the new version 3.0. 2004-12-31: Back from Madagascar
I am back from a Christmas holiday in Madagascar.
I didn't see any catta lemurs
this time, but a few other species. The catta lemur has been extinct in the western region around Tulear (Toliara), one of the places I saw them 20 years ago.
And sadly enough, all the rain forest on the 100 km stretch from Moramanga to Brickaville between Antananarivo and Tamatave (Toamasina) has also been wiped out because of the local population's feu de brousse
as it is called in French, the slash-and-burn technique used to clear land for agriculture. Before: Thick, impenetrable forest. Today: Open hills with some fields and scattered trees.
The Asian tsunami also hit Madagascar last Sunday. According to the local press, some thousands villagers on the southern part of the east coast lost their homes, but nobody was killed apparently.2004-09-20: cattaDoc with user permission control
A new version 2.0 of cattaDoc with control of user permissions (advanced security) is released. With permission control, each object in cattaDoc has an Access Control List (ACL) specifying permissions for that particular object. Read more about the concepts in permission control
and how permission control manifests itself in practice
