ChangeLog

Version 0.9.0 - May 1st 2010

TODO

List of things I would like to complete before making the code public. Since there are only low priority stuff left, even if I'm not done, I'll make the code public on May 30th 2010. I'll release the code sooner if I manage to go through my list before that date.

High

  • I'm done with the high priority stuff! :-)

Low

  • Translation support; gettext.
  • Go through the all the code to add comments and improve consistency if needed.
  • Use GNU Autotools instead of just GNU make to clean hardcoded/error-prone current packaging routines.
