Jokosher fans, time for an update.
The 0.9 release was delayed for quite some time due to a nasty bug in Gnonlin which has now been fixed, and we awaiting the legend Hervey to make his Gnonlin imminent release with the fix in before we make our release. This delay has in-turn caused a delay in Jokosher development, but I have good news to share.
Jokosher HEAD is now unfrozen. Laszlo branched 0.9 and hacking is now continuing for 1.0. The roadmap for 1.0 is not decided on yet – there will be an IRC meeting to discuss what is planned sometime soon, but the main plans are getting the current current code mature and well tested.
We are screaming out for more people testing Jokosher, particularly the editing tools. When Edward release Gnonlin we are hoping to get some updated Gnonlin packages built for Feisty and then Feisty is an ideal platform for testing Jokosher – it includes the required version of GStreamer. If you are a Fedora bod, fear not though, Snecklifter has been working on packages for you folks too.
If you are interested in helping the Jokosher community, head over to our forums and get involved.
