ANNOUNCE: Conduit 0.3.3

Hey Everyone!

I am proud to announce the fourth release in the Conduit development
series: Conduit 0.3.3

 * Download:
 * Screenshot/Screencast:

Bugs Fixed
 * Many Canvas issues fixed.
 * Login to photo upload sites should now respect your default browser
and perform more reliably on platforms without gnome-www-open
 * Swedish, French and Portugese translations
 * Signal emission thread safety fixes to eliminate a lot of lockups,
segfaults and crashers

New Features
 * Improved evolution interface (evolution-python 0.0.3 required)
 * Rewritten DBus interface
 * Refresh dataproviders no longer blocks the UI
 * Minimize to tray and iconification support (start with -i flag)
 * TwoWay dataproviders are added as sources or sinks depending on
what side of the canvas they are dropped on
 * Double click on a dataprovider to configure it
 * Much better test coverage of the core sync engine

What is Conduit
Conduit is a synchronization application for GNOME. It allows you to
synchronize your data between online web services (Gmail,, Flickr, PicasaWeb, and your computer.

What Can Conduit Do
Conduit can currently perform the following sync partnerships;

 * Two way file/folder sync on gnomevfs volumes and to/from
 * Two way Tomboy note sync via gnomevfs volumes
 * Two way Tomboy note sync via ipod notes
 * One way sync of files/folders of photos to Flickr, Smugmug and Picasa
 * One way sync of FSpot tagged photos to Flickr, Smugmug and Picasa
 * Sync and export of Evolution contacts, memos and tasks to ipod and
to a folder.

In the one way sync/export case Conduit is smart in the sense that if
a piece of data has not been modified then it will not be
synchronized/exported again, it will replace the existing data. In
addition if data is subsequently removed from a source then its
corresponding data will also be deleted.

Conduit has a full featured DBus interface to allow other application
authors to use Conduit to perform the synchronization and export tasks
of their applications.

Whats Planned For Future
 * n800 Support
 * Opensync support
 * Google gdata support (Notes, docs, base)
 * Direct PC-PC sync over local LAN using Avahi

I am actively looking for help with this project. Contact me if interested.
 * Conduit is written in python and PyGTK
 * Conduit has been designed to be easy to extend. It implements a
plugin system much like deskbar.
 * One of Conduits main aims is to encourage other developers to
  come onto the project through supplying:
    ** Full API Documentation:
    ** Developer Walk through:

More and more people use online services to organise their life, I
hope Conduit can be the bridge between peoples computers and the web.
