Non scrivo molto nè sul blog, nè su facebook (ed ho i miei buoni motivi, vista la monnezza che si vede in giro sui social network).
Visto che mi si da pure dell'idiota soltanto per esprimere i miei dubbi, direi che quando ci vuole ci vuole.
Another couple of weeks, another major release!
This time with more interesting features I hope.
First of all, now Touché is a KDE only application, no more dual releases with Qt-only version. Of course, this may disappoint someone, but this allowed me to add some nice new features, like Global Shortcuts for profile switching.
And profiles themself were improved too, both fixing small problems, and adding a "Default" profile, when no other profile is available.
update: with further reading of rEFInd website, I could find a better way to specify more options with only one menu entry. The configuration section was subsequently updated. This blogpost comes in handy mostly if you have an EFI system (Apple Macbook, but also some Intel based desktops and laptops), and you need a portable USB stick for emergency booting.
Hello folks? Back from vacation?
I am, and so is Touché, with a second major release!
The most important change in this version is the addition of profiles, meaning you can have multiple bindings configured for each device, and you can switch them by context menu.
This release also features many code reworks, GUI and backend fixes and refactorings opening the way to future new features.
As i wrote some days ago, I planned on doing some hack so control KStars with a Wiimote. It turned out KStars isn't the right target, as it seems to have no plug-in support (and I don't want to modify core yet, as i'm still in an experimental phase). But reading data from wiimote and correctly interpreting was already done some days ago, thought it was a little bit hard, so I switched to Stellarium instead. This is the result: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhVHJJaQ8Gs
Just a quick update: after some years of inactivity, i've decided to go back into KDE hacking.
These years have been quite good, moving in Milan, working in a great agile team full of people i really love working with, but i really missed KDE community, open source, and c++ hacking.
So i'm taking advantage of my nearly one month vacation as a kickstart, hoping to be able to keep enough free time for KDE after being back to work.
Apple: un passo avanti, 10 indietro (come al solito).
All'arrivo dei nuovi macbook aziendali (perchè usare un mac in azienda, poi?) mi sono meravigliato di un notevole miglioramento del sistema operativo più antipatico e chiuso del mondo: una volta ripartizionare la partizione di sistema di OSX era veramente complicato. Oggi invece è possibile farlo anche dallo stesso sistema operativo: innovazione non da poco, credo che su linux si possa fare solo con btrfs.
After a week or so of both developing and testing, I am finally able to present a fully featured 0.1 release!
A lot of work has been done, comparing to the first "proof of concept" version.
Most notably, a configuration user interface!
Here's the full changelog:
