colord-kde 0.2

Daniel released colord-kde 0.2 today. I’m really excited about the amount of progress he’s made in such a short amount of time. He’s has had a bit of rough ride with the loss of his daughter last year and this year he’s been hacking on colord-kde and PackageKit and trying to make open source a better place. If you’ve got a spare couple of dollars this month, he’d really appreciate a donation to buy hardware to test things on.

I was a strapped-for-cash geek myself a few years ago, and I know how hard it was to develop software when you don’t have the right hardware. I donated $25. Donate here. Thanks.
