I know, it's been quiet here. Real life has been taking priority. But I've been working slowly on a few things:
The internal database logic is being refactored to make it less weedy and messy.
This will in turn allow a rewrite of the installer, something I've been trying to do forever.
In the same vein, an export system for themes, so they can be exported (and soon imported) as .zip packages. This will make it easier to freshen up the default theme in the repository, minimal as it is.
I'm also abandoning the current interactive queue runner, or at least deprecating it, in favor of an out-of-process queue runner. Preliminary tests so far are promising. It's far more manageable than something that requires constant end-user babysitting to be useful.
A bunch of little fixups here and there as I went along.
