Lernid Karmic Daily Builds Now Available

Thanks to the awesome Nathan ‘nhandler’ Handler, we now have a daily builds PPA for Lernid. This means you can run the unstable, daily, crack-of-the-day version of Lernid and have it delivered automatically right to your desktop. Currently it is built for Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala, and you can suck in the goodness by running:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:lernid-devs/lernid-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lernid

When you have run this, a new Lernid package will regularly appear in Update Manager. :-)

As ever, do bear in mind that this is unstable software: it may well crash and burn. More details on the PPA are available on it’s Launchpad page.

In other news, I have re-factored the interface a little to make better use of space in the top portion of the window – we now have a Schedule and a Browser tab:

Also, thanks to David Planella’s awesome patch which fixed the translations not being loaded into Lernid, we are now shipping with an awesome selection of languages. We do need your help to get these translations finished though, and it is as easy as typing translations into a website. Take a look at the languages that need translating and if you need help, take a look at this page.

Finally, my current goal is to get Lernid fixed up ready for an official 0.3 release. To help with this I have been filing bugs targeted at that release. Please do go and test Lernid and file bugs that you find here. :-)

    I suppose it’s excusable that Lernid is small, but tbh I hate it when my 5min to compile program has to wait in the queue several hours for firefox daily, webkit dialy, chromium daily to be built. Those things take ages.
