The first publically announced version of Woodchuck, a download manager for delay tolerant data, such as blogs, podcasts, email, social network updates, weather reports, and calendaring data has been released. Woodchuck aims to save battery power, manage data caps and hide spotty network coverage and high latency. It does this by monitoring network conditions and user behavior and, when conditions are good, tells applications (starting them if necessary) to perform an update.

Binary packages for the N900 are available:

Woodchuck requires application support. To gain experience with the
API I've ported FeedingIt, an RSS reader:

The author of the application would like to offer help to people that would like to port their applications to use Woodchuck. Extensive documentation of the API, the glib-based C library, and the Python modules can be found here:
