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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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.



  • Worked on Miro Community stuff over the week.

  • Talked about infrastructure for the MC services.


  • 2.5.3 looks like a pretty good release.

  • Tested Will's torrent-related fixes--looks good.

  • Testing Luc's subtitle work. Found some bugs with the subtitle code and older versions of OSX. Otherwise, it's looking good so far.

  • Talked a bit about Miro Community testing. We have a few volunteers helping, but there's still work to do.


  • Worked on subtitle stuff. Happy to see people are starting to test subtitle-enabled builds.

  • Worked out some bugs so it now works on 10.4, 10.5, and 10.6.

  • Working on getting subtitles working on Miro on Windows with VLC.

  • This is coming along nicely and we decided it should land in Miro 2.6 so we're going to move the work to the master branch.


  • Reworked Miro on Windows to use a packaged binary kit.

  • Switched Miro on Windows to use a pre-built libtorrent from the binary kit.

  • Planning to do the same for Miro on OSX.

  • Pushed out a set of Karmic packages for 2.5.3, but they aren't well tested.
