GSoC Update of the Week: Testdrive PyGTK Front-end

This week update brings some good news!!: After Dustin Kirkland’s announcement few days ago, I’ve finally merged TestDrive’s PyGTK Front-end code base with TestDrive’s code base. I’ve also prepared the packaging and released new packages to PPA for both Maverick and Lucid! After waiting 2 days, it’s finally about to build!! This means that packages will be available to install in the next few hours! Now, I’d like people to please start testing! In the next couple days I will release some new changes, in preparation to upload it to Ubuntu Maverick. To install, please do:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties sudo add-apt-repository ppa:testdrive/ppa sudo apt-get update

Then install TestDrive PyGTK Front-end:

Please stay tunned for updates and the release into maverick!! Enjoy 🙂
