Wing Linux has a New Web Site!

So, yeah. We've got a new site!

For a while, we've been graciously using SourceForge's hosted app functionality for our web site. However, we've outgrown the capabilities of that service a bit and have switched over to a new web site engine. We're still hosted on SourceForge, but now we have our own Trac installation, which lets us do all sorts of neat things, like modify the way tickets work, change themes, add functionality to the wiki, plugins galore!

So check it out! All the old content has been moved over to the new site (including all the history), and if you've been using our main address, you'll go straight there.

For those who don't have it, you can get to us via

There's only one downside I can see so far to this transition -- no email notification of changes. However, that can be mitigated by RSS feed subscriptions. You can subscribe to three different feeds:

  • In the "Timeline" section, this feed will give you all site activity changes when they happen. This includes ticket changes, wiki updates, etc.
  • In the "View Tickets" section, this feed will give you updates whenever tickets are added or removed from a report.
  • Individual ticket changes can be subscribed to with their RSS feeds as well. If you submit a bug, this is a good feed to subscribe to so you can track the changes.

So, enjoy the new site, lemme know if something goes wrong. This site, unlike the other one, allows wiki edits by anyone registered (and registration is free and open to anyone, with or without a sourceforge account [please don't abuse it!]). So feel free to make updates and fix things if you see them.
