Pastebinit 1.2 released !

So, 10 months after the last release, I’m proud to announce that release 1.2 of the command line pastebin client is out !

For these who just want to grab the branch or tarballs, that’s on Launchpad:

For Natty users, you’ll just have to wait for pastebinit to hit Debian and then be synced, shouldn’t take long.

Here’s a quick overview of the new features:

  • Size limit support
  • Distro-specific default pastebin
  • Pastebinit now respects the FHS
  • Quick a few more supported pastebins (see list below)
  • A LOT of bugfix (over 20 bugs fixed, remaining bugs are mostly wishlist)
  • Updated manpage
  • Test scripts to quickly check that all pastebins work
  • Updated translations (28 supported locales)

Here’s the list of currently supported pastebins:

stgraber@castiana:~/data/code/pastebinit$ ./pastebinit -l
Supported pastebins:

Pastebinit automatic testing
Yay for automated testing !

    Hi Stéphane,

    great software, thanks to you and your guys for putting it together. Altough is just a very small community driven site we have started to use your program on a daily basis to send pastes to our little pastebin. I guess I can start making an english version website now as we are getting more popular thanks to being on your list ;). Thanks and keep up the good work!

    Happy coding,

    make install
    would be nice for n00bs like me 🙁

    1. Well, pastebinit doesn’t need to be compiled or installed in a specific location, therefore “make”, “make install” aren’t relevant there.

    Thank you, I find this tool simple, fairly elegant and most of all very useful. Keep it up!
