  • upscayl

    🆙 Upscayl - #1 Free and Open Source AI Image Upscaler for Linux, MacOS and Windows.

  • Windows has caused us a lot of issues with Upscayl (https://upscayl.org).

    I personally do not use Windows but most of our errors are reported by Windows users where sometimes path parsing is a problem or the drivers mess up vulkan configuration.

  • MS-DOS

    Discontinued The original sources of MS-DOS 1.25 and 2.0, for reference purposes

  • Caddy

    Fast and extensible multi-platform HTTP/1-2-3 web server with automatic HTTPS

  • No, look at the associated unit test: https://github.com/caddyserver/caddy/blob/c6eb186064091c79f4...

    If that test fails we could serve PHP source code instead of having it be evaluated, a major security flaw.

  • rust

    Empowering everyone to build reliable and efficient software.

  • Here's an example of someone citing a disagreement between CRT and shell32:

    This in addition to the Rust CVE mentioned elsewhere in the thread which was rooted in this issue:

    https://blog.rust-lang.org/2024/04/09/cve-2024-24576.html

    Here are some quick programs to test contrasting approaches. I don't have examples of inputs where they parse differently on hand right now, but I know they exist. This was also a problem that was frequently discussed internally when I worked at MSFT.
