I finally got around to blowing away my 184.108.40.206 Evergreen test installation and instead tracking the SVN trunk build (including OpenSRF trunk). With all that excitement, I missed the announcement that Evergreen 1.4 release candidate 1 is now available. You can download the source tarball here and installation instructions for Ubuntu 8.04 are here.
OpenSRF version 1.0.0 was also released to coincide with the release candidate (available here).
When installing the SVN version of OpenSRF on Ubuntu, I found that doing “sudo apt-get install python-dnspython python-myghtyutils python-pyxmpp python-simplejson” put some dependencies in place before the “configure; make; make install”. While the install scripts are pretty good about going and out and grabbing the source code of deps online and installing them for you, I prefer having proper packages and all the package management goodness that they bring.
