Thunderbird probleem opgelost

In mijn vorige post gaf ik aan dat er met Thunderbird en boks.com een probleem was. Dit probleem heb ik gisteren op de server opgelost (ik gaf ten onrechte Thunderbird de schuld…..).

Je kunt nu Thunderbird laatste versie probleemloos gebruiken!

 

Thunderbird probleem

Thunderbird 38.0.1 heeft weer een TLS/SSL probleem met de IMAP server op boks.com . Voer dan ook geen automatische update uit, maar blijf bij versie 31.7.0 .

 

Zie ook mijn vorige post hierover. Dit is blijkbaar een probleem dat zich herhaalt, als iemand foute code incheckt in het Thunderbird project.

 

 

Muninn 1.7.0 released

Hi everyone ,

an annoying bug in Muninn was causing crashes when starting or stopping the application. This had no impact on the password database (your passwords were saved safely in all versions), but a crashing application is not a proof of good software engineering practices…….

I fixed the bug which was caused by an improper startup and shutdown order of the underlying Botan cryptographic library.

Version 1.7.0 (with this bug fix) can be downloaded from the FTP server.

 

 

FreeBSD rocks!

Today I upgraded my server from FreeBSD 10.0 to 10.1 .  Without problems and with very little fuss, I rebuilt my entire system + kernel in just an hour. No warnings, no complications, no issues – FreeBSD just works. All my installed ports and user settings are running again, as if nothing changed.

So, here I would like to say it one more time :

 

FreeBSD community, thank you again for providing such an outstanding operating system !!

Muninn 1.5 released

Muninn 1.5 is a bugfix, and was released today.  It can be found on the FTP server.

 

 

Muninn 1.4 released

Muninn version 1.4 was released today. It now incorporates the option to set up a simplified interface for version control with SVN or Git . This was done to accommodate distribution of password databases in a Version-Controlled environment.

Muninn_14_svn

Muninn SVN Status request

The version control interface is restricted to Unix/Linux and Mac OS X, however – Windows users will have to wait until I figure out how to call SVN or Git on a Windows system.

Muninn 1.4 is multilingual (Dutch, German and English) and was released on Apple Mac OS X 10.6 or greater, FreeBSD, Linux and MS Windows 7 or greater .

It can be found on my FTP server.

Muninn 1.3 uitgebracht

Muninn versie 1.3 is uitgebracht. (zie hier voor bericht over vorige versie).

Muninn_1_3

Muninn op Mac OS X

Muninn_1_3_FreeBSD

Muninn op FreeBSD

Verbeterpunten:

  • Wisselen tussen verschillende wachtwoord databases met verschillende hoofdwachtwoorden  is nu simpeler geworden.
  • Controle op hoofdwachtwoord dat in een database is gebruikt wordt nu automatisch gedaan.

Zorg bij eerste gebruik van Muninn 1.3 dat het hoofdwachtwoord dat nodig is voor de database ook het laatst gebruikte hoofdwachtwoord is, anders wordt je buitengesloten!

Muninn is beschikbaar voor

  • Apple Mac OS X 10.6 en hoger
  • FreeBSD (amd64)
  • Microsoft Windows & en hoger (i386 en amd64)

en kan worden gedownload vanaf onze FTP server.

 

Thunderbird versie 31 SSL/TLS probleem – voer geen update uit

De laatste release van Thunderbird (31.0) heeft een SSL/TLS certificaat fout (en ook hier). Dit betekent dat met deze release het niet mogelijk is om boks.com IMAP emails binnen te halen.

Tijdelijke oplossing :

  • Voorkom dat Thunderbird zichzelf naar versie 31.0 opwaardeert. Ga naar Voorkeuren/Gevanceerd/Update en schakel Updates uit :

Thunder_update

  • (Af te raden) Gebruik een andere mail client (Apple Mail)

De Mozilla gemeenschap is bezig een fix te schrijven, dus daar moet op gewacht worden.

 

 

Muninn 1.2 released

A “good login policy” dictates the usage of strong passwords. When a website or other access system asks you to “Enter your new password” you must come up with something that is hard to link to you or the login.  Although a good starting point, in practice this is mitigated by the fact that nobody can remember more than a handful of random passwords – you see that a typical person will enter the same password everywhere, rendering the “good login policy” useless. Once the password has been discovered or retrieved, all logins of this person are compromised.

Muninn resolves the memory problem for passwords, and in this new version the “good login policy” is also served – Muninn now has its own random password generator.

I incorporated the APG password generator (which is present on my FreeBSD system but not widely known in the Windows world) into Muninn. Normally , I would use APG for generating passwords, but it involves starting a shell and typing the apg command. In Muninn, things are easier:

When the account fields entry dialog window  is modal, an APG button is present. APG generates passwords based on the preferences presented in the dialog window.

Coming up with yet another inventive password is now easier than ever !

Munnin Binaries can be found on my FTP server in the muninn directory.

 

Kalender version 2.0 released

My Birthday and events calender (called “Kalender” after the Dutch word for calender) was released as version 2.0 today.

Kalender

The program now sports a detached picture window, as opposed the old picture window in the main program. His was done to accommodate different picture sizes and formats more easily.

The languages features were updated and the program can be used in Dutch, German or English now.

A column indicating the age of the event has been added.

And a number of small bug fixes have been applied.

Kalender 2.0 is released on :

– Apple Mac OS X 10.6 and higher

– MS Windows 7 and higher, in 32 and 64 bit variants.

– FreeBSD 10.0 64 bit variant. Please not you will have install wxWidgets and SQLite3  yourself on this platform (no port mechanism has been introduced yet).

Please take notice that Kalender’s database file structure is completely platform-independent. The makers of SQLite3 have done a very nice job of maintaining binary compatibility for SQLite databases and this application can take advantage of that fact (SQLite3 excels in many other aspects too…. it is a super database). This means an event database which was created on Apple Mac OS X can be used without any issues on Windows or other platforms, or vice versa.

 

Kalender Binaries can be found on my FTP server in the kalender directory.
