Good thing of the day:
We released GStreamer
0.3.2 today, it felt good to get it released as we
originally planned it two weeks ago. Making release plans on
a free software project
is rather hard in many ways as you don’t really have a
control of what contributions come in when. The reason we
got delayed was not lack of code contributions, but due to
some much needed changes in the core leading to a lot of
the plugins etc. needing updating before release. So think
we got a good release in the end even if a reliable AVI
format support seems a little elusive. Hopefully we start
bundling the code of Avifile the next time and manage to
beat that snapshot and our plugin on top of it to be rather
sturdy if such a thing is possible with Avifile.
We finally have the mediaplayers working again now under
GNOME 2.0 and hadess seems to be getting
ready to make the first release of rhytmbox.

Bad thing of the day:
Geez, the interview Miguel did with the Register about his
ideas for GNOME and Mono intergration lead to a large number
of comments on Linuxtoday. A large part of them stupid and
rather misinformed as I have started to expect from the
crowd of people who think they contribute to Linux by
posting shit on message boards. Personally I don’t really
know what I think of Mono and its potential, but I believe
in Miguels right to advocate his view and I think he has
shown through his actions that he intentions are just. Of
course taking a reasonable stance is no fun for the crowd of
pundits crowding the message board.
