I wrote earlier that Plinth is not yet ready be maintained as stable
release.  However, there is plenty of progress in Plinth and I am happy
to announce a new release.


  Plinth is a web interface to administer the functions of Freedom Box.


  - Ability to enable and see status of Tor Hidden Services.
  - Fully migrated to Django and removed all code that was re-inventing
    web frameworks.
  - Migrated to Python 3.
  - Ability to write and distribute Plinth modules outside of Plinth
    repository: FredomBox Apps.
  - Improved security using Django authentication and forms.
  - Reorganized source code to look more like a Python application.
  - Use Python setup.py instead of custom Makefiles.
  - Setting up Plinth for development is easier.
  - Removed dependency on withsqlite package with help from Django
  - Removed duplicated code in Twitter bootstrap JS/CSS by depending
    on proper Debian packages.
  - Removed stubs and TODOish messages in UI in preparation of proper
    public (developer) release.
  - Code quality clean-ups.
  - Updated documentation on setting up and using Plinth from source.


  Plinth's upstream URL is: https://github.com/freedombox/Plinth/

  Latest Plinth package is available in Debian unstable (special thanks
  to Petter Reinholdtsen).

Contributors to this release:

  - James Valleroy
  - Michael Pimmer (fonfon)
  - Nick Daly
  - Sunil Mohan Adapa

Call for help:

  Plinth is in much better shape than before.  Most of us are looking
  to add more features now that we are mostly done with clean-ups.  It
  is good time join in and write UI for the favourite functionality you
  want to see in FreedomBox.  You can contribute to Plinth by coding,
  designing, documenting, testing etc.
