Release of Pacnanny 1.3

Today there’s a new release of Pacnanny, a wrapper for the pacman package manager (Arch Linux and derivatives). Pacnanny enforces good pacman discipline by, for example, by automatically fetching news before an update or by summarizing new pacsave and pacnew files at the end of an update. This terribly minor release simply updates the default method of displaying the news, which works by dumping it to stdout via w3m and then doing a bit of post-processing on it to make it easier to read and to cut out some unnecessary junk.

If you’re interested, you can check it out over at Github (yes, it’s one of my few remaining projects hosted there). It’s also available to install from the AUR.
