Thanks for the advice.
Took me some time to find out how to checkout and how to build a new version
of cocoon
and forrest. The hardest part though was the integration of the new cocoon
version in forrest.
The script for the integration of cocoon into forrest was only avialable in
i tried to find out what it actually did.....and did the integration
manually on my XP.
Are there any plans for integrating the new cocoon version into Forrest?
