As some of you might know, I had to finish my Ph.D. and it took me a lot more time than previously planned. I’m happy to tell you that it is now finished. I’m officially a doctor in the field of applied mathematics, and I have more time to dedicate to free software.

One of my first goals is to release the sleeping code for yzis. There sure are a lot of issues with this code, and the KDE kpart is still unfinished, but I think we can release basic, working, tested applications. This would mean the curses-based nyzis and the qt4-based qyzis, both for Linux, Mac OS X, windows, and maybe some other platforms like the *bsd.

We created a project on freehackers redmine project manager to handle this new development. We expect to release 1.0-alpha1 next week-end (june 22th), and keep on testing/fixing bugs until 1.0. Then we should focus on the real fun stuff : kpart and other embeddings.

Oh, and, meanwhile, we moved the code from subversion to mercurial.

  1. ST says:

    Well, i am really happy to hear that. Given the fact that i switched to KDE because of the ill fated kpart vim. I am really really happy. Thanks and good luck.

    Also congrats for your Ph.D.

  2. We still need a little bit of time to provide the component, but soon, soon…
