We're approaching 0.3.6

With this weekend's and this morning's pushes to the development branch -- implementing a way to prevent Neubot from running tests and fixing sparse bugs in the web user interface -- we have now a critical mass of changes that it's worth releasing. The only missing bit is the X axis labels of the recent results page, but I am confident I can fix that today.

Pushed many patches to neubot-next

In the last three days I have pushed many experimental patches to the next branch of Neubot at GitHub. The most relevant improvements are: a revamped Web User Interface (WUI) backend, that now use JSON, leading to simpler and more readable code; and bits of code to background the TCP bulk transfer test and the BitTorrent test.

Repackaged 0.3.5

Yesterday night, by mistake, I packaged with 0.3.5 some bits of code that are not compatible with the javascripts in that release, and the result is that the web interface was not working properly. Therefore, if you downloaded Neubot yesterday night and your web interface does not work very well, please download it again: I have just recreated the packages for Neubot 0.3.5. While on that, I have also applied a little patch to avoid startup issues with Windows 7. Thank you, and sorry.

Updated win32 build instructions

I have updated win32 build instructions. I have added instructions to install Python Win32 extensions, now required by Neubot on Windows. And I have removed a stale remark regarding the need to publish instructions on how to build exe files below win32. Now these files are gone, due to false positive malware allegation, so we don't need to publish such instructions anymore.

Pushed some patches to the next branch

I have pushed to the next branch patches to: (i) complete the removal of the .exe files in win32; (ii) use NT EventLog handler, for logs to end up somewhere under Windows; (iii) add JSON support and fallback to simplejson when json is not available (e.g. Python 2.5); (iv) cleanup and improve the logging infrastructure.

Submitted article to IEEE ISCC 2011

Last week I have been busy because I was preparing a submission for the IEEE symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC) 2011 and I had very few time to work at Neubot. This week I will restart the development, testing, and release process. Stay tuned.
