Dev call March 9th, 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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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 starting to stabilize

  • 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, ...

  • past the codefreeze--switching to mini-deadlines for important functionality.


  • got a lot of ui overhaul stuff done: main display, item details widget

  • lot of other things to work on


  • worked on ui overhaul stuff: top chrome, sidebar tweaks, and investigating complex issues

  • working on Amazon stores-related things


  • picked up OSX titlebar bug

  • worked on sharing issues and tidying up the code


  • worked on tablist issues and list view columns


  • worked on windows build environment issues

  • worked on magnet uri support and landed it today

  • worked on resume playback changes


  • worked on paypal payment system for MC tiers

  • worked on the POV theme

Order of business:

  • Talked about associating Miro with magnet uris; the problem is that magnet uris require a protocol association, so there's nothing in Miro that currently does this. The other problem is that the different platforms have different conventions for associations. Jonas is going to create a few tickets and we'll figure out what to do going forward.

  • We're pushing on P1 bugs--going to give mini-deadlines a break for a week.

  • git master is in pretty heavy flux right now and because of that nightlies are pretty unstable--use them at your own risk. This will sort itself over time when there are fewer massive changes being made.

  • Miro is developed by a community of people including you! If you can't contribute your time and work, please consider contributing funding by donating. Your money goes directly to ongoing development of Miro and related projects. 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
