NewStuffManager 0.2.1 released

Wow! I’m quite in a rush lately. So there’s is again a new version that includes the following changes:

  • The author element will now be stored directly in an serializable dictionary
  • Changed directory structure. new-stuff-manager sources moved to src/
  • Added: Create $(datadir)/new-stuff-manager/specs on install
  • Removed cachedir variable, changed the way how directories are expanded and added configuration summary
  • Supplying a a plugin id that isn’t in the repository doesn’t throw an exception anymore. Instead, it’s just ignored
  • Installation is aborted, if checksum or signature is invalid
  • Added API documentation

You can download it at In addition, I wrote a little shell script to make it easier to patch Deskbar-Applet. All you need is git and svn installed. Then just execute the script and it will download the neccesary stuff and patch Deskbar-Applet for you.
