Granular's first repository mirror

We are pleased to announce that the Granular repository has a new mirror. The mirror is a complete replica of our main repo hosted on granularproject.org. So, in case you get low download speeds from the main repo or the main repo goes down, you can always use this new repo mirror in those cases.

To get started, add this information in Synaptic Package Manager:
URI: http://cz-lxweb.com/content/repo/
Distribution: granular/2008
Section(s): e17 kde main extras

Additionally, there is a "test" section that can be added to the above sections list.

Instructions on adding a new repo in Synaptic can be found on our wiki page.

Granular 1.0 RC release

It is my pleasure to announce the availability of Granular 1.0 RC, the last development release before the final Granular 1.0. This release is more stable, user-friendly, usable, and more fun to use. Quite some bugs have been fixed, improvements made, updates done; thanks to your constant feedback on the previous release (Granular 1.0 Preview).

Granular 1.0 will be the most ambitious release for the Granular Project, and this release is just another step in that direction.

I want to thank all the developers and contributors in Team Granular and all the members of Granular Community Forums who helped achieve this release.
