*NEW* Scopett (version 2)

The new scopett has and is being totally rewritten from scratch. This is so because the concept of the entire program has change. The idea is to make it simpler and easier to set up. So then what's built in this new version: 1. Built in webserver!, yes no apache nor any webserver is requiered anymore, therefore anyone can use it. / 2.Wizard! So anybody can set it up in less than a minute! / 3. Easy installation! No console required. / 4. Intuitive interface! So everybody can operate it!

Basically you will only need to install it, and start it up, voila! Any user accessing the 8080 port with a web browser will see your desktop.

When is it going to be ready? Scopett V2 development versions will soon be available via CVS just for developers to test. Stable version will be release fortunately before July finishes. If you are ager to try this software you can get the CVS version as soon as it ready, press CVS in the menu for more information. [back to top]

After reading about http protocol I started coding what will be the scopett’s webserver, it will be only about 100 lines! I also managed to join files in one executable, therefore make things easier. Check the Changelog to see what I’m doing.

Holidays! That means that I will have loads of time to restart the new Scopett. Plans have started and old code is ready.

Redesigning of Scopett started. The new scopett will be rebuilt from scratch, check the new features to see what is coming.

First release of Scopett-gtk and Scopett-ncurses. Screenshots and download available.

You can download Scopett HERE. Remember that since Scopett is being redesign vers peion 1.1 is considered obsolete because is different to our current objectives. You can download it for testing but WE DO NOT RECOMMEND IT. Use Console-0.1 which is fast and stable.
