2nd May 2017

There's a new test release 2.11.1 out. Do test it, but be aware that there have been lots of internal changes so stability has probably taken a hit.

I'm planning to tweak the version numbering a bit from now on: even minor versions will indicate ‘stable’ branches and odd minor versions will indicate ‘unstable’ — so 2.11.x is on unstable and I will turn it into 2.12.0 when it has calmed down a bit.

18th April 2017

It has transpired that around noon GMT on 16th April the DCP-o-matic project in our bug database was deleted by actors unknown. It appears that they gained administrator rights in our installation of the Mantis bug tracker.

If you have a Mantis account and you use the same password on any other sites you are strongly advised to change this password everywhere it is used.

At the moment I don't think anything else on was compromised.

The bug tracker has been restored from a backup and I don't think much has been lost. If you added a bug or comment since 16th April you will need to re-add it.

Apologies for any inconvenience.
