I’ve finally made the switch from compiling e17 from the SVN repository to using the PPA so generously generated by Luis Felipe Strano Moraes. From this point onwards I will only develop eplanet against the latest release, be it alpha, beta or full release.
To that end I now have to report that eplanet doesn’t work with the latest such release (0.17.0-alpha7). The basics are there but the configuration dialog is completely up the wazoo when it comes to entering text.
Hopefully I get to sorting this out at the weekend, but the needs of Christmas carols may get in the way.
