ANNOUNCE: Tomboy 1.6.0 Released (new stable release)

Hi Everyone,

Earlier today we released Tomboy 1.6.0, which coincides with GNOME
3.0.0. This release has been a bit quieter than past releases and
contains mostly bug fixes, documentation updates and translations.

Tomboy has been branched as "gnome-3-0" for stable (1.6.x)
development. Git master is now open for new feature development
(1.7.x).

What is Tomboy?
==================================================

Tomboy is a simple personal note-taking application designed to be
unobtrusive and friendly, while supporting inter-note-links similar to
a WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas.  It can run
either as a GNOME panel applet or a notification tray icon, and is also
supported in your Windows tray or Mac OS X dock.

Re: ANNOUNCE: Tomboy 1.6.0 Released (new stable release)

When I went to download version 1.6.0 I saw that the Mac version was 
1.5.2. This was a little confusing as this is the version I've had for 
quite a while on my Mac. Wouldn't it be better not to group different 
versions together? That is if version 1.6.0 is only available for 
Windows and Linux, why lump them with 1.5.2 for Mac?

Re: ANNOUNCE: Tomboy 1.6.0 Released (new stable release)

Exciting news! I see from the maintainer list that we now have a
tetrarchy of maintainers holding the reins for Tomboy, would you like to
give a little introduction of yourselves? Just so that we know if you
have separate areas of responsibility and such, like for example who
should I notify of the fact that the News column on the Tomboy home page
has got the date of the two top items mixed up? ;-)

Best of luck on this grand and glorious adventure!

Because I'm a noob and couldn't decide what to do. That's a very good point. When Sandy rolls the Mac binary, I'll update the web page with 1.6.0, and next time if we're missing the mac binary upon release, I won't include it if it's not ready.
 
Thanks!

Hahaha That would be me. Thanks for pointing that out. I was in a bit of a daze yesterday when I was staring at the HTML.

No, thank YOU for taking care of this. When Sandy announced that he wasn't going to be able to continue in charge I was afraid support for Tomboy was in question. I'm glad that the continuity of this great tool is guaranteed thanks to people like you!

About Me - New Maintainer

I am a home-grown IT consultant. As probably most of us, I started in
computers at 13 and had my first real job as a paid IT person at 16. I
have always been consulting in the Novell and OpenSource space and
believe strongly in making Software work for Business's.

In the last few years I have moved into the development space with C#
and Java. I use Tomboy daily and have wanted to contribute for a while
now.

I would like to see more Tomboy adoption and I hope I can help. I
believe the modal "powerful, but simple" is best.

My role as Tomboy Maintainer will be to handle the NEWS item. Plus
hopefully some patches :)

Re: About Me - New Maintainer

I'll just continue the trend here.


I'm Greg (grepory in IRC). I'll be helping out with release binaries when necessary, maintaining the web site, updating wiki content, and working on bug fixes and features (hopefully). I've been somewhat active on Bugzilla for the last year, and am trying to become even more active all-around.

I'm a student at Auburn University in computer science doing research in distributed computing, cryptography, and security.

I <3 Tomboy.

I'm on Twitter, and have a poorly-maintained blog:

Tomboy 1.8 Planning

Hey everyone,


We're starting to plan the Tomboy 1.8 release. We're thinking of meeting on IRC this weekend sometime during the times listed here:


Feel free to respond to the survey and let us know when you're available during those times. We'll announce the meeting time on the mailing list when one is settled in the next couple of days. Feel free to read the forwarded thread and comment, suggest, etc... and sorry we didn't start the discussion here sooner. ><

Sundays are rarely open for me until after 8pm Central Time. Saturday
I could do. Or you could continue without me. I can also do during the
week easily enough.
