Lernid 0.2 Released

I am pleased to announce an early snapshot release of Lernid: a little program to make connecting to Ubuntu learning events simple. Lernid is still very much in development, and still needs lots of work before it is ready for our next event, but I have had people badgering me for a package, so here it is. :-)

You can get it from my PPA by running the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonobacon
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lernid

This release fixes a bunch of bugs, includes some further layout improvements, and completes the plumbing on the first-cut of the Telepathy driven classroom IRC pane. Lernid has been translated into 27 languages, but we currently have a bug in displaying them. This should be fixed in the next release.

A few screenshots:

    Some ideas: – The “Schedule” aera seems a bit too big to me, when already in a chatroom. – Ability to keep a http links history from the classroom would probably be handy. Maybe in a menu (or even dropdown menu) somewhere? – Sharing a picture gallery could be nice too. Maybe the lernid client could display one picture at a time, that the teacher could choose/change to display some infos or charts just as an Impress presentation.

    “still needs lots of work before it is ready for our next event.” When is the next event? Will you be making your most up-to-date release right before that next event? I’ll wait until then: I’ve already got the preview to google Wave running on google chrome unstable browser running on Lucid 😀 I guess that is enough pre- alpha-betas for now.

    There’s a mistake in “Help->About”. You put “http://www.launchpad/lernid/” which doesn’t exist.

    I notice that its calendar starts properly on Mondays, something regular Ubuntu can’t do without hacking, replacing and recompiling mystical locale files. I like! :)
