GNU Foliot 0.9.6-alpha released

GNU Foliot version 0.9.6-alpha is released.

        Special Note:

        Before GNU Foliot became a GNU package, it was named Kisê. The change of
        name has implied thousands of source code, manual and web-pages changes.

        The application is quite robust, with respect to the implemented
        functionality  as in version 0.9.5, but the huge quantity of source code
        changes is, in itlself, error prone, hence an alpha release.

        Obviously, we strongly recommend you make a backup of your
        database(s), if you were a Kisê user, you can never be too prudent!

* About GNU Foliot

GNU Foliot is a small and easy to use time keeping application.

It can be used in a single user mode or by small organizations. Starting with
version 0.9.4, it can import other user's database, an essential feature for 

The fields it handles are: a date, who, for whom, what, a duration, whether or 
to be charged and a description.

It includes, on the main application screen, a powerful dynamic filters criteria
mechanism, which lets you visualize, work on and print a subset of your time 

A printing templates system allows you to (pre)define, reuse and hence quickly
generate the pdf files and/or printed reports of your needs.

A version which will let users export an active filter based subset of their 
keeping entries is under work.

* Changes since 0.9.5

Here is a summary of the changes since version 0.9.5. See GNU Foliot's git

        -] automatic schema migration from kise -> foliot has been implemented;
        opening and re-importing dabatase(s) always trigger a schema check and

        Because of the above, we strongly recommend you make a backup of your
        database(s), if you were a Kisê user of course: you can never be too

        the     .sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the 
        file and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

                gpg --verify foliot-0.9.6-alpha.tar.gz.sig

        If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
        then run this command to import it:

                gpg --keyserver --recv-keys A3057AD7

        and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
