Hi all,

I would like to announce the release of Boxi 0.0.5, a graphical user 
interface (GUI) for configuring Box Backup clients.

Many thanks to Richard Eigenmann for his suggestions, many of which are 
incorporated into this version, and most of the remainder are now on my 
TODO list.

Changes in this version:

* Separated configuration settings into Basic and Advanced, to be less
   intimidating for new users and to fit more easily into the available
   screen space.

* Allow navigating into directories by double-clicking files in the server
   file list (similar to Windows Explorer behaviour).

* Allow sorting the file list by filename, size or date, in forward or
   reverse order. Replaced the ``Flags'' column by ``Last Modified'' date,
   which is more useful.

* Redraw the GUI during directory restore operations, showing progress in
   the status bar (current file and number of files restored).

* Changed most error message dialogs to have more politically-correct
   titles (Boxi Error and Boxi Message).

* Added the ``-c'' command-line option, which is ignored, and renamed
   README.txt back to README, to stop Make from complaining.

As before, you can download the latest version at 
[http://www.qwirx.com/boxi]. I am considering moving the project to 
SourceForget, as suggested by Ben Summers.

Thank you for your support.

Cheers, Chris.
