Just thought I'd mention that latest foo_queuecontents is version 0.2. Manager is saying 0.1.1 and that XML file is out of date.

I hope this component isn't dead, wonder if someone else could update the xml and then we can change the url, in case the current developer has abandoned this project.

Hi everyone,

Apologies for not updating the xml list or component for the past two weeks. I've been unable to update the component for the reason given below.

I fell ill on the 4th March with an incredibly painful headache and it was soon discovered that the headache was being caused be a brain aneurysm. I had brain surgery the past week to clamp the aneurysm and, thank God, the surgery went without a hitch (in the face of a stroke or worse). I've only just gotten out of hospital and require rest at home for the next month or so.

Given this very rapid change in my life, I've decided to take a step back from component development and focus more on my immediate family and life in general. So I'm afraid I will be taking a break from contributing to this component for the next few months, if not permanently.

The component is open source so anyone else may continue development, and anyone is free to host and update the xml file themselves.

Thank you everyone who has taken the time to use the component, report bugs, and make all of the numerous xml suggestions.

fraganator - that is terrible, but I'm glad you're doing well.  Thank you for all you've done, you will be in my prayers, take care of yourself and we look forward to your healthy return in the future.
Was that a 1 or a 0?

We should probably upload the source to a code hoster. I suggest Launchpad or Github, any objections/preferences?

google code or sourceforge?

A big thank you to everyone for their support and well wishes. It really does mean a lot  Headaches have completely gone, it's just a matter of waiting for energy levels to slowly return.

By the sounds of things this component will be superseded by foobar2000 core at some point in the near future. To quote Peter on foo_component_manager (on the day of its release):

Not to discourage anything, but I think this idea sucks, this task needs to be implemented by core and without idiotic limitations like requiring foobar2000 to be running as admin.
If you choose to continue developing this, you'll be in for a serious disappointment a few foobar2000 versions later when your work becomes completely obsolete.

A few foobar versions later, huh? Looking forward to that! No reason why a solution that works right now (without requiring foobar to run as admin, I might add) is an idea that "sucks", though...
