Whats New

This page lists some (hopefully most) of the new features introduced since the 0.17 release. Once 0.18 is deemed stable, and Whats New is complete and up to date, a final copy will be made on the ReleaseNotes page, at 0.18, and this page will be cleared to accumulate the CVS changes leading up to 0.19.

Very roughly, this is a running log of commits to CVS; if you see something on this page that you can't live without, setting up to grab and compile CVS releases is the way to get it. If you don't know much about CVS, but would like to learn, the entire text of Open Source Development with CVS is available (under the GPL) here.

[ Please understand: if you compile and use CVS, you're venturing into the waters of Alpha Test; be prepared to behave accordingly. ]

The only changes that should be made to this page are for features that are in 0.18, but are not listed here. Make such changes here, and the 0.18 release notes page will be periodically refreshed.

New Features and Fixes for 0.18

Please note. This is only a temp page to load .18 features from cvs and to hold them until .18 is near ready. (This weekend hopefully) I am adding entries from the cvs for everyday then plan on going back in and reformatting and removing duplicates etc. Any help is appreciated.
