windows client status

I moved from Visual Studio 6 to Visual Studio .NET, and I took the opportunity to clean up a bunch of the code. You can now get the source from danga's CVS repository (why does that say LiveJournal on it, anyway?) and graba new setup executable from my speakeasy account (Brad: I'd like some webspace on danga [danga.com/~martine?] for these sorts of files, separate from my personal website).

I rewrote a significant amount of this, so I've likely introduced new bugs and there have been some regressions. Bug reports are always welcome, but I still haven't implemented some things so I guess it's hard to tell what are bugs and what are unimplemented features.

Changes from last version:
+ Support Windows XP themes! Yay!
+ Retrieves galleries from server.
+ Properly escapes gallery names (duh, I just forgot two lines of code).
? Executable mysteriously gained 60kb. Where'd this come from? Maybe an optimization setting somewhere?
? I'm now using InnoSetup because it seems cleaner than NSIS and I didn't need to edit the source for it to support the Send To menu. This bloats the download up to 300kb somehow?
? I get the :FB_in gallery when I get my gallery list. Brad indicated that's a bug on the server side.
- No status dialog on any transfers (still haven't fixed that part).

To grab the source, I recommend WinCVS, which you (Brad) can combine with Network Simplicity's OpenSSH for SSH access. (Unfortunately, it appears that OpenSSH doesn't want to share keyfiles with PuTTY. Anybody know about this?)

If you want to contribute, feel free to send me patches. (Or do Windows people do something different?) If you need help with that, let me know and I'll write a document on how it works. If you just send me new files and not patches, I will just delete them.
