Well, after a lot of hard work from the Software for Starving Students dev team, the latest version of SSS is available just in time for the oncoming semester. Dave Turnbull made some major GUI enhancements that will make it way easier to navigate, and there were lots of new programs, updates, and screenshots added.
The BitTorrent for this release has actually been seeded for over a day, but I didn’t finish the press release until about 1:30 this morning. Just a few minutes later there were already 19 downloads started, and I’ve contacted a lot of people since. I think there will be a huge amount of action this morning when people start waking up, but it may be a little sluggish because of the weekend. So it will be interesting to see if the amount of traffic makes a good dent. I’ve never really used BitTorrent (pathetic – I know) so I’m excited to find out.
SoftwareFor is doing some really neat stuff that I’ll discuss in later posts; I’ve got to get to bed!
