Work in progress

Work on the file server component has begun, but this definitly will be a lot of work - and very frustrating, too. The problem is, that there is a huge gap to be filled, covering several components, like the client to file server protocol, the server peer protocol, client access to the local cache, synchronization of the connected file servers and such. There is still some system design to do, but it looks very promising yet. Currently I can't say, wether the real design needs of these components will affected the planed release periode. First, the design has to be finished, after that the needed time can be estimated. Initially, I planed to create a slim implementation of the file transfer for a self updateable client, but now I'll implement the whole thing at once. This should save a bit of development time, but makes the thing noticable more complicated.
