Kelp launches new Mercurial public repo.

In order to support contributions from anyone to our source code, we have instantiated a static-http only access Mercurial repository.
The core Kelp source code can be found at http://kelp.sf.net/hg/kelphg.tar.gz
It is a mirror of our latest SVN source code repositrory (Kelp 1.3)
Whenever a new release of Kelp is ready, we will update the Mercurial repository.
For the moment, the main line development will continue on the SVN repository until such time as we will feel confident about switching completely to Mercurial.
But the current repo should allow anyone to submit Mercurial style patches for integration, or just allow anyone to fork confidently from us.... read more

Kelp 0.9 will be released tonight, so make sure to check it out!
And please remember we are updating our Tutorial daily so please do submit your comments!

Website revamped, Part 2

Our website is now using PHP to serve XHTML1.1 pages.
Each page has a link to the W3C Validator for XHTML1.1.

Usage of PHP is for now limited to make the website easier to edit, since it is made using Vim over an SSH connection.

Have fun browsing our site, and don't forget to check out our tutorial and submit your comments!

Cheers,
Filippo
