At this point everyone is fully bought in to the idea that the log4j team must urgently fix this because everyone is relying on them. There’s not even a question about doing otherwise. Why? Again–because we have this pervasive open source mythology that open source is about open community, governance, security, and all those nice-sounding ideas.

Replying to Re: Dracula met tmux (…)

Sure 😅 I was just a bit shocked that tmux also has one. For some reason I just always think of it as a rather small tool but, sure, it has so much functionality and scriptability inside of it that it makes sense to also have plugins which need to be managed.

The new release finally integrates with the Files app, something that previously prevented me from using Cryptomator. They’ve also changed the pricing model, going with a free version that can only read encrypted vaults while the full version also offers write-access. € 11.99 for a lifetime account is fair but there are also some offers if you’ve purchased version 1.x in the past (either free or just €1.99 if you want to make a donation).
