Dev call April 13th, 2011

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

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 May or June--we're working hard on it!


  • Worked on bugs across Miro: device bugs, ui bugs, sidebar bugs, ...


  • Finished working on close/destroy implementation issues which took a while.

  • Continuing to sync translations, run tests, peer review code, triage bugs and all that.

  • Wrote up a bunch of bugs that were complex where i wasn't able to reproduce them several days later. It's possible there are flux issues involved, but this concerns me.


  • Worked on a bunch of bugs and got sidetracked into import progress updating issues.

  • Planning to work on tableview selection issues going forward.

  • Put in a request for better comments in the code and better checkin comments.


  • Made changes to list view column sizing for OSX and GTK.

  • Working on P1 bugs going forward. Half of the P1s are selection issues. Will coordinate with Ben on fixing them.


  • Worked on a bunch of P1 bugs for ui stuff, crashing bugs, daap bugs, and some other things.


  • Worked on P1 bugs.


  • Doing a lot of Miro testing.

  • Focusing on verifying bug fixes. When she does this, she adds additional tests to Sikuli and Litmus so we'll catch regression issues.

  • Fixing Sikuli tests in regards to ui changes.

Order of business:

  • 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.

  • Miro is developed by a community of people including you! If you can't contribute your time and work to development, testing, and translations, please consider contributing funding by donating. Your money goes directly to ongoing development of Miro and related projects like Miro Community and Universal Subtitles. See for more details on these projects.

  • 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
