git commit / darcs record
I’ve been working wit git lately but I have also missed the darcs user interface.

Warning: the screencast is eating all my RAM, so i can’t view it. I guess i can blame gecko for […]
There it is, we finally released the final 2.14 version of deskbar for the general audience ! Nigel made an excellent comment and a screencast (flash) (mirror) showcasing some current deskbar capabilities. I’m glad to see that the gnome community is loving it, and using it ! THANKS !
