News Round-Up

I've been a bit slack on news so here's a quick round-up...
George Slavov has updated his Winamp plugin for Snarl.  It'll make its way onto the applications page in due course, in the meantime you can read more about it (and download it) here:  One thing it does which I really like is update notification content rather than simply creating a new notification each time - much easier on screen space!
Shawn McTear is currently working on a Python implementation of SNP 2.0 - it's still a work-in-progress, but you can follow developments here: - it's looking pretty good already...
On Snarl matters, we've had a flurry of GNTP applications which don't work correctly with Snarl.  This has been partly attributed to Snarl being too strict on applying the letter of the law when it comes to the GNTP specification.  I've relaxed the rules slightly which should improve compatability significantly.  There are still some other bugs (missing notification text and broken callbacks) to iron out but it's nice to see people cross-testing between GfW and Snarl!
Lastly, I've been putting the finishing touches to SnarlMail 1.2 Beta 1.  We've been pretty quiet about promoting this as it's always been pretty unstable, and Sven had a go at creating an Outlook Add-In (SnarlMail is a daemon) but we've had reports of users unable to install it due to Outlook permission issues.  I've got a few final tweaks to make and then it'll be uploaded in the next few days.
In the meantime, here's some snaps:
