So, as usual, it's a huge amount more work than I expected but Squib is finally getting to it's feet. In that regard I am highly indebted to Messrs Kirks and Fragen who have been testing the software and finding innumerable bugs, problems, and unexpected behaviours: beginning with the INSTALL instructions and proceeding from there ;-)
I had been expecting to release the software last weekend but Steve's experience showed me it was too early. There is a remote possibility of a release this weekend, but I won't do it until the installation process is a little smoother. Locomotive appears to show promise in this respect. Anyone interested in how we're doing is welcome to come chat in #squib (Freenode IRC).
