Georges Painvin was a French cryptanalyst during WW1. He broke the ADFGVX cipher in June 1918, which was "military grade encryption" back then.
He died in 1980. He lived long enough to see TCP/IP and DES.
Mind boggling... https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Georges_Painvin

It's called #ghReleaseChecker and can be called interactively or from a cron job; it will display if a new version has been released since the last invocation.
The output format can be slightly customized (or JSON-formatted) to integrate with scripts or whatever.
Let me know if you find it useful! :-)
#madonctl 2.3.1 is out
The changelog won't fit in 500 characters, but here's a short list of changes:

Here's a fun TIL: Because the ratio of terms in the Fibonacci sequence approaches phi, and because phi is close to the ratio of km to miles, you can approximate conversion between distances with adjacent Fibonacci numbers.
So 2 km ≈ 1 mile, 3 km ≈ 2 miles, 5 km ≈ 3 miles, 8 km ≈ 5 miles, 13 km ≈ 8 miles, etc, etc
