Dev call August 31st, 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 It's likely this is out of date and not representative.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 status


  • talked with Janet about translations

  • worked on gtk/gstreamer overhaul


  • working on sharing feeds and podcasts--now merged

  • fixed some bugs in Miro

  • worked on figuring out the future of the build boxes


  • worked on WinSparkle-related changes


  • fixing problems with the metadata extractor


  • away for a few days

  • working on getting the gtk/gstreamer overhaul stuff Will did running. gstreamer on Windows seems to require directshow and that somehow requires 3d support which sucks on VirtualBox.

  • will continue working on gtk/gstreamer overhaul

  • will continue working on itemfilter branch

Order of business:

  • We might do a 4.0.4, but only to fix issues with Miro Mobile.

  • Talked about process questions:

    • moving the Miro repository to Github

      • Will and Paul will work on moving the Miro repository to Github

    • Ben wants to start doing one-on-one developer chats

    • we want to change workflows to require more peer review

      • Ben will create a peer review qiki page

  • 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 .
