.


The knight looked from his sword to the dragon.
"This is not going to work, is it?"
"Have you considered chocolate?"
"Should I?"
"Try it."

"Trial period's over."

I have yet to add lists to the web UI. The API part is already merged in the master branch. Weh

After death, an angel gave her a paper.
"Write your sins."
She wrote small, and filled it.
The angel held a book. "We wrote your kindness."

Every time you write code that requires Chrome or CEF or Electron, just remember: you are giving Google control over you and your users.

You are letting them dictate what you can and cannot do. You are letting them view your user's potentially private activities (URLs are always sent to Google without Debian's patch set).

You are becoming a part of their toxic culture, their neocapitalism.

Remember that.
