SourceForge Attack; Spartacus affected

This week, the SourceForge.Net servers have been attacked. Since the Serendipity project hosts files and our plugin's CVS on SourceForge's provided servers, this also affects our maintaineance and distribution of plugins through Spartacus.

For people having problems, you can manually download plugins through You should be able to choose as the spartacus mirror as well.

Normal services should be restored in a few days. For the longer run, our team might move plugin repositories from CVS to SVN or even Git, but changing this will take some time (and discussion).

Serendipity Updater Plugin

Onli has contributed a new plugin to spartacus, called serendipity_event_autoupdate. It is currently very much in experimental state and is meant to aid in the process of upgrading Serendipity (which already is quite easy, but automatic might even be better, right?).

If you are interested in this feature, now is the time to help develop it! Please give Feedback to online (german) or directly on the corresponding forum thread.
