Delays delays delays :(

Hi there

As you may have noticed, BlueDevil RC4 is not out (yet), and there is a reason for that.

We’re mainly 2 developers working on it, ereslibre and myself. Ereslibre is studying hard because he has like 5 exams in 2 weeks, and I’m looking for a new place to live downtown (still in Madrid), so those things are stealing our KDE hacking time :(

But don’t worry, BlueDevil development is not paralyzed, luckily our company (ufocoders) is allowing us to work on BlueDevil all Fridays, and this is why we’re moving the releases to that day.

The current TODO list until 1.0 final is:

  • i18n
  • A few reported crashes
  • Better audio plugin
  • Documentation for distributions
  • Make kio_obexftp stable (this may involve a rewrite, or maybe wait until kde 4.5.2)
  • setup bluedevil.kde.org.

This time, I’m not going to write a date, since we can’t be sure to accomplish it, but we want to release the RC4 in 2 weeks more or less.

Cyap and sorry for the inconveniences!

Taking a break

Hi there

Even if we don’t want to, our brains need to rest, they need to disconnect from everything and break with the routine of every day, and this is for what the holidays are for.

So tomorrow my actual vacations start, I will be in Paris (again :p) having some family time for a week. I will be online on irc/jabber and I will try read my email everyday but do not expect a quick answer.

At the airports/planes I will probably give some love to Kamoso, with a bit of luck we can do a release some time soon.

See you!

Ps: My next entries will be boring things about my vacations, so be ready for that :)
