WOW! I regret to say that I haven't played with Plucker for some time. Time to install the latest version and to give it a try.

Would be nice if some more Plucker experts were present here and discuss latest Plucker developments.

FYI: Plucker discussions are held on the plucker-* mailing lists. Turcic is more an iSilo-oriented site.

Laurens, it is true that we talk currently more about iSilo than Plucker; that was not necessarily our choice. I would surely appreciate more Plucker fans here, and I even asked David (Hacker) if he would favor a more active community here, but he never replied back to me. My idea was to present an alternative to the mailing list since I personally favor forums to lists.

That said, Plucker users, you are always welcomed here! And Laurens, congratulation for that great tool you wrote.

I've been using JPluck for a while and I must say that it's a great application. Beta 3 is impressive and the new GUI is a boon (although manually editing JXL's isn't *that* hard). It destroys AvantGo in almost every way (remote sync is the only feature AG has in its favour) but I haven't used iSilo, so can't compare it with that.
