Today and yesterday I trawled through Jack’s heavy codebase and removed all Wget and Curl dependancies. Instead, they have now been replaced with Hollywood 5’s new Network Support commands. This is addition to yesterday’s work on the new Download form available in the menu bar – making it easier than ever sign-up and get involved.
In regard to Jack itself – this was quite a lengthy job given that Jack uses a fair amount of network connectivity under the hood, here is a short list of areas effected by this changeover:
- Account Login and Sign-Up
- Account Password Management, i.e. Change Password/Forgot Password
- Featured Apps Page
- Rating Software
- Downloading of Applications/Software
- Uploading of your Knowledge-Base submissions
- Retrieving the OS4Depot software repository
