Dev call 10/20/2010

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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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 3.5 status (roadmap)

  • did a Miro 3.5 rc3

  • fixed some bugs, but we're ready for a release

Miro 3.5.1 status (roadmap)

  • there will probably be a 3.5.1--I want to wait until after 3.5 is out to figure out the details.

Miro Community 1.1.2 status (roadmap)

  • Asheesh is the new MC for MC

  • working on bugs


  • Regression testing Miro 3.5 rc3 all week long. Some bugs, but everything is currently fixed right now.

  • We have had new people testing Miro 3.5 rc3 through Litmus which is really great.

  • We've been tracking downloads for rc3 and it's looking ok, but we would have hoped to have more help testing.


  • Wishes we had more quantified Miro 3.5-rc3 testing. That would make him feel more comfortable with where we're at with the release.

  • We have a list of things we should look at and/or fix for Miro 3.5.1.

  • Migrated our developer stuff from trac to mediawiki. (Sent email about it.)

  • Updated the Miro User Manual for 3.5.


  • Working on metadata for Miro 4.0.

  • Mutagen is working out really well.

  • Working on figuring out the ui and db components for metadata storage, viewing, and possibly editing.


  • Spent the last week and a half spending quality time with getting Miro on Windows to recognize USB devices.

  • Got it working on Linux. Now working on getting it working on Windows and OSX.


  • Reworked configuration for Miro 4.0. (Sent email about it.)

  • Planning to work on performance tuning for Miro 4.0.


  • Started working on Miro Community this week.

  • Also working on building the Miro community (lowercase c) so that there are fewer barriers to entry and it's more inviting.

  • Got his Miro Community system working and is now working on bugs.

Order of business:

  • Talked about where we're at with the Miro 3.5 release. General consensus is that we're ready.

  • Talked about id3 metadata bits and storage.

  • Talked a bit about device syncing.

  • Talked a little bit about streaming to external devices and Miro streaming apps. Paul had looked into DLNA possibilities to allow external devices control and stream content from Miro. Options look to be either writing our own DLNA system, or adding Twisted/Twisted.Web as dependencies and using an exisiting one. The iPad guy wants to do this in Bonjour.
