In my previous post, I described the pipeline library from man-db and asked whether people were interested in a standalone release of it. Several people expressed interest, and so I’ve now released libpipeline version 1.0.0. It’s in the Debian NEW queue, and my PPA contains packages of it for Ubuntu lucid and maverick.

I gave a lightning talk on this at UDS in Orlando, and my slides are available. I hope there’ll be a video at some point which I can link to.

Thanks to Scott James Remnant for code review (some time back), Ian Jackson for an extensive design review, and Kees Cook and Matthias Klose for helpful conversations.
