The release focus was to improve pyNeighborhood functionality and to make the GUI more usable. Group browsing using msbrowse, an IP address validation mechanism in the add/edit dialog, and optional automatic IP calculation on the adding machine were added. Many interface improvements were made, such as the ability to change user and password selection, proper popup menu entries, and a status bar and progress bar displaying application status.
This release significantly improves pyNeighborhood
functionality. It features CIFS support, a group
browser, a new preferences dialog, and a lot of
GUI improvements, such as popup menus. The mounts
monitor was also improved, so now it distinguishes
resources mounted as CIFS and as SMBFS and is able
to operate on them.
This release was made to improve stability and add some icons. A native pyNeighborhood icon was created. Code cleanup was performed; most non-useful debugging messages were removed. There are some inner stability improvements, including improved threads usage (the program will no longer hang on file manager launch, for example).
The main purpose of this release is to add some necessary features included in LinNeighborhood and missing in pyNeighborhood. Though there is no group browser yet, it already has a bookmarks mechanism and mounts monitor. A significant decision about interface design was made: now PyNeighborhood provides a tab-based interface. A lot of bugs were fixed, including a major bug with simultaneous share scans.
