Awasu 3.1.1.alpha2 released

2017-12-11T09:49:37Z

Just a quick alpha release to tie up some loose ends from the rather extensive work done in the previous release. Nothing earth-shattering to report, just more of the Awasu goodness we all know and love 🙂 , and the 3.1.1 beta will be hot on its heels in the new year…

If you don’t understand what it means, vi is a text editor for developers that is, while extremely powerful, notoriously difficult to learn and use, and :wq is what you have to type in to save your file and exit – ":" puts you into “command” mode, "w" writes the file out, and then "q" to quit.

This is, of course, not particularly intuitive and it’s a rite of passage for Linux newbies to get insanely frustrated trying to use Ctrl-C to exit the program, to no effect, to the point where the developer of a popular clone felt it would be worthwhile to show a hint about how to exit if the user presses Ctrl-C[1]Although even doing this doesn’t always help (image)
