Folks, I've halted any significant changes to GShell so we can push out a stable release for Geronimo to consume in the next week or so. Right now it is pending some dependency releases:
I've got the ball rolling on each of those and with a wee bit of luck and probably a healthy dose of pestering folks, we should get all of these resolved to facilitate the first *official* GShell release... yay!
I'm hoping to get GShell 1.0-alpha-1 out in the next week or so, really as soon as the deps are published I will start the ball moving. I could use a little help in the mean time for things like legal oversight and anything else I might have missed to help make the vote+release as smooth as possible, So if you have a few minutes spare it would be nice if you could build the tree and poke around a bit er something.
Should be as easy as:
and to test the shell, something like:
gunzip -c ./gshell-assembly/target/gshell-*-bin.tar.gz | tar xf -
(and then just make sure that the 'help' command and 'exit' work should be sufficient probs).
If ya find anything please file blocker issues for 1.1-alpha-1 here:
And I'll get it sorted out ASAP

I've got a lot of plans to improve the plugability (and extensibility) of the shell as well as tidy up some of the GShell (BASH-like) syntax, get the remote shell muck stable and get some scripting examples up and running too... but I have to get this release out first before I can continue as those are relatively destabilizing changes.
Lastly, a wee shout out to folks that have been in active with da'shell...
* David Jencks - Your insight is, IMO, invaluable... and I really appreciate you taking to time to poke around and enjoy the bliss which is GShell :-P
* Jason Warner - I really appreciate the extra pair of eyes (well, and patches too), don't be afraid to laid down some pimp ideas or rants, whatever, I don't bite, no matter what you might have heard :-P
And... well, to the rest of you too. GShell has been a dream I've had er since back in the dark days, and its really starting to becoming something useful. So thanks for giving my vision a shot to thrive (and well, ya know... kick ass) :-)
Aight, more to come later...
