The code for sndioctl is complete, but no release has been made since the changes were completed.  I guess you knew that though. I'll probably make a new stable release after I make some of the changes needed for 2.4.  Sorry for not rushing out a new release. I understand sndio users see this as an important update, but I must balance my work load and more releases mean more work handling those releases and less time developing of the actual software.

Also zapper, I must apologize for failing to respond to the message you posted on codeberg concerning this. I was not ignoring you. It was just a matter of being involved in too many things at one time.

No worries, I just was waiting for some response, thank you though, I appreciate it. smile

Re: JWM KIT love fest

"As I said around a year ago (?), there is little difference between that project's attitude with regards to trademarks and mozilla's, except mozilla have better people skills.

As I also said around the same time - all browsers are shit, along with the WWW itself.  My philosophy is simple: I pick the best of a bad lot, then configure it to my needs.  what I avoid doing is going "window shopping" for browser forks, where there are all kinds of claims and boasts and it really amounts to little more than customisations you could do yourself and a fancy logo and different name...

At the moment, though chromium is more secure, telemetry/harvesting of data and privacy is a bigger issue there, so I use firefox - even though I dislike many things they have done recently."

I found a new method for web browser stuff for Hyperbola, its called badwolf + hblock!

I modified /etc/hosts and use it to block as many ads as possible...

I disagree on the security of chromium, due to the many leaks, but you are free to believe what you wish...

I should add, you can modify hblock to add or remove filterlists as long as they are in raw format.

Hope this helps someone who wants to escape the bs of modern web browsers.

Wow, this is fantastic zapper! Takes all the manual labor out of constantly updating those adblock files. Awesome, thanks!

I thought so too, it is very useful, isn't it... smile

This is what helped somewhat:

It was good advice, because if not for that, I would have never looked for an answer within github, etc...
