Releases: ftv_gnome Version 1.2 Released

This took a little longer than I originally anticipated, but ftv_gnome version 1.2 is now ready for download. This release builds on v1.1 by adding the ability to add, edit, and remove program data. I'm not 100% confident that all of the timezone conversion issues of manual editing have been fixed, but it seems to work at the moment and the code makes sense, so I'm releasing.

If you have v1.2pre1, this release fixes a number of bugs that were in that version. For example, ftv_gnome probably shouldn't crash any more. Additionally the aforementioned timezone issues seem to be resolved. If v1.2pre1 works for you, this isn't really a need to upgrade, but I would suggest upgrading just to be safe (in case maybe you aren't noticing the errors).

The TODO for ftv_gnome still has a few items in it, but the program works well enough for me and I don't have quite as much time to work on it, so don't expect a lot of releases in the future. ftv_gnome seems pretty feature complete to me, so I don't really see any need to keep coding (internationalization support might be helpful, but there is virtually no documentation for i18n that I can find...)

Hopefully furious_tv and ftv_gnome are working well for you! (Don't forget to try Shuriken if you've got a dedicated box or you want to save power =)
