I've got some good stuff to talk about this time around:

Prettiest Drupal Admin Interface Ever.

Keep up the eye candy :) I've recently had to opportunity to allow some non-tech-savvy people access to a Drupal site I set up for them, and the admin interface needs improvement. In fact, it needs to be able to confine the lesser used options off somewhere out of the way of those who are just managing content and rearranging blocks.

You can make your site available offline!
Some great code came out of Coding in Paradise that will let you specify the pages you want available offline, a 32x32 shortcut icon, and boom you can make your pages available offline with a desktop shortcut via Google Gears. Great for research sites and such. (I want this on :) )

Cross platform repository management
Anyone that's used SVN probably knows that if by some chance the line endings in a file are changed (eg, someone on Windows opens a Mac file) the revision control system will log every line as changed. But, there is an easy solution!

Just add:

enable-auto-props = yes

* = svn:eol-style=native
to your ~/.subversion/config should do the trick. For more information, and a tool to fix existing line ending issues, go here.

Feel free to ping me if you have any questions around PubTools or Gears if you want to make this stuff work offline. Sounds cool :)
