With our 3 timezones (Nagoya/Paris/Montevideo), it's hard to know what
"tomorrow" means...

To be sure, I manually updated the last source code snapshots. They
include the URL corrections for 2 demos (blm_color... and
m_quasi_euclidean...) and lots of changes:

(from the changelog)
    * common javascript code
    * input credits
    * config file handler for non-string types (bool, int, float)
    * refactored archive handling
    * fail-proof build
    * new input sets
    * gzip shortcut
    * streamline filenames in templates
    * various demo improvements
    * various style improvements, typo corrections and bugfixes

I just proceeded to a big update of the public versions of the demos,
available on http://www.ipol.im/pub/demo/. And as a reminder,
http://demotest.ipol.im/ demos are just source development snapshots,
here for tests and exchanges between authors and developpers, not
intended for public use.

And, last news from the hardware front: the new server is still
waiting, the installation is blocked by a network config issue and the
installation of its rack has been reported byu Dell to december
19th... So, we will probably have to wait until January for
* the new demo server with 32 cores (max 64 threads)
* the recycling of teh current demo server into a development machine
  for everyone...
