Hi G+me users and G+ community,

In the last update I mentioned that there were changes in the javascript engine that made Huy realize that G+me has some serious problems. Well Huy had identified what those issues were and has solved the toughest problem which was related to the changes in Chrome 17.

Huy is not able to work on G+me today but after tomorrow he should have more time to work on G+me and "possibly" finish it in a few days.

Aside from fixing G+me, we have also discussed for G+me to have a new logo. I am currently putting together a plan which I will announce on the G+me page, for which I will announce very soon when it is created.

Thank you

G+me Community Manager

Hello, deluge of emails! And howdy old friends.

So G+me is completely broken. (I'm pleasantly surprised that it took that long to completely break.) But let's try to fix it. I've been out of touch for quite a while, so it would take some time to catch up with everything. I'm thinking that I need to get up to speed on the most relevant changes to Google+ since October in order to get basic functionality back up.

But I'm a bit ignorant these days about Google+. What's going on over here? Whoa, hello YouTube icon! What's with the new notifications? What, Obama is gonna hang out?! What's the State of the Google+ Union?

So G+me users, what order should I do things? Read months' worth of posts directed at me? Fix some specific things? Maybe someone has a link to a post that already discusses the recent changes that broke extensions? Maybe there are already other extensions out there that are good or even better substitutes for G+me? What should I know?

The G+me Community Manager, +Lily Nguyen, is working with me, including helping me read up on G+ developments, go through notifications, sort out bug reports, handle requests, etc. So expect either one of us to reply to you. That way, I can focus on coding.

Good gravy G+ suuuuuuuuks without this extension working correctly. If there is only one thing fixed it would be the auto-collapse posts. That saves my bacon.

This goes out to fellow Sydneysiders.

If you're interested in Google+ extension development and want to hear how I developed G+me, both using the Google+ API and hacking the undocumented DOM, come to Google Sydney this Tuesday and say hi.

Thanks to +Gary Miller and +Johno Scott for organizing.

Hi G+me users and G+ community,

We have not forgotten about try'na get #G+me back up and running again. We want to make sure that we are communicating our progress/status to you because you have been very loyal users.

Here is where we stand today:

Huy updated himself with all the changes to G+ in the past few months. Familiarizing himself with the changes Huy started fixing some of the G+me code. There were some progress but it's taking longer than usual because changes in the Chrome JavaScript engine that made Huy realize that G+me may require a re-architecture.

Don't worry Huy will deal with that later. Right now his priority is to get it working. Hang in there a little while longer, I will update you in a few days.

I missed all the fun because I like to be asleep at 5:00AM (UTC -4), but I wanted to comment that just like +Lucas Burruel, hangouts always make my machine run way too hot. Usually it's about 78°C for just a couple of people, but I bailed on one with five or six people when my poor machine got up to 86°C. Bleh.
