  1. I can probably do that, too, though I'm not entirely sure where the relevant files are. I'll have a look when I get back from work.
  2. It looks a lot like Liberation Sans to me.
  3. The method I use (and I believe several others do, too) is to replace the CKAN/downloads directory with a link to a directory on large slow storage, so my downloads aren't using up my SSD. When accessing the cache, CKAN happily traverses filesystem links.
  4. A lot of CKAN users have multiple copies of KSP at different versions, and share the CKAN downloads folder across them. Automatically removing cached downloads would be detrimental for that use-case, and kind of goes against the point of having a download cache to some extent. If you have space issues, you can delete individual files directly from the cache directory. or use the "clear cache" tool in CKAN to remove them all. The cached files are not used by KSP at all; it just saves you waiting on downloads which might timeout if you want to reinstall the mods. I could see the benefit of a "keep only the latest version" cache option, though.
  5. CKAN Release v1.25.1 "Broglio" is released! Changes since 1.25.0 Features [GUI] Replace empty max KSP version string with "any" (#2420 by: DasSkellet; reviewed: HebaruSan, politas) Bugfixes [GUI] Splitter and tabstrip visual improvements (#2413 by: HebaruSan; reviewed: politas) [GUI] Fix "Collection was modified" exception for redundant optional dependencies (#2423 by: HebaruSan; reviewed: politas) [core] Treat installed DLC as compatible dependency (#2424 by: HebaruSan; reviewed: politas) [GUI] Ignore splitter exceptions (#2426 by: HebaruSan; reviewed: politas) Internal [Build] Add more tests (#2410 by: HebaruSan, DasSkelett; reviewed: politas) [Updater] AutoUpdate: tokens and tests (#2411 by: HebaruSan; reviewed: politas) Notes The auto-update function in previous releases may fail trying to upgrade to this version. In that case, you will need to download it manually and replace your previous copy. You don't need to download AutoUpdate.exe. This is used internally by CKAN when a new version is released. Windows users must have .NET 4.5 installed. SImply download the ckan.exe file and either store it in your game directory or somewhere in your filesystem that you have non-admin write access. Never run the CKAN client as Administrator! libcurl is no longer used by CKAN for Linux or Mac. If you experience problems downloading, please contact us Mac/Linux/Mono users: please use the new cert-sync tool, to update mono's certificate store. Mac Users: You should only need to download and install the CKAN.dmg The .deb file is for automated installation on Debian-based Linux distributions - Use dpkg-install/apt-get/apt to install the .deb file and you will then be able to run CKAN with just ckan instead of mono ckan.exe. All required libraries should be pulled in as dependencies. This release of the CKAN has not been tested on Mono releases prior to 5.0.1. We highly recommend upgrading to the latest stable release of Mono from mono-project.com You will need the equivalent of the mono-complete package for your OS. News and appreciations Splitters have been resized and more sensible minimum sizes set. Mods depending on Making History DLC will now actually show up as available when it is present. @DasSkelett and @HebaruSan continue adding valuable code to the project, please give them some love! In the metadata side @linuxgurugamer is still making updates faster than I can keep up with! As always, we love contributions in any form: issues, code, metadata updates, even friendly discussions and polite references on the forums!
  6. It's looking for the file GameData/SquadExpansion/MakingHistory/readme.txt. Do you have that file in that location? An issue on GitHub is the ideal place for such reports.

    CKAN Mod not displaying as compatible

    Ok this PR gets the most recent release back as the latest release in CKAN, and also forces that release to have KSP compatibility 1.40 - 1.4.2. Let us know if you add a .version file to your package, and we'll change things to use that for compatibility.

    CKAN Mod not displaying as compatible

    Ah, we do not treat Spacedock versions as compatible "up to" the listed version. We treat it as compatible "with" that version. KSP does not guarantee backwards compatibility for mods. So Fuelwings-3.2e is compatible only with KSP 1.4.2. In order to have a Spacedock-hosted mod compatible with a range of KSP versions, we need some more information than Spacedock allows for. The most effective way to do that is to include an AVC .version file specifying the range of compatible KSP versions for a given release.. There is also the problem that FuelWings-3.2e is not coming up as the most recent version, thanks to your FuelWings-FuelWings_v3.2d release. "F" is greater than "3" in version numbering rules, so it is the latest release. That last bit I can fix fairly easily.

    I'll have a look

News and appreciations With this release we're adding support for the Making History DLC, mostly thanks to @Olympic1. Mods can include Making History as a dependency or any other relationship type, and we allow files to be installed in the Missions folder, so mods can include custom missions. @HebaruSancontinues to be a powerhouse of coding talent as well as a very active metadata editor. You've all seen his regular contributions in the thread here, I'm sure! New contributor DasSkelett has been doing some great work with small improvements to the GUI! huge thanks to everyone who has posted an issue at https://github.com/KSP-CKAN/CKAN/issues, they really do help us to make the CKAN better for everyone!
  11. That's coming in the next release!
  12. That does seem odd. What does the Window title bar say?
  13. Ah, damn! I may have messed up the CKAN releases page. If y'all get a "new update" come through, it should have a few minor fixes. Right now, I've got to head off to work.
  14. You're quite right, I missed that note when I updated the OP. Fixed now! Thanks for pointing it out!
