No longer at Fluendo

So as of today Wim Taymans, Edward Hervey and myself are no longer working for Fluendo. The same goes for Tim Muller who has been working as a contractor for Fluendo for a long time now. The reasons for us deciding to leave are many, but essentially I guess the time had come when we felt our prospects outside Fluendo were better than the ones offered inside. Our exact plans are not set in stone yet, but one likely outcome is that we set up our own company doing various kind of software and services around GStreamer, more on that in the coming weeks.

Wow, that’s unexpected.

Well, I wish you all the best of luck for the luck for the future. The work you guys have done on GStreamer has been phenomenal, please keep going!

And if this means you’re free to work on things like DVD playback now… ;-)

Can I be the first to say…..

ZOMG!

Best wishes to all of you, and I looked forward to seeing what you’ve got cooking. Hope it doesn’t affect Jokosher development ;) (Or, for that matter, Elisa and Pitivi)

[…] it’s good to know people care about Fluendo. It didn’t take much time after Christian’s announcement on his blog for people to deluge me with questions. So let’s save me […]

Good luck to you all. I hope things are OK between you and the Fluendo folks, and you’ll still be able to work together on great Open Source Softwares.
