New packages in Debian 7.0 Wheezy

Given that Debian 7.0 Wheezy will be released in a few hours, I thought it would be a good time to take part in Michael Prokop's #newinwheezy effort to publicise the new packages that have uploaded to Debian as part of Wheezy. I have introduced two new packages to Debian for this release:

  • nyancat - nyancat is a program to display an animated poptart cat in your terminal
  • transmission-remote-cli - ncurses interface for the Transmission BitTorrent daemon

I've also have become (co-)maintainer of the following packages, updating them for this release:

  • dhex - ncurses based hex editor with diff mode
  • figlet - Make large character ASCII banners out of ordinary text
  • lcd4linux - Grabs information and displays it on an external lcd
  • libconfig - Parsing and manipulation of structured configuration files
  • wavemon - Wireless Device Monitoring Application

I hope you find them useful. Enjoy!

  1. A new post! I had thought that your new work had caused you to throw the blog under the bus. Does the inclusion of a package like nyancat say all that is good (and perhaps bad) about Linux distros!

    • Micko! Haven't abandoned it, just busy recently. I thought nyancat would be a good package to have in order to provide some comic relief to tired and weary sysadmins! Jon
