October miscellany

It’s been a wild October!  It started with us releasing Geary 0.4 and Shotwell 0.15, and then a whole lotta more stuff happened.  Some quick bits regarding the past four weeks (or so):

Montreal Summit

I’d like to extend my (belated) thanks to everyone who organized and hosted the Summit this year, it was a great event!  Thank you Savoir Faire Linux for organizing everything and CRIM for hosting all of us.  Lots of familiar faces and some new ones too.  In particular it was good to hear about GTK/GLib things to come, like GNotifications and a formal model for GtkListBox, both things we’d like to take advantage of in Geary.

Montreal is a beautiful city and fortunately I had a chance to explore it before the Hackfest opened.  I’m pleased to report that while there I enjoyed what sounds to be the Montreal culinary trifecta: bagels, smoked meat, and poutine.

We’ve moved (physically)

Yorba resided in San Francisco’s Mission District for over four and a half years, but the time has come for a change.  We’ve been selling off furniture, cleaning off desks, and boxing up things for our big move, which happened today.  Fortunately the move was painless and quick, and we’re now settled in our new office on the hairy edge of the Financial District down the hill from Chinatown.  (We celebrated finishing the move with a great meal at Henry’s Hunan; go see this fellow, who has eaten and reviewed every item on their menu to teach himself Tomcat.  That floors me for a lot of reasons.)

Unfortunately the preparations for the move has taken our attention off of patches and coding, but that should soon change now that we’re settled.

We’re moving (virtually)

Coincidentally, Yorba is also moving virtually — we’re transitioning from our self-hosted server to (tada!) the GNOME infrastructure.  Yes, soon all of Yorba’s projects will live under the GNOME umbrella.  We’re starting small to work out the kinks, but by the end of the process Shotwell, Geary, Valencia, and gexiv2 will be available at gnome.org.  More information coming soon as things firm up.

  1. Will Shotwell continue to be competing with other Gnome Photos or will only one of those projects survive? (If so, please let it be Shotwell!)

    1. Competing in a loose sense of the word. We believe Shotwell and GNOME Photos have somewhat different goals. I think it’s quite possible some users will want one and not the other, and that some might even use both depending on their workflow.

  2. Does this mean you will use gnome’s bugzilla? I kind of find your redmine instance much nicer to work with when reporting bugs.
