Last night, got logging to daemon.log working on Windows. Aside from XMPP not working (but it's near to being deprecated anyway), and some possible issues with unicode characters in filenames, the Windows port now seems in pretty good shape for a beta release.
Today, mostly worked on fixing the release process so the metadata accurarely reflects the version from the autobuilder that is included in the release. Turns out there was version skew in the last release (now manually corrected). This should avoid that happening again, and also automates more of my release process.
