Hello All,

There is a lot of changes in the new Installer. Under Ubuntu everything works, 
but please help me to test it under Win and Mac. I'm going to manage until 
the freeze.

Due to mistakes in the main repository, there is still a few 
untrue "uninstalled+orphan" pairs of items. Couldn't anybody apply my 
fixes...? :)

There are some changes I'm going to do in this week:
- faster refetching
- enabling/disabling repositories
- looking for updates on QGIS start
- improved uninstalling (now file removing isn't fully recursive)
- improved XML parsing (see Düster Horst's "python geoprocessing" mail)
- reloading the upgraded plugin without need of QGIS restart (is this 
- storing the column order and other user preferences
- face lifting (icons instead of string status indicators etc)
- cleaning, commenting, language fixes etc

- any kind of further suggestions is welcome
