Hourglass gets a new Download package for Unstable


I've just created a new package in the Download section called hourglass-unstable, to be found under https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=74405&package_id=305484

I'll use it to upload untested versions for the ones who want to be at the edge of the technology and help with early testing; or get quickly a fix without having to compile yourself.

The releases will be named after the revision number in SVN, so that you can grab the code using a command like (the version being 0.7.3.alpha.36):... read more

Project code moved from CVS to SVN

Well, not much more to say than what's in the subject.

Just be aware that I didn't take the pain of migrating all the versions, but only the latest one (0.7.0, released yesterday). For this reason, the CVS access will remain for a little time, until I find out that nobody actually cares (including me, so it'll probably be until the next release).

I also definitely got read of the website and the docs modules, as everything is now kept "live" in the Wiki under http://hourglass.sf.net/... read more

Expect more to come soon; in the mean time, you can have a look at the newly setup Wiki http://hourglass.wiki.sourceforge.net/ where the Roadmap page should give some insights into my plans for the future.

Eager to hear from you,
