Announcing dmedia 0.7 "delegate"

I'm happy to announce the 7th release of the Distributed Media Library (aka "dmedia"). At this point dmedia is really just for developers and highly adventurous end-users, but the design and implementation are both progressing quickly.

You can download the source tarball here: dmedia-0.7.0.tar.gz

Packages are available for Ubuntu Natty in the Novacut Stable Releases PPA.

What's new in dmedia 0.7

This was a slow month as I was in Budapest for two weeks for the Ubuntu Developer Summit and a bit of vacation.

The only new feature is I added the TransferManager for dispatching and managing uploads and downloads. And Bilal Akhtar reworked the Debian packaging to split dmedia into simpler components, although that's only in the official packaging, hasn't yet made is way into the internal packaging that I use for daily builds and monthly releases.

For details, see bugs fixed in the dmedia 0.7 milestone.

Special thanks

Contribute to 0.8 and beyond!

We do monthly time-based releases, always releasing on the last Thursday of the month. That means we promise to make a release on time each month, but never promise what exact features will land.

dmedia 0.8 will be released on Thursday June 30 2011, and development is already underway. To see what's in store for the next release, checkout dmedia 0.8 milestone.

That's all, folks!

Thanks to everyone who is helping make this dream a reality!
