Electric Sheep Linux Client Release: 2.7b9

See the previous post for how to install it. If you have subscribed to our PPA, then your client will be auto-updated. The changelog is below. The important addition is support for authentication. If you create an account on the new drupal and then enter the same information into the "electricsheep-preferences" dialog, you'll get better bandwidth.
change default nickname to empty string to protect user privacy, instead of broadcasting USER envar. add a button to the preferences dialog that tests the current network settings (including if the user/password account is valid). use 20th percentile instead of median for deletion limit, ie protect fewer sheep. remove cvs version strings. follow http redirections vi -L option to curl. enable basic authentication (the user/password refers to the drupal on the sheep server). put the client version into the URL for the help page.
You may respond on the forum. Posted by spot at August 27, 2008 11:49 PM
