So far I neglected writing about this year's Google Summer of Code. This ends with this post. As last year, I'm working on GNOME DVB Daemon.
In the last couple of weeks I concentrated on the user experience, thus making setting up devices as easy as possible. I made a short screencast that shows the new assistant started by the Totem plugin.
Update: Apparently, I used a too recent version of libgee when generating the release tarball. Therefore, gnome-dvb-daemon 0.1.6 doesn't compile with libgee 0.1.5. I just released version 0.1.7 which fixes this problem.
After two months since the last release I'm proud to announce GNOME DVB Daemon 0.1.6.
I really like the recent efforts to streamline the work towards GNOME 3.0. I'm in favor of all points on the roadmap. Especially the point about re-designing gnome.org. That's a task that is overdue for a long time. Hopefully, the re-design points out why GNOME rocks and makes it easy for interested people to find a way to contribute. What I'd love to see is a way to search API docs like gotapi does.
Yesterday I released version 0.1.4 of GNOME DVB Daemon. This release features mostly bug fixes and a timer icon is displayed in gnome-dvb-control if a recording overlaps with the event. Furthermore, a help message is displayed if no groups are configured.
