0.10.4 - aka 1.0rc1 released

Siilihai 0.10.4 contains only small bugfixes here and there. If it works well, it'll be 1.0 next week. Last few releases have been working fine so regressions are not expected.

0.10.2 released

Again a bug-fixing release. The client seems to work pretty well now. I've noticed some oddities in unread message counters but that'll be fixed in next release. Please report any issues you find.

0.10.0 released

Siilihai 0.10.0 has been released. Main features:

- Got rid of SQLITE dependency as switched to simpler XML database. Starting and quitting is now much faster.
- Authentication dialogs work now much smarter when there are several forums needing authentication (for example when syncing for first time).
- Forums download their parsers ASAP, meaning shorter start time. I've got more speedups in mind but currently startup seems to be quite fast.
- Many clean-ups and bug fixes not visible to the user.

0.10.0 is still beta quality - there will be bugs and they will be fixed. Report any you found to e-mail address found below.

Next release coming soon

I'm working on the next major release, 0.10.0. I have got rid of the SQLITE database and replaced it with XML files. This is much simpler and faster. Also there will be a lot of architecture changes which are not visible for user.

I had to delete last release from Launchpad, as the source package contained some extra build files not needed. Unfortunately Launchpad also deleted the binaries so currently the PPA is not working. I'll upload 0.10.0 as soon as it is stable enough. If you really, really need last 0.9.24, let me know and I'll see if i can upload it.

More info on 0.10.0 as soon as I finish it.
