As of today, 7/18/2004...
I have rebuilt all of the files in the main repository.
The latest build dates are now 7/18/2004 for the main area.
The testing area files will get the same attention this week.

Upgrade as needed, as a few bugs were fixed in the extensions.
As always, upgrading is recommended...

Rebuilding them has resolved issues between user dsl and damnsmall.
The extensions should now be happy installing in
either 0.7.1 or earlier versions as user damnsmall,
or in 0.7.2 or higher as user dsl.

Another issue brought up recently is that many of the volunteer
mirrors of the .iso versions of DSL are also hosting some extensions.
DSL cannot verify the integrity of these files, and it is
recommended that users download the extension builds from
the ibiblio mirrors, which we maintain daily.

On another topic.......
roberts has written his magic to the repository tables again.
You now have the choice to either view the default, alphabetically,
or click on the "date" link to resort the page by latest date.
Click on the "Application" link to resort again by title.

For now, the main page is mostly today's date, due to the rebuilds,
but the testing area really shows the usefulness of this feature,
as the newest uploads are at the top of the list when the "date" link is used.

Play with these new builds, and let me know if there are issues.
