Extended absence

The time has finally arrived, and I'm off on my travels in four days. I'll be away from the computer for up to two months, spending a month trekking in Chile, then a month doing various other things. I might be back in time for the GNOME 2.24 string freeze, but I should definitely be back in time to see the release. In my absence, I obviously won't be able to do any further work on this cycle, but I think all my current contributions are pretty much complete anyway. I won't be replying to mail for at least the period I'm in Chile.

I won't be around to see them get into the archives, but Stefan Ebner has been working on packaging both Diary (now called "Almanah" due to Fedora issues) and Hitori for Ubuntu. My thanks to him for his hard work on that, and patience in helping me fix all the nasty little autofoo problems.

I'll try to make an Almanah (Diary) 0.4 release before I go, but I want to leave as long as possible for translations to catch up with the several string changes.
Almanah 0.4.0 is out! The main change for this release is to rename it and fix some problems preventing it being packaged, and so it should be compatible with old databases. The build requirements haven't changed.
