Looking back at 2011

Where are a few hours away from ending the year 2011 (some countries are already in 2012) so I feel like it is the perfect moment to look back at what happened during 2011 so tomorrow I can write what I hope will happen during 2012 :)

If I had to sum up in one word what I have done this year in KDE I’d say BlueDevil. In the first entry from 2011 I’m asking for help on testing the 1.0.2 version, now 12 month later we are ready to release 1.3 which fixes “all known bugs” and we are preparing ourselves for 1.4 and 2.0.

Let’s take a look month by month on what happened in this blog:

 

I’d say this year has been quite intense in the KDE front, I have done less than I wanted (which is normal) but more than I expected so I’m happy with the result. Also it is worth to mention that I’m now “Solid Overlord” though I haven’t done much yet I know for sure that 2012 will be the year to amend that.

Happy new year 2012 which for sure, Is going to be a good year for KDE as it was 2011 :)

Quick status update:

Hey! long time no see :)

I have been moving from Madrid to BCN, cities which are around 650km away and that is keeping me busy because I can’t neglect work time for doing it and even if I could the process put pressure into your head so you spend more time procrastinating than before. Nevertheless the moving is almost complete and I’m going to be using more and more time in KDE.

In what I’m going to use my KDE time:

BlueDevil:

  • Finish 1.3 release
  • Bug triage, fix’em all
  • Fix a known bug in Wizard
Kamoso:
  • Setup an environment where I can work with latest camerabin2
  • Finish Kamoso port to camerabin2
libsolid:
  • Make sure that MTP devices work well in KDE
  • This may include write a MTP kio
Screen Management:
  • Finally start to push code into a scratch repo
  • Having something functional by 4.8 release
I think I’m going to focus in the latest (Screen Management) because is the one most people is waiting for and I’ve failed to deliver in a reasonable time.
This is it for now, see you!
