Few weeks ago Drupal.org moved from CVS to GIT for source code repositories. Old CVS repository have been placed into a code-frezze status, no more updates and read-only access.
Reading Drupal messages and development mailing-list I found myself to be one of the few Drupal developers using Windows (and the nice set of Tortoise- GUI tools) for code development (please don’t be too hard on me: I’m too
lazy busy right now to install and setup a Linux OS.. maybe I’ll reinstall my beloved Gentoo system?), but one of more users with issues on setting up TortoiseGIT and Drupal SSH keys.

Node: Due a hosting issue (all my database tables get dropped), I lost latest posts and comments, also the post about Iconizer 7.x icons. Sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll look for a better hosting
January 5th, 2011 was announced to be the D-Day.. and it is!
Dries Buytaert announced today the release of the new Drupal7 (you can download it here, or checkout the DRUPAL-7–1-0 branch from CVS repository). A lot of new features have been added (read the whole story here), such as SQLite support with the usage of PDO database abstraction layer.
I’m planning to port my blog to Drupal7 ASAP, if works and studies will leave me bunch of hours to do it!
I’ve already ported my Iconizer module to Drupal7, you’ll recognize the same icons from the Drupal6 release, so you’ll not be disoriented from the new (and more clean) administration interface! Give it a try!
I’ve recently found a nice VLC script for adding subtitles to any video using the great OpenSubtitles portal on this VLC Forum post. Such script does exactly what it sais: it crawls the OpenSubtitles website looking for the matching movie (no osdb hash function involved) and adds the subtitle into the VLC media player.
I’ve edited such LUA script (so, I’m not the original author of such script) also allowing the subtitle downloading for an off-line usage, the downloaded file is placed in the same movie folder, renamed as the movie itself with the language suffix. It’s my first attempt into LUA scripting language, it’s quite easy, but I’ve used about 3 hours to find out all the LUA features and the (sometimes not documented) VLC scripting functions.
- Due to a issse in VLC, all lua plugins that use GUIs (like SubtitlesFinder) aren’t supported under MAC OSx [citation missing]

- .. full changelog on SubtitlesFinder commit log
For an alternative of VLC-Subtitles-Finder, try VLCSub (written by Guillaume Le Maout) available at my GIT repository, installer also available in the project download section. VLCSub can’t search by movie title, but implements the Opensubtitles.org HASHing function (sometimes more accurate).
During the latest Christmas holidays I’ve found some time for a new Drupal Iconizer releasefor the upcoming Drupal7.
New icons have been added and some (for non Drupal7 modules) removed; the new D7 module includes also new icons based on new Drupal 7 admin style (icons names are now more readable).
Feel free to submit any issue into Iconizer issue queue.
