PLaneT improvements

I've been working a lot on PLaneT, and I'll be doing more in the coming days and weeks. A summary of what I've been up to in that regard:
  • The PLaneT client now support "development" links between PLaneT require specs and arbitrary directories on your file system, intended to make PLaneT package development easier
  • The PLaneT server now allows packages to specify a minimum mzscheme version that they should be installed on
  • Several improved error messages
  • A couple bugfixes that would have caused the client to crash the wrong way on certain errors
  • MIME-type tweaks on the server
  • The server is now running the latest SVN version of PLT Scheme. The primary reason for that was to get the client code synched up with the server code, but it may also have the effect of improving server stability

There's more coming up, by the way. I'm glad to see that people are using PLaneT for stuff.

  • Awesome! My biggest request is still to allow planet require-specs in the language position of a module declaration.

  • What Dave said!

    But I think we need to bribe Matthew and not Matthews.
