I need to use GPG from an application again... I can't express how deeply I started to hate this thing by now, that horrible GPGMe API that never really does what you want and the passing of data via pipes to a GPG instance running in the background and the mixing of not-quite compatible different gpg1 and gpg2 versions with different errors and behavior...
Grr.

Yea, last time we needed gpg in an app we just used the go openpgp lib.

Oh yeah, I have been busy for the next AppStream release :-) All problems I was aware of are fixed, but I still have many more things on my todo list (including adressing all items from the spec-extension whishlist, making the Markdown converter public, adding a lot more unittests, ...).
But the 0.10 release shouldn't grow too big, and since the changes made were incredibly invasive, this should get testing as soon as possible.
In other words: 0.10 will be out soonish :)

The appstream-generator will properly render fonts now if they have a metainfo file (we can't synthesize one, since the font metadata is unreliable and often also incomplete).
Since Fontconfig is complete horror to work with in a multithreaded application, I am already thinking about refactoring the code to split off Fontconfig stuff to a separate process though.

If you want to know how the metainfo XML file should look like that you need to add to your font or font package in order to make the font show up, take a look at the AppStream spec/docs:
https://www.freedesktop.org/software/appstream/docs/sect-Metadata-Fonts.html
A software center can allow users to install additional fonts using font metadata. Also, applications can use font metadata to find missing fonts (for example, if a special mathematical font is needed) in the distribution's software sources. This metainfo specification describes how metadata for ...

Is someone with too much spare time out there? If so, could you please rewrite Fontconfig? ;-)

Writing new archive tooling for Tanglu and PureOS in D. The new code is at least twice as fast as the existing code and uses only half of the disk space. It also only does package synchronization for now.
To be fair, the change in speed is likely not only due to D being faster than Python, but due to the new code creating groups of tasks to be executed together, which is way more efficient.
I hope I can blog about the thing when I made it usable and added the missing features (only the smallest amount of features is there already) :-)

+Matthias Klumpp should we do a Tanglu theme btw? Or at least a colour scheme for Plasma for Tanglu?

AppStream 0.10 is out!
Less specification changes, but a lot of API changes.
I will blog about what's new in AppStream (mainly the specification) when I'm back from Akademy :-)
