Fri Jun 1 23:15:57 UTC 2007 - adesklets forum now closed... and archived.

adesklets had a phpBB forum for more than two years and a half, and it served us well. Unfortunately, we experienced heavy spamming in the last couple of months, and had to close the automated registration: this somewhat defeated the whole point of such a public space where people can casually log in and submit questions or comments. We also had the bad luck to hit some data corruption some time ago, and the database was left in a state where the forum engine could not operate without hampering the original content.

Therefore, we produced a static, phpBB-independent version of the forum content, and put it online in place of the original forum. All external links to the forum content should also be redirected correctly (the dumper script, dump_phpbb.py, can be found in the code repository).

We still want to have some public place where users can give and receive feedback, but do not have definitive plan right now... It might be another phpBB forums installation (when phpBB 3.0 gets out?), or a adesklets-user mailing list... Feel free the share your thoughts with the maintainer.

Tue May 22 07:22:06 UTC 2007 - New code repository at repo.or.cz

adesklets development code repository has moved, and is now hosted on a wonderful dedicated server in the Czech Republic, thanks to the work and effort of Petr Baudis.

This comes with added functionality (for the maintainer!), and hopefully better reliability (for everyone else!).

Sun Oct 15 21:50:35 UTC 2006 - The desklets graveyard

For many good reasons, it happens that developers stop maintaining their desklets. Thanks to a stable API, most desklets that did work fine once will keep working fine for a long time. Unfortunately, it is not always the case (basically because the rest of the universe is not frozen), and desklets that would need some care are left behind. That's why the desklet graveyard has just been opened: so we can isolate the desklets that keep working fine from those that don't.
