    Maybe that makes the progress bar animate? No, it doesn't.

    target is an ObjC object, so nil, not NULL.

    Merge of changes from SVN repository:

    - Changed NTSynchronousTask to also give the status return value and direct stderror output to the outputData.
    - Changed includes so this builds as part of an app, too, not just as a framework
    - Made sure SUAppcast's dealloc releases some leaked ivars.
    - Added infoURL, extracted from link, that can point to a "more Info" page for download-less URLs
    - Added support for version attribute on item so we can support update notifications that don't include an enclosure (e.g. paid upgrades, or upgrades that would require a system update)
    - Added/improved a few description methods to ease debugging.
    - Added SULog so one can ask for a special log with additional information when there are update issues.
    - Added mayUpdateAndRestart for apps that absolutely, positively can't restart right now (e.g. cuz they're burning a CD and would produce a coaster).
    - Added updaterWillRelaunchApplication delegate method, analogous to the notification. Useful to have app delegate quit helper apps during installation.
    - Made SUBasicUpdateDriver's abortUpdate implicitly retain/autorelease the update driver, because the notification center otherwise releases it and it goes away, causing crashes in superclass's abortUpdate.
    - Merge of SUKeepDownloadOnFailedInstallKey and SUFixedHTMLDisplaySizeKey.
    - Avoid a few warnings about missing prototypes
    - Be paranoid, hdiutil can verify the download again, so let it. Better for internal apps where we turn off DSA checks, too.
    - SUHost has an -installationPath now, independent from the bundlePath, so one can normalize the app name from "MyApp 1.1b4" back to "MyApp" Users assume the file name contains the correct version number when there is one in it. Saves support a few round-trips each time.
    - Be better at threading: Try calling non-thread-safe methods on main thread only, and don't assume delegates know when they need to be thread-safe, call them on main thread where possible.
    - Added a method to put the old copy of the app in the trash. 1.5git changed in this spot, so I didn't actually merge the code that uses it back in yet.
    - Fix version comparison so it doesn't get confused by bracketed build numbers in version strings
    - Make sure cancel button is disabled during extraction, otherwise user would crash.
    - Don't put auto-update window at floating window level. It's huge and can't be switched to background! If you're an NSBGOnly where you need that, turn it on only in that case, but don't generally do such nonsense.
    - Hide release notes view if there aren't any.
    - Test whether we are on dial-up before checking for updates in background. It's not nice to cause (possibly expensive) dial-up periodically.
    - Temporarily comment out DSA complaints for easier testing.
    - Don't store (possibly already invalidated) one-shot NSTimers in an ivar. It's bad style. Retain it instead.
    - Decompress some monster expressions with nested method calls in ternary operators and nested in method calls again.
    - Don't use implicit "id" for params or return types.
    - finish_installation now puts up a progress window, so user knows update is still not finished.
    - Use ThreadSafePreferences (included dummy version that uses regular prefs for projects that don't use ThreadSafePreferences).
    - Todo later: Change finish_installation to be prettier.

  1. performed a code review, specifically:

    - changed some #include to #import
    - fixed some NULL -> nil Cocoa coding conventions
    - added new compiler warnings and fixed some warnings they generated
    - check for nil from NSTemporaryDirectory
    - added missing files to unit test and test app targets
    - added xcconfig files for unit test target
    - added @private to some ivars
    - changes some variables from signed to unsigned as appropriate
    - changed from base 2 to base 10 measurements of file size, consistent with both the actual meaning of metric prefixes and Apple's new policy as of 10.6
    - reduced some unneeded copy-paste of code
    - fixed failure to check for null from malloc and unneeded check against null before calling free
    - OSErr was incorrectly used instead of OSStatus
    - added some consts & statics to global strings
    - fixed some issues discovered by static analysis
    - fixed some 64bit issues, mostly related to casting and the use of slightly incorrect types/sizes
    - some dealloc methods were using accessors, changed to access ivars directly, as per Apple guidelines
    - removed old NS_DURING, NS_HANDLER, NS_ENDHANDLER macros
    - fixed a bug where immutable data was being mutated
    - removed all instance of "== YES" as they are dangerous
    - removed some redundant nil checks
    - fixed some leaks
    - conditionally replaced deprecated method usage
    - cleanup CF/NSMakeCollectable usage
    - fixed bug in GC where memory could be collected too early due to lack of strong references when using UTF8String
    - prevent passing null to CFRelease

    Fixes bug #337331: "Status progress still doesn't animate"

    In general, the progress indicator bindings for animate and isDeterminate are totally unreliable. Giving up on them.

    Fixes 252733

    The status window's progress bar now animates even when indeterminate.

    Fixed 251010

    Fixes from Matt Stevens:
    "For background applications (menu bar, completely UI-less, etc) there are a couple of issues with Sparkle notifications:
    - When prompts such as the initial prompt to enable update checking are displayed they can be hidden behind other windows since the background app is not in focus. This can cause problems, as these prompts run modally and can stop the application from functioning without the user knowing why.
    - If the update notification window is displayed and the user clicks away to another application, the window disappears and there is no way to get it back since there is no other UI to cause the app to activate. In this case the update should probably operate as a standard window since it is effectively operating as the application's UI."

    Fixes bug 236235.

    Sparkle now gies visual indication that it's checking for updates when hte update's user initiated. ie: it pops up a status controller saying "checking for updates..."
    What was SUUserInitiatedUpdateDriver is now SUUIBasedUpdateDriver; SUUserInitiatedUpdateDriver now is a subclass of that, along with SUScheduledUpdateDriver. This is a happy little refactoring that let me remove some redundant code.

  1. Major refactoring, yay.

    Moved out installation phase to separate classes, separating packages and flat-file installs.
    Made the DMG cleanup less horrifying.
    All-around prettification.
    This may or may not break the world; please let me know.
