I’m not dead, just working

Hi there

I have been quite busy these days, between Akademy and everything. So thought about writing a small blog entry with the status of the projects where I’m involved:


I’m sorry guys to announce it in that way, but KBluetooth is almost dead. I’ll release a new version (0.5) trying to fix all the crashes we’re having, and it will be everything from my part. I hope to release that version withing this week.


We have ported kamoso to vlc1.1 (you can get the code from the proper branch), and it is working quite well. I’d like to release a new (last) stable version which won’t crash when the application is closed. After it we’ll concentrate our efforts in stabilizing the new code, getting it too work perfect with vlc 1.1.1.


I did almost nothing for 4.5, but I’m planning to do some maintainer work for 4.6, closing bugs (yees! the pepperoni bug too), and I’ll try to remove the "blinking", but I don’t know how (yet) :p


Well, tonight (in 8/10 hours) you’ll have news about this one :)


Yay! I’m planning to join the group of crazy developers that works on NetworkManager+KDE, the first task I’ll try to accomplish is the removal of Solid::Control, for now, I’m reading code code and more code, and I’ll do that until I’m able to paint a "virtual map" of what is currently implemented. I don’t have a date for that.

See you in 8/10 hours with a surprise (a known one :p)

    WRT KBluetooth, what do you mean by “almost dead”? It means that it has no long term future at all, or simply that there hasn’t been much time for it lately?

        Try getting into a buisness school may be terrible, and you’re not even guaranteed a place in the consultant checked out you while your diploma. The statistics are alarming: Wall Street has lost 34,000 jobs, and that four percent of MBA graduates to highschool job security consulting buisness last year (from twenty to four percent five years ago). but to establish a buisness school of the first order that you might over-sized elevator to succeed in the summit itself.

    Oh, I feel so better now :D
    BlueDevil is a daemon which manages the bluetooth
    From the post I didn’t get this little detail :)
    So.. KBluetooth will “evolve” in BlueDevil
    Bluetooth in KDE is still alive and kicking butts!
