RELEASED: emc 2.3.4

I'm pleased to announce the next bugfix release in the emc 2.3 series, emc 2.3.4. A number of problems with the last release have been fixed.

The new packages are now available for Ubuntu 8.04 "Hardy Heron" in the package repositories. Packages for Ubuntu 6.06 "Dapper Drake" should follow within the next few days. If you have already installed an earlier 2.3.x version of emc, this will be offered as an update.

If you still have 2.2.8 or earlier installed, 2.3.4 will not be available as an automatic upgrade. For more information and installation/upgrade instructions, please see

git users can get this release by checking out the v2.3.4 tag (or follow bugfixes on v2_3_branch). Source tarballs are available from the package repository:

Many thanks to the people who have contributed bugfixes for this release.

Changes since 2.3.3:

The version number of the package is actually 2.3.4-1. The original 2.3.4 package, which was only available for a few minutes, had an error which caused it to require additional Python-related packages be installed.

It looks like I missed posting about the 2.3.3 release, so for good measure here are the changes from 2.3.2 to 2.3.3: Changes since 2.3.2:
