Hi,

GAP is proud to announce its two new applications in its collection: MPDCon and 
Zipper.
OK, they are not new, but their original authors stopped working on them long 
years ago, but after contacting them,
they are happy with us giving them a new home on GAP, and continuing 
development.

MPDCon is a Music Player Daemon client, for more information, and the changes 
that happend on GAP in the
last couple of days, take a look here:
http://gap.nongnu.org/mpdcon/index.html

Zipper is a tool for inspecting and extracting the contents of compressed 
archives, for more information, and the 
changed that happend on GAP in the last couple of days take a look here:
http://gap.nongnu.org/zipper/index.html
The support for BSD tar is known to be broken, so you need GNU tar, and the 
default open application (View menu entry) is known to not to work, we'll 
probably keep a solution for that for a next release.
Interesting here is whether it works with all the different versions of the 
command line (un)archivers out there.

So we are short before a release of both, but would like to get some feedback 
from testers.
(we don't want to have a bugfix release short after the release ;)

To test, pull the sources from GAP CVS:

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gap co gap/system-apps/Zipper
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gap co gap/user-apps/MPDCon

cheers,
Sebastian
