Miro 4.0 status (roadmap)
lots of flux in git-master, but the code is stabilizing
working on metadata support, device syncing, performance enhancements, extensions, streaming to other devices (ipad, ...), ...
working on project infrastructure: wiki, nightlies, nightly runs of unit tests, ...
probably a release in April or May--we're working hard on it!
worked on testing over the week
worked on sikuli tests now that the ui is more stable
feels that things are finally coming together
worked on an upgrade problem with torrent directories
implemented Import Media dialog -- will talk to Nick about this to figure out UI issues
strings are still in flux, so it's not stable enough for translations
working on conversion bugs now
worked on P1 bugs
working on P1 bugs assigned to admin and taking bugs from other people
worked on scrolling issues and selection issues
working on a bunch of P1 miscellaneous bugs
worked on a ton of P1 bugs
did a bunch of ui stuff: item details pane, standard view, conversion item renderer
finished up magnet uri support
working on P1 bugs
Order of business:
Talked about how Miro does conversions and reworking it to fix some problems.
Talked about where we're at with Miro 4.0. Things are looking good. Bug data suggests we've reached a point of inflection where we're fixing bugs faster than new bugs are coming in. There are still a fair amount of P1 bugs to do, but it seems manageable.
git master is in pretty heavy flux right now and because of that nightlies are probably unstable--use them at your own risk. This will sort itself over time when there are fewer massive changes being made. If you're interested in testing, but don't want to test bleeding edge, then it's worth waiting until we hit the release candidate portion of the dev cycle. We're currently thinking that'll be in a couple of weeks.

Did you know there's a Miro User Manual? If you haven't looked at it yet, it's worth taking a look at. You can find it at http://manual.getmiro.com/.
