new debian package
Please try out the pagecast_2.0beta3 debian package... the earlier debian package was unusable for anyone other than me. This fixes that problem and a few other smaller ones.
Please test the Beta releases!
The 2.0 Beta releases are availible at the links above. If you are a Pagecast user (or want to download it) PLEASE download the beta and test it out and SEND BUG REPORTS so I can get a nice, stable 2.0 release out there.
Anyway, I'd be surprised if half of the servers in the 1.1.1 version worked, as the sites tend to change their HTML on a regular basis.
Beyond the 2.0 release, I've got no major plans for the program besides bug fixes and things like documentation and language file updates, and of course, keeping the server defintions current.
2.0 alpha series now availible
There is a new series of alpha releases availible in preparation for Pagecast 2.0. Go to the Pagecast homepage listed above to download them. They are NOT for casual users but people who are interested in the development of Pagecast are asked to try them out. There are many new features including finer grained control over servers & threads, modular servers, full HTTP proxy support (and more robust networking in general) and SMTP support.
Some users are reporting problems with Pagecast and other Python software when they are running both the newest Python 1.5.2 *and* the Linux Kernel version 2.0.x.
The solution pending further debugging is to either upgrade to Linux 2.2.x or downgrade Python to 1.5.1.
