Subject New WebGate 0.3 Release
Date Mon, 12 Jul 2004 20:46:54 GMT
In case anyone is interested - I released version 0.3 of my WebGate
application (formerly Sentinel).  Its still in its early stages.. but
is currently somewhat usable (much more than the 0.2 release).  It
uses Cocoon 2.1.4 for its web interface.. I'll upgrade to 2.1.5 with
the 0.4 release.

If you havent heard me mention WebGate in the past.. its an
application that functions as an information aggregator.  It includes
RSS reading support (from any RSS, RDF or Atom feed), updated weather
conditions, integrated Google/Dictionary/IMDB searching, and fully
functional TV programming grid (pulls data from

The biggest change from 0.2 to 0.3 you ask?  Here's a quick list:

*  A windows version with installer!!
*  New "skin" and a redesigned look and feel of the web interface
*  Configuration GUI (SWT)
*  Console GUI (also SWT based)
*  TV Grid data is now loaded automagically from - no
need for XMLTV anymore.  Just sign up for an account at and modify your conf/ file to
include your zap2it login information.

Anyways.. if you're interested take a look!  If not.. just ignore this
email :)  I would have never been able to get this app redesigned so
quickly without the help of Cocoon.  Yay!  Maybe I'll get into
flowscript and redesign it for that in the next version (I'm using
mostly XSPs and redirects and such.. kinda ugly but works).
