Time for a quick update on Lernid, a little program I have been writing to make it as easy as possible to get involved in online Ubuntu events such as Ubuntu Open Week and Ubuntu Developer Week. This is how it looks right now:
Here is a summary of the recent changes:
- Better Classroom – the main classroom view now ditches the embedded web IRC and instead uses Telepathy. It has better scrolling and layout and importantly, is read-only, reducing the chatter, joins/parts and other fluff that clutters a session in the main classroom channel.
- Translated – Lernid is now available in Arabic, Asturian, Catalan, Czech, English (Australia, Canada, and United Kingdom), Esperanto, Filipino, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish and Swedish. If you want to help translate Lernid, click here!
- Improved Layout – I cleaned up the interface a little and tidied up some dialog boxes.
- Fixed Bugs – a bunch of different bugs have been fixed and it is feeling much more solid now.
My plan is to fix a bunch of remaining bugs and then upload Lernid 0.2 to a PPA so you can all try it. I am keen to get a simple yet stable verion ready for Ubuntu Developer Week.
You can find out more about Lernid on it’s Launchpad page.
