If you’re reading this there’re only two possible explanations:
- You know what “Cayapa” means and want to be involved in it.
- You Want to know what “Cayapa” means and what does it have to do with the development of Turpial 2.0.
So, here it goes, I’ll try to be as clear as possible so that our venezuelan lingo can come across to anyone who’s never set foot in this beautyful land filled with beautiful women (Sorry guys, they’re all mine)
Cayapa: noun. & verb. [Kah-ya'll-pah] (Meh, close enough) In lame terms: The action of beating the crap out of one S.o.B. This is not done by one subject to another but is a group efford against the one until he’s pretty much left for dead. (Very invinting isn’t).
i.e: We were cayaping that MoFo for using my external HD to save his reggaeton “music” *spits on the carcas*
Now, Who wants to be a part of the beating???
How does it apply to Turpial development? you ask, fairly simple, We are the Cayapators [Terminator style] and the requirements for a good Alpha 2.0 is the MoFo whom defiled your HD: It needs to be set straight.
To better understand this term, think of it as a Bug Squash Party in Techno Language. And before you ask, NO! this word will not change and we will cayapa you if you, so much as, suggest we change it.
This next sunday, february 12th, Turpial development team we’ll be discusing everything related to Turpia 2.0 and its Alpha v. if you’d like to be a part of this discussion head over to:
Server: Freenode (irc.freenode.net)
at 09.00 am VE / 10.30 am AR
(VE UTC -4:30 / AR UTC -3:00)
And join the beating…
With the last stable release (v1.6.9), Turpial has been accepted as official package in the community Arch Linux repository. Now if you want to install the stable release in Arch Linux just execute:
# pacman -S turpial
Thanks to our friends Miguel Ángel Useche who was the maintainer of AUR package and Angel Velásquez who uploaded Turpial to community repository and is the current maintainer of the official package.
Our friend Andrea Stagi has added support for the github.com shorting URL service, git.io, completing for a total of 27 supported services.
This services are availables just in the development version for the moment but we are planning to release a public alpha version in the next weeks so everybody can start test the new features.

After several weeks of hard work the new documentation for the installation process of the current development version of Turpial has been updated.

Finally, Turpial 1.6.6 is HERE with new features and more, but if you’re in Development Branch and check this blog often you realize that said branch is going to be a mess for a little while (Explaination HERE), so you might want to stay on the safe side and install the Stable Bird.
“How can I do such a wonderful and complicated thing?” you’ll ask (if you are a Linux ignorant such as myself).
Well, our friend LordValor made us a huge favor setting an Easy Tutorial (it’s so simple even I can do it, no joke).
Althou it’s in spanish, if you follow the Terminal instructions starting with:
$ cd turpial/
you’re going to be just fine and have Turpial 1.6.6 running in under a minute (like my dates when the bill hits the restaurant table).
Just go to his Post: Turpial 1.6.6 is now Stable and do your thing.
Thanks, LordValor, pay his blog a visit it’s full of interesting Stuff and S#!7 … If you know spanish, that is.
"If you know spanish..."
