A belated happy first birthday to my beautiful daughter. It’s been a fantastic year.


Since then it seems like I’ve been sick most of the time. Instead of doing something useful, I’ve taken to fidding on a re-write of my Agave colorscheme designer, and I’ve made a decent amount of progress. It still lacks a lot of features of the original, but it benefits from my vastly better grasp of gtkmm and related technologies. I still don’t know if I’ll ever actually get around to releasing it. It’s currently serving as a way for me to relax and take breaks from my other projects. It’s become sort of a playground for me to try out new technologies, and I think I’ve succeeded in making it nearly impossible for normal users to build as it requires quite a few very new or unreleased libraries (goocanvasmm, giomm, glibmm-utils, etc).

Here’s a little screencast of what I’ve done so far:

I’ve set up a repository on github for anybody that’s interested in playing around with it.

Also, I’ll be taking over some glibmm maintainer duties from murray after the 2.16.0 release.
