First, congratulations everyone with the 1.0 release.

I'm currently working on a mediaplayer plugin and have an initial version of 
PostgreSQL support done.

For the mediaplayer, I already got collection scanning done and will start 
with the web interface soon, I also hope I will be able to implement Ampache's 
XML API so media players who support that (Amarok) can use your media 
collection directly from the cloud.

The work PostgreSQL support was for the biggest part porting the database 
creation from mysql/sqlite specific queries to an database scheme xml file and 
MDB2_SCHEME, the actual PostgreSQL support was very little code thanks to 
MDB2, but both things need a lot of testing.

As fir the OCS API, I think it will be useful if it gets extended in a way that 
it can be used for a distributed login system (like openID), but I'm not sure 
what the best approach is.
