GNOME seti applet / News: Recent posts

First RPM for Redhat 8.0 released - please try it out

I have managed to finally get around to updating the RPM spec file to work with Redhat 8.0 (Gnome 2.0) and have synced up the 2.1 series with 2.1.3.

Please try it out if you can and report any problems to the seti-applet sourceforge bug tracker.

Please check it out - it is an alpha release, but it works and has no crasher bugs that I know about :)

Everyone who can, please see if you can get the applet code in CVS to work with your installation of the GNOME 2.0 desktop. The branch to check out is UNSTABLE_BRANCH_1_9

The latest version contains major code cleanups, and will introduce new features such as skins and sound.

Coming soon...

Work has not stalled on the seti-applet, simply pre-empted by life! I think the 'development' release has been brewing long enough now, within the next week or so there should be a new stable (0.4.0) which will fix all the bugs I can think of for now (no bug reports have come in for many many moons). Coming within a couple of weeks of this will be the next unstable release (0.5.0) which should have all sorts of cool features (including the pending feature requests) along with a nice new more flexible architecture which should greatly simplify feature additions in the future.

New release - PLEASE UPGRADE!

A new - less leaky - seti_applet is now available. I implore you to:
1)Upgrade immediately to 0.3.3 and jump up and down on all copies of 0.3.2 (before it squashes you!)
2)NEVER EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE WHATSOEVER (not that bad, really!) run 0.3.2 with the option '-verbose' without opening the console window. IT WILL EVENTUALLY CRASH YOUR COMPUTER - it trashed my 384 meg machine after allocating ~1gig of memory over 6 hours.... read more
