gURLChecker download
hi all,

Because of recent savannah troubles people can not download anymore fromthere (this functionnality will be restored on january 2004).

For the moment you can download gURLChecker files on

labs.libre-entreprise.... (labs.libre-entreprise....)

however, no new release since last stable 0.6.3. I am currently working on project management for next unstable 0.7.4... a lot of work to implement this functionnality :-)
