Abstract

Summary of miscellaneous topics discussed on the aros-dev mailinglist during January 2002.

Webspace, Download, CVS

Sebastian Heutling <sheutlin@mail.cs.uni-magdeburg.de>:

If we don't get into sourceforge we could try savannah: http://savannah.gnu.org/

Datatypes

netpbm.datatype

I have laying around a netpbm.datatype here.

It uses NetPBM to load any picture, so we just need to port NetPBM (very portable) to AROS to have access to every human known pictureformat on the planet.

Oh, but you can link with libcygwin.a and avoid this restriction. Please see the note at http://cygwin.com/licensing.html
