gnome-pkgview is a tool for inspecting the versions of GNOME libraries installed on your system. The information is often useful when submitting bug reports or diagnosing system problems.

Version 1.0.7 (Portsoken) finally detects Ubuntu installations and adds Kinyarwanda, Icelandic and Canadian English translations.

I've said before that there are intended to be no more 1.0.x releases, and now I hope to look at some of the feature requests I've received over the past year or so. It has of course not happened yet. Apologies. Life is complicated!

I've had a home on the web for more years than I care to remember, and a few kind souls persuade me it's worth persisting with keeping it updated. This current incarnation of the site is centred around the blog posts which began back in 1999 as 'the daylog' and continued through my travels and tribulations during the following years.

I don't get out and about nearly as much these days, but I do try to record significant events and trips for posterity. You may also have arrived here by following the trail to my former music blog Songs Heard On Fast Trains. That content is preserved here too.
