I recently had a chat with DrStein, project leader of the Denora IRC Statistics project, about the future of both Anope and Denora. We both want to move to C++ with the next generation core and since we both basically are U:lined servers with slightly different clients, we thought we could work together on a brand new C++ core for both of our projects.
Details are still sparse since we still need to work out the details, but I am pretty sure this will lead to a decent, project-independent core. Having two projects using the core from start will allow us to fine-tune the core to include everything both of us need, but exclude everything that would make the core only really usable for a single project (like with the current Anope core).
I will post more news on this when there are plans on how things will take shape :)
I dont like C++. With C++ the anope core will be more heavy :(
Maybe, but it will give the devs more options that were difficult with plain C
Flavio, that's not actually true. There are ircd's written in C++ that are well under 1MB in size tarballed that comparable ircd's written in C are well over 1mb tarballed and the C++ ircd has 99% of the features the ircd in C has and then some.
It really boils down to the code it's self, you can bloat anything in any language.
The trolls are tinyrg to ruin pdpc/freenode by making the network inhospitable and making people stop supporting it. By supporting it in spite of this, you'll be counteracting it. By having a donator cloak, you'll be showing that you're supporting freenode in spite of it. You'll show the trolls that they're not turning you off freenode.
Really trustworthy blog. Please keep updating with great posts like this one. I have booked marked your site and am about to email it to a few friends of mine that I know would enjoy reading..
You don’t need a bigger sensor to shoot 1080p (versus 720p). Both cameras have sensors that will allow for video at much higher resolutions (either could do full 4K cinema resolution); it’s the video processing subsystem that decides the final video resolution. Nikon saw video as a convenience add-on for reportage while Canon is going for the indy cinematographer market with a vengeance. Different strokes.
