Python-RSA 4.5 & 4.6 released!

These new releases of Python-RSA come with two security fixes. Python-RSA v4.5 is the final release supporting Python 2, and v4.6 has all the new goodies but requires Python 3.5 or newer.

New Website

Today I launched my new website, with a new look and underlying tech, but all the old content.

Slovenia & Croatia spherical panorama pack in Blender Cloud

Last year we went on holiday to Slovenia & Croatia (mentioned here in chronological order of visiting) and made a set of 360°x180° panorama photos. They are available as high dynamic range EXR files on Blender Cloud.

Skyfill v1.1 released

Version v1.1 of Skyfill has been released. The most important improvement is that it now also supports full-white as fill colour for the sky.

Skyfill released!

Most drones (UAVs) cannot look straight up to photograph the sky above them. As a result, spherical panoramas made with drones tend to have a gap in the sky. Some drones, like my DJI Mavic 2, can fill in this gap automatically while generating a preview.

FFmpeg and DJI D-Log on the Mavic 2 Pro

To properly see a video recorded with a DJI Mavic 2 Pro in D-log colours, it needs conversion. This can be done with the cube file provided by DJI. Such cube files contain the lookup table (LUT) to turn the bland colours into proper ones when viewing with a run-of-the-mill viewer like MPlayer, VLC, Windows Media Player, etc.

Python-RSA 4.0 released!

After over two years of silence, Python-RSA 4.0 has been released! There are many improvements and also backward-incompatible changes (hence the increase of the major version number). Get it while it’s hot at the Python Package Index, or just install with pip install --upgrade rsa.

All mail is mine

While I’m doing web development I want to have an email server that ensures that all mail will end up in my mailbox. This is how I set up Postfix to do just that.

Python FlickrAPI 2.3 released
