Using darcs to follow your progress, I noted that you did quite a few work
for more than a weekend.

I am very interested in a few of the new features (e.g. SVNPoller,
FileUp/Download and have tested them in my test environment. Also
the trial tests pass without any errors on my GNU/Debian machine.

Therefore I would like to ask if you could give us a hint when the next
version will be out.

Another question is, that I would have found it nice to specify the
attributes for a downloaded file, as I would like to download some test
scripts which have to be executed on the slave. And I would prefer to
specify in a Shell step "./my_bash.sh", instead of
[ "/bin/bash", "my_bash.sh"]. Would you accept patches for this? Or do you
consider it a too big security risk?

Best regards
