It's been a great ride - I know some was hoping somehow this ship would be kept afloat, but as it's destined to go down, the crew will keep the memory of it alive

That explains the 9 new messages my rss reader discovered :)

Version 0.99:

Just a small update before the 1.0 release. Added the possibility to add a timestamp to the image. The timestamp displays the time and date of the last BOS update.

I know the development of BOS has been a bit slow lately, but I'm working on other projects also and BOS seems to run pretty stable. Besides, I've been thinking about the scheme for mirroring which looks to become pretty ambitious :)

Well, I just thought it might be nice to have this timestamp, although it looks pretty odd in this version (my opinion). Ok, I still call it alpha ;)

Now that's real great news - I'm guessing the whole BOINC community, users, developers and project managers alike are celebrating the next few days :D

Version 0.97
Made some multi language changes:

- Changed the font from build in font to true type Arial. This eliminates alot of character problems
- The image now has dynamic width. It changes if states in a variety of languages are longer then the standard width.
- Added four languages. I will wait adding chinese and russian untill I have conquered a charset problem. I will look into this saturday when the server is offline anyway

Naturally the URL generator is changed accordingly.

Fixed the backend as SETI@home changed the reporting so it looked like the scheduler was Unreachable when it wasn't.

Added an RSS news feed. It's available here: http://www.esea.dk/esea/bos_devserv_news.asp

Version 0.93:

Added background transparency. As the image is .png this might not work in all -internet Explorer versions.

Fixed a bug that made the image display the uptime percentage of Pirates@home as the uptime percentage for BURP in some cases.

Added links page to URL generator site.

Added background image to URL generator so that you can see how transparency works.

<p>Version 0.85</p>
<p>Added the ability to have uptime percentages appended directly to the online
status, so now you can choose between nice coloumns, only a space between status
and percentage, and only percentage.</p>
<p>Added simulated images to the URL generator, so now you can see the colors
of all states, and don't have to wait until a projects goes down or gets unreachable.
There's even a simulated image for the odd occurance that none of the projects
are online ;)</p>
<p>Color names for standard colors have been added to the URL generator. One of
them is not found on O'Reilly's list though. The bosgolden color is one I created
for this image. The other standard text colors weren't on O'Reilly's list either,
so I changed them accordingly for best match.</p>
<p>Added the ability to change the tagline color. This way you can choose a color
for it that doesn't clash with the background color.</p>
<p>Change the URLs generated by the URL generator and added them to the image
script. The URLs will now get shorter. The old URLs you may already use will
still work.</p>
<p>Fixed a stupid bug that made the online status for climateprediction disappear
when not online, and especially if it's down. I didn't know the bug was there
until I saw the simulated images, so they've been a great help for me too ;)</p>
<p>I wanted to do alot more from the Coming up list, but I have to get up early
in the morning.</p>
<p>Well, go to the URL
generator site
for the latest updates ;)</p>
