Its always good to give explicit directions on how to get your plugins
otherwise many folks wont know what to do to test your latest goodies!

> Hum... as usual I've been trying to improve QGIS tools to fit to my needs. And
> as usual the result is some upgrades in the plugins and a new tool.
> The new tool is the pypostgis plugin. It's a very rough plugin to pass queries
> to postgis using OGR connection. It creates a primary key for the resulting
> table and loads it to QGis.
> The update in qgis_rgb is that now the plugin creates a virtual raster instead
> of a new huge geotiff. I think it's the best aproach as the plugin goal is to
> be a quick way to visualize satelite data in qgis. It now uses gdal and
> python-xml so i don't know if it's going to work on windows (can someone
> test?). The drawback is that the vrt is slower than the RGB geotif.
> The update in qgsAzimuth is the irradiation process. The goal is to be rough
> precision drawing for qgis.
> The update in qgsAddWkt is the geometry validation. The approach chosen is
> very ugly as it tests the expression creating a new ogr geometry from wkt.
> And if it works it creates a qgsgeometry from wkt. It's done this way because
> I wasn't able to catch the exception when creating a qgsgeometry from wkt. I
> think it's a QGIS' API bug. If it's not I'd be glad to know.
> Well, I hope someone like the plugins as much as I enjoy making them. Any
> sugestions to improve them is welcome.
