Mailing List for new versions?
« on: June 20, 2003, 07:00:17 am »

I don't think I've ever heard of or been able to sign up for a mailing list for new versions of UQM. Is there one I've missed?

If not, is the development team or someone else willing to make one?

I believe when a new file release is posted on sourceforge, one of the options is to send out a mass email to interested parties.  I'm assuming whomever posts file releases follows such a procedure.  As for how to get on that list, dunno, poke around on the uqm sourceforge page and look for such a link (you'll probably have to log in).

err not quite.  This is for changes to CVS.  Like if one person make one change in one file, it'll send you an email.  What I was looking for, abeit in the most half-assed way possible, was a way to receive updates when a minor or major file release is made.  For UQM, that means 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, etc.  I'm going to appologize in advance for not looking this up further today

Uh, you could bookmark this website or PNF.... when 0.3 or future versions come out, it'll definitely be pasted all over the news pages on both sites  Wink   Tongue

There now is an sc2-announce mailing list at http://sourceforge.net/mail/?group_id=59452 too.
It will be low-volume, and probably only the official uqm releases will be announced there.
Its main audience are people who don't visit our site (or PNF) regularly.
This is also the reason that remix previews will probably not be announced there.
Though if there's enough interest, maybe we could reconsider this, or maybe add an sc2-news list.

personally I'd be very happy just to see this one be a announcement for new releases only. I don't have much time for surfing and if this stays announcement only I can use my primary e-mail that I check more often.
