I don't mind building and uploading the Aeon Auriga theme regularly if you could integrate it into the updater.
All it needs to be done is unzip it to the themes directory and overwrite the old files.

no need to "build' since you can DL the latest from Github in ZIP format.

Since it's open-source, I believe I'm going to make this cross-platform.
What's the inside like anyways? *peeks..*
I'm not sure if I should just convert the current capability to a cross-platform able application or if I should make two separate applications.

Sorry for multi-post. I apparently went back without noticing and posted twice.
If you would, could I get a brief explanation on exactly what this application does on the inside? I'm not too sharp in C# (har har) and instead of struggling through it, I think I'll try and create a separate application using the language I'm most comfortable in that simulates what this does. In this case, I'll be able to recreate it completely using cross-platform methods.
EDIT 2: I get an error with the latest release concerning the font. Since I can't picture myself being the only one, here's a separate build of mine that changes the font to a GenericSanSerif: http://www.mediafire.com/?ziofnzmdrow
For the original developers, it simply says that "Font 'Tahoma' does not support style 'Regular'. Please notify developers". After a bit of trouble shooting, I gave up and changed it myself.

I absolutely love it for my windows install, but I'm about to put together a Zotac Ion based mini HTPC, and so I have to use the linux builds to get hardware acceleration. I'm thinking of using the live CD since it's the closest to a true HTPC, but I know zilch about Linux, so not sure how I'd easily get updates.
You have two choices in do this in Linux to update automatically to latest xbmc.
1) Tops script which updates to latest official release
2) Update script I wrote that updates to the latest svn release ..
Both are mentioned here .. http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid=49502

the fact is that this app download the windows build and installs them on windows, so even if you get the app to run on another platform the XBMC that it downloads wont!

Show currently installed revision and currently downloading revision for duration of entire update process. Currently the new revision number flashes up for a split second here.
Download to install later. Often i will kick of the updater when im doing maintenance tasks like updating and cleaning the library. I dont want the updater messing with the live version when these important tasks are happening but if it could grab the copy and detect that you have the latst copy cached ready on a subsequent run that would be a real time saver. This could be complimented with a option like "Cache only if XBMC is currently running"
Cache xx last versions to allow for roll back
Local rss feed showing a diff of changes from last installed version to newly installed version

Feature Request... - Livin - 2009-07-02 23:58
Have a separate "Event Log" (or log to the Windows Event Log) so that I can see only basic stuff...
If an update was available, which update
Time it took to DL
Time took to install
Date/Time ended and app quit
logs currently are separate files/days, not easy just to open a single fine and see the past few days stats.
