Leopard delayed. And I get a new lease of life.
Category : Commentary/leopardDelayed.txt
I was beginning to understand that I wasn't going to be able to get new versions of MailServe, DNS Enabler and WebMon out in time if Leopard were to be released in May or June. Quite a few things still don't work, like SMTP authentication using SASLDB and CRAM-MD5, e.g., which I've been struggling with over the last three weeks.
The trouble is, it's hard to find any information over the web, due to the non-disclosure agreement. So we have to be circumscribed about it. Let's just say, imagine NetInfo is gone, and so is lookupd. What do we have to do, to do things in an equivalent way?
That's the kind of things that need to be solved, before we can even think about putting in new features or taking advantage of the new interface elements in Leopard.
So, Leopard being delayed to October is great, at least for me. No excuses, though, if I don't then do a better job by October.
