GNU Xnee 3.14 (‘Lord Pi’) released

We are pleased to announce the availability of GNU Xnee 3.14

About calling the release “Lord Pi”

We’re still following the tradition to pay tribute to old heroes who have passed away. A while ago Jon Lord (Deep Purple among other bands) passed away. Even though Deep Purple never was one of my favorite bands, they and Jon still had an impact in my life. Listen to Stormbringer, Perfect stranger and Machine head and you’ll know why. Jon’s keyboard playing is a vital part of the Deep Purple sound. That explains the “Lord” part of “Lord Pi”. The “Pi” part is of course due to the version number “3.14”, which is the three first digits of Pi.
