Synopsis
Bluefish 1.0 is a major step forward in GNOME web development. We gotta have it.

Backporting process
This source package is from a non-Debian source: http://pkedu.fbt.eitn.wau.nl/~olivier/downloads/bluefish-1.0.tar.bz2

Fortunately, it's already debianized by the author.

Packaging Status
i386: staging rev 18.
ppc: No maintainer
amd64: No maintainer

Beta testing notes
The debianization wasn't done so wonderfully.... There were a few cases of "sandbox violation", but I forced the build to continue as root. Make sure no files are missing from the archive as a result.

Any word on whether or not this works?

It works for me and german localisation is far better than in 0.12 - haven't noticed any problems with that version.

Oh please tell me you're moving it from staging soon. I need this version to run my happy 1.x bluefish projects, and since it's the app I use to make my income, I can't risk the staging version. :(

would money help it move faster...? ;)

Works great here. It seems very stable and handles larger php files (+2000 lines) much smoother than previous versions.

I've instructed rufius to promote it. Thanks everyone for your testing.

(I'm recovering from Reiser4+RAID5+LVM-mania..... REMIND ME NOT TO DO THAT AGAIN)

I've enabled warty backports but synaptic doesn't see any more recent version of bluefish.

Looking through the backports repository, I'm guessing it's because the file is in the wrong place -- see http://backports.ubuntuforums.org/backports/dists/warty-backports/ -- shouldn't the deb file be inside one of the sections?

Bluefish packages exist in that directory...

I still can't see it I'm afraid.
Both apt-get and synaptic are telling me 0.12 is the most recent version.

I have the line
deb http://ubuntu-bp.sourceforge.net/ubuntu/ warty-backports main universe

in my sources.list and I've run update.

You need to switch the ubuntu-bp.sf.net address overto http://backports.ubuntuforums.org/backports

Not that it's going to matter in a few days, but the Unofficial Ubuntu 4.10 Starter Guide has the wrong URL.

EDIT... I was looking at my saved copy. it doesn't seem to have it at all now...

Hmm, I'll have to talk to the guy about including the new Backports....

There was the only backports bug ever -- Firefox 1.0 & Java applets crashing... That scared him away from recommending backports. It's too bad. Oh well, at least we've moved on.
