Kanit Update

I was stranded for a while in an airport last week, so I took the opportunity to update kanit. The new version number is 0.6, and it includes two new features:

  1. Task Type: The task files can now include a ":type:" field. This type value will be added to the output of the task as a CSS class, so keeping the task types CSS friendly is a good idea.

A Registration and Serial Demo

A potential customer asked me for a demo of how to use the registration and serial library in a GUI app. To give a decent approximation of how an application might work, I created a serial number generator that encodes the customer number, software expiration date, and program options in the serial number.
