New FreeBSD site

The first Google SoC Project was integrated into CVS. FreeBSD now has a new website, the first major redesign since nearly a decade.
Of course now many people complain that it does not render in their favorite browser with their favorite font settings or that it is more difficult to navigate, because there are no longer hundreds of links on the frontpage.
I will wait at least a week before i will make up my own opinion of the new website but from first glance it does look nearly as good as the old one.

Failed IMAP Server upgrade

Today i tried to update my Mailserver from dovecot 0.99.x to 1.0alpha3. Unfortunately the update requires several changes to the config file. And after i modified my config file i noticed that the new version has a bug.

Oct  2 20:40:51 knut dovecot: imap-login: Login: user=, method=PLAIN, rip=, lip=, TLS
Oct  2 20:40:51 knut dovecot: imap(arved): file istream-raw-mbox.c: line 450 (istream_raw_mbox_get_body_size): assertion failed: (rstream->mail_size != (uoff_t)-1)
Oct  2 20:40:51 knut dovecot: child 98776 (imap) killed with signal 6

Luckily i had a backup and i am now happily running 0.99 again. Let’s see if someone on the dovecot Mailinglist can help me with this problem.
