While it's still beta, I'm getting closer to a stable 1.0.0 release, which is my goal before adding any big new features. I hope to have 0-2 more beta releases followed by 1-2 release candidates before declaring a "stable" release. (On general principle, my plan is to have the stable release be identical to the last release candidate.)
We're fast approaching November 30, which will be the 10-year anniversary of the codebase, and the 1-year anniversary of the public release of the code. I'd love to be able to release 1.0.0 on that date, but I'll have to hurry if I want to do that. (It would also require releases almost daily...) Maybe it's too late to make that deadline, but I can try.
For the most part, the autoconf/automake integration is done. I still need to make a few little adjustments, but it's coming along nicely. I released 1.0.0.beta.6 early yesterday morning (late Wednesday night) with the autoconf support, and early this morning (late last night), I released 1.0.0.beta.7 to clean up GCC-specific options, and to automatically use -DFD_SETSIZE=256 on Cygwin.
I still need to work on an RPM spec file, so I can distribute an RPM of the server for easy installation. Maybe I'll look into other binary packaging possibilities, but I'm not sure how far I want to go in that direction...
I'm still looking for beta sites, so if anyone is interested in running one, please email me!
