        - Remove SmartIrc4Net

	- Code cleanups


0.4.0 for Linux and Mac (Sun Nov 12 2011):
        Hylke: It has been a while since the last release. Since so many 
        things changed, and it being (softly) incompatible with 0.2, I decided 
        to call it 0.4. Here are the most important improvements:

        - Support OS X Lion
        - Revamped "Add Hosted Project..." dialog
        - First run tutorial
        - Clicking notifications opens the event log
        - Support for organisation/host plugins
        - Adding empty folders now works
        - More useful error reporting
        - Progress bar on the initial sync, and a button to cancel
        - Replace IRC by a custom protocol as the default notification system
        - Many many fixes for crashes and bugs

        Travis:
        - Nautilus 3.x plugin
        - Bugfixes


0.2.5 for Linux and Mac (Mon Jul 25 2011):

        Hylke: Reimplement notes to be less buggy and backend independent. Polish
        about dialog and event log html. Fix a bug where large collections of files 
        weren't being synced when adding them at the same time. The event log now
        collapses huge change sets and squashes events together by day when they
        are on the same day and in the same folder. Add a controller per UI component 
        to make the Windows verion easier to implement.


0.2.4 for Linux and Mac (Wed Jun 29, 2011):

        Hylke: Fix crash when setting up with an empty Git repository.


0.2.3 for Linux and Mac (Tue Jun 28, 2011):

        Hylke: Add the ability to add notes in the event logs. Fix some quirks
        in the webkit view on Linux. Redid gravatar fetching parts to be more
        efficient. Remove headless feature. Fix some small bugs and crashes.
        SparkleShare will now also try to use your existing SSH keypair. Required
        Git version is now 1.7.1 or later.


0.2.2 for Linux and Mac (Tue Jun 14, 2011):

        Hylke: Fix crash on first run when ~/.ssh doesn't exist. Sync algorithm
        tweaks. New global event log. Ubuntu integration with libappindicator. Poll
        sometimes even when using the notification service.


0.2.1 for Linux and Mac (Wed Jun 8, 2011):

        Hylke: Fix bug where host names with a "-" in them weren't accepted. Fix
        crash that happens when the user doesn't have their "Real Name" set in the 
        OS and a race condition connecting to the announcements server.


0.2 for Linux and Mac (Mon Jun 6, 2011):

	Hylke: Removed the dependancy on GitSharp. File rename detection support
	in the event logs. Fixed all crashes reported in RC1 and improved sync
        algorithm. Redid collision detection and conflict resolving (use a copy
	of each version). Improved about dialogs with version checking. Pluggable
	backend (experimental Mercurial support). Added support for Growl to show
	notifications on Mac.


0.2-rc1 for Linux and Mac (Sun Mar 20, 2011):

	Hylke: A lot of fixes and optimisations across the backend. Less memory 
	usage, less crashes. Instant notifications of new changes instead of polling.
	Refreshed event log HTML theme. Keeping logs in memory for faster reopening and
	loads more goodness.


0.2-beta2 for Mac (Sat Feb 12, 2011):

	Hylke: Mac version! Massive restructure of the code to an MVC-like model
	to make building different front-ends easier. Ported the event logs to
	Webkit, so users can style it to their liking. It also reduces the amount
	of UI-porting that needs to be done between toolkits.


0.2-beta1 (Sun Sep 5, 2010):

	Hylke: Aside from the usual bug fixes and behind the scenes work I mainly
	added features that increase productivity in the event logs. Not only does
	it look a lot prettier, each entry in an event log now has a clickable link
	for easy access to files. It refreshes automatically on new events as well.
	The Nautilus plugin now	has the "Copy Web Link" context	menu item, which
	makes sharing links a whole lot easier.
