CcPublisher 2 Beta 2
ccPublisher 2 Beta 2
Monday, March 13, 2006
This is the first release of ccPublisher 2 which we believe to be generally usable. We have successfully uploaded photos and text to the Internet Archive using this build without any problems. There are undoubtedly bugs remaining and areas that need polish; your feedback will help track down those areas and provide suggestions.
This release includes "phone home" code to open an issue in the ccPublisher Tracker when a crash occurs. This new tracker is located at http://roundup.creativecommons.org/ccpublisher; all feature requests and bugs are tracked there. When a crash occurs, you are no longer prompted for your email address -- if you authorize ccPublisher to upload the crash information, you are provided with a link to the web page so you can follow progress. You can add yourself as a "nosy" account (and receive email when updated) or subscribe to the RSS feed of activity.
If you have suggestions, feature requests, or bug reports, you can file them in the tracker as well (http://roundup.creativecommons.org/ccpublisher).
If you wish to discuss development of ccPublisher, you can subscribe to the cc-devel mailing list.
- Linux (tar.gz): http://prdownload.berlios.de/cctools/ccPublisher-1.9.2.tar.gz
- Windows XP: http://prdownload.berlios.de/cctools/setup.exe
- Mac OS X: http://prdownload.berlios.de/cctools/ccPublisher.zip
- Windows: The download link above points to setup.exe; run that file and ccPublisher will be added to your start menu.
- Linux: The download link above points to a source tarball, which includes most of what you need. You will also need wxPython 2.6 (Unicode build) and elementtree. Once you have those two dependencies installed, untar the download and run main.py. The final release of ccPublisher 2 (at latest) will be packaged as an RPM (at least).
- Mac OS X: The download link above points to a zip file. Double click the file to unzip it; it contains a single item, the application. Note that this build was created with Mac OS X 10.4.5; it should work with all versions of 10.4, and possibly 10.3. If you have problems running with 10.3 and are willing to get your hands dirty building the code, please open a bug. Mac OS X 10.2 and earlier are not supported.
