About two months ago, I wrote about LottaNZB being sponsered by a helpful Debian developer and that it had been added to Debian’s NEW queue. When I checked my inbox a few moments ago, I found a bunch of messages I’ve been waiting for a long time. Version 0.4.0-1 of your package ‘lottanzb’ has just been uploaded to Debian. I’m not sure what the purpose of the NEW queue is but it doesn’t matter anymore. Starting today, Debian users should be able to install it by simply typing “sudo apt-get install lottanzb”, at least if the unstable repository is used. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this project and allowed us to get this far!
Some of you might know that the Feature Freeze for Ubuntu 9.04 (which is going to be a great release!) has already taken effect quite some time ago. Unfortunately, this means that LottaNZB won’t be part of Ubuntu 9.04′s repositories. The good news is that LottaNZB will automatically be imported as soon as Jaunty has been released, so Ubuntu Karmic Koala will definitely ship with LottaNZB.
LottaNZB’s development didn’t stand still in the past two months. We’ve implemented quite a few cool things we will probably present you in a future blog post. We don’t know yet when the next major version of LottaNZB is going to be released. If you know something cool that could be added to LottaNZB, don’t hesitate to create a blueprint on our Launchpad.net project page! You can also see there what we’ve planned for future releases.
Have a nice weekend!
