We are long overdue on getting a bugfix release of 1.0.0 out, so I have uploaded an rc for testing at
Christoph and Russell – if you have time could you build win32 and OSX binaries for testing as well. I don’t believe either of you have developer permissions to upload directly to this site, but I would be happy to add you if you send me an sf id. Alternatively, you can upload them to a site of your choosing and I’ll upload them for you (drop.io was acquired by facebook and no longer works).
There are a number of bugs and patches on the tracker that it would have been nice to tackle before this release, but there have been enough improvements in the branch that delaying at this point would be a case of the perfect being the enemy of the good so I think we should move forward now. Nonetheless, if there are important bugs or patches that anyone can tackle before we cut the final release, that would be great.
In sf, we used to be able to tag a file as the preferred file for a given OS, but in the new file manager interface I no longer see a way to do this, so that for example the rc files don’t show up as the default download options. Does anyone know how to do this, or perhaps someone can suggest a drop.io replacement that supports multiple user uploaders (eg the different binary builders) and public, no-registration downloads. I googled a bit and didn’t find anything that fit the bill.
