jigdo 0.7.0



Hello,

I just released a new version of jigdo. The most important news:

  - This is the first release of _binaries_ for the GTK+ jigdo GUI. 
    This graphical version of jigdo is fully functional WRT the download
    of *single* files via FTP/HTTP. It does *not* yet support
    the processing of .jigdo files. Still, now's the time to try it out
    and give me feedback about things which you'd still like to be
    changed!

  - jigdo-file now features a --match-exec switch, which can be used to
    specify a command to execute whenever a file matches during
    "jigdo-file make-template". This makes it much easier to create a
    fallback mirror - I'll probably come up with a patch for debian-cd
    which makes use of the feature.

The complete list of changes:

  - GUI: Code for guessing the user's proxy settings. On Unix, reads
    the configuration files of various browsers. On Windows, reads the
    MSIE registry entries.
  - GUI: Single downloads (e.g. of .iso files) work, can be paused and
    continued, stopped and resumed.
  - GUI: Work on processing of .jigdo files is begun, but far from
    completed
  - Changed heuristics for "jigdo-file make-template". As with all
    heuristics, may actually turn out to be worse than before for some
    cases. However, with experiments of mine with i386 Debian DVD
    images, it resulted in a significant size reduction of the
    template.
  - Fix for bug in "make-template" which caused invalid template files
    to be generated sometimes. Funny how these make-template bugs keep
    popping up, I've already fixed about 5 of them! :-7
  - jigdo-lite: Fix for problem with the "read" builtin with some
    shells, e.g. dash
  - Fixed build problem on newer GCC 3.2
  - Source code now exceeds 20000 lines of code in almost 100 files.

A link to the binary for the GTK+ GUI is hidden in the "Development"
section of the jigdo homepage, but I've also uploaded it to Debian
unstable.

Apt-able i386 .debs (no sources) are at:
