Legacy web pages of Axel Beckert

Since I'm no more active at the Fachschaftsrat Informatik of the University of Saarland anymore, I have transferred all my university time legacy web pages from http://fsinfo.cs.uni-sb.de/~abe/ to this interim host at http://fsinfo.noone.org/~abe/ with only minimal modifications, mainly e-mail addresses.

Most pages on this interim host won't be updated anymore until they are moved (and redirected) step by step to their future home somewhere under http://noone.org/.

Please also note that my former e-mail address abe@fsinfo.cs.uni-sb.de is no more valid. Use abe@deuxchevaux.org instead.

You'll find more screen shots on the screen shots page.



wApua 0.06.3 is out. It fixes recognition of WML pages on some WAP WML sites without DOCTYPE or XML preamble.
Additionally there's now a mirror of wApua's Git repository on GitHub. Feel free to report bugs or to file pull requests there.
wApua 0.06.2 is out. It's a maintenance release fixing some deprecation warnings with more recent Perl versions.
Additionally, from now on, releases are digitally signed with my GnuPG key 0x2FF9CD59612616B5.
wApua 0.06.1 is out. It's a maintenance release fixing some POD issues, updating some of the links on the internal pages as well as some slight code refactoring.
The wApua source code is now available on http://git.noone.org/?p=wapua.git.
wApua is available in Debian Etch (which is currently in the Testing stage).
wApua is available in Debian Unstable aka Sid.
wApua 0.06 is out. Besides documentation and man pages, there are Many small bugfixes and usability enhancements since 0.05 and 0.05.1. For the first time, there's also a Debian package of wApua available. The package should work fine on Debian Woody (3.0), Sarge (3.1) and Etch (upcoming 4.0) and probably also works on other Debian-based distributions like Ubuntu.
Compatibility bugfix release wApua 0.05.1 dev is out. It mainly fixes the use with Tk 804.027 and above so it should run again on e.g. Ubuntu. It also fixes the local installation documentation.
wApua 0.05 dev is out.
There are compilation problems with wApua 0.04 when using Perl versions lesser than 5.006: Comment out the line
use warnings;
with '#' in bin/wApua and everything should be fine.
wApua 0.04 dev is out.
wApua 0.03 dev is out.
Due to some bug in our ftpd, the original tar-ball of wApua 0.02dev contained the source code of wApua.pl version 0.01dev and version 0.02dev concatenated together. The tar-ball is now fixed. Sorry for any problems because of this. (The bad gzipped tar-ball had 29kB, the good one has 20 kB.)

The wApua source code, the wApua web and the wApua WAP pages were all written with GNU Emacs.
The wApua logos were made with The GIMP (PNG and JPEG only; there are no GIFs) and ImageMagick (WBMP).
