This looks like a good candidate for being the best build system ever:

No, +Dirk Hohndel , I'm not at that level of discourse, luckily :-) While I linked to those few lines of text to give a very rough first impression of Meson, I also read more about it and watched the presentation that its author gave, with all the rationale (and humour).
Coincidentally, Jussi Pakkanen was my colleague at Canonical, but for some reason never spoke about Meson internally in the company. I think that if he had done that, maybe at least some of our projects would be using it.

+Filippo Cucchetto I didn't try QBS yet. It's hard to compare QBS and Meson because they are completely different. Being a Qt guy and a QML lover, I tend to like QBS more. But Meson has all the right cards to win a more generic spectrum of developers.

Let's try this :-)
 
I just release the first version of "Imaginario (dev)"; that's the development version of Imaginario, where the latest and greatest features (and bugixes, cough cough) will be available first. It's supposed to be updated more often than the stable version, and yet I'm committing to keeping it on a high quality level to make at least sure that it won't corrupt your data.

It's in the stored as a paid app, with the minimum price I was allowed to set. The point of making it paid is to give me a stronger incentive to continue developing it; while the application price will never cover the development costs, at least it's a strong signal from the user: "we want to you continue working on it!".

Well, I'll continue working on it anyway, since I enjoy it a lot, but hobbies come and go, especially when I've tons of projects in my mind which I'd like to eventually pursue. :-)

Elizabeth Joseph began as a Linux hobbyist and now works as a sysadmin on HP's OpenStack infrastructure team. Here's her inspiring story:

How good is the GPS module of this phone? I've already a mediatek and the GPS is slow as hell in finding signal and most of the times it fails.

Dear Lazyweb, can you give me a reason to buy a dedicated WiFi adapter instead of sharing the wireless connection via an otherwise unused phone (Nokia N9)?

Hah, apparently this is solely a Czech product o_O

It's "WELL WRC5010N" and unfortunately it requires a standard wall plug. Here's a link (czech shop) --> http://www.joyce.cz/kategorie-0502-wifi-routery/9-well-wrc5010n-wifi-n-router-150mb-2-4ghz-1x-3dbi-fixni-360a328.html

This looks great. The fact that each and every picture must be imported manually through content hub is a real bummer for this use case though. I wish there was a way to grant an app permissions to permanently access ~/Pictures.

About a week ago I silently released Imaginario, a native photo manager for Ubuntu Touch.
I've now prepared a bit of a web page to describe it and to present a roadmap of what I plan to implement next.

The long term plan is to build also a cross-platform desktop application based on the same code base, and it will be similar to F-Spot, a program which is now undermaintained but which still rocks.

+Folmer Fredslund No, the code is written using very different technologies (Shotwell is written in Vala, while Imaginario in Qt+QML), so I couldn't use any of its code. But I had a look at its source code to find out what EXIF tags it's reading and writing, in order to achieve maximum compatibility when moving pictures from one app to the other.

Just how cool is that?
We have just had the latest version of our SeaNav US iOS app rejected by Apple because we support the Pebble Smartwatch and say so in the app description and meta-data (we also state in the review notes that "This application was approved for use with the Pebble MFI Accessory in the Product Plan xxxxxx-yyyy (Pebble Smartwatch)".

+Alberto Mardegan It is not even about making mistakes. With their prophet dead, they either end up blindly following rituals he established (and slowly losing audience) or stepping away from the path (and quickly losing audience). We have seen them do #1 during the first years after prophet's death. Now, with iWatch, plasticky iPhones, and fat iPhones, they are doing #2.

Wow, looks like Scotland has more developers than any other European country! ;-)
http://stackoverflow.com/research/developer-survey-2015

(and vim gives a serious beating to emacs, sorry guys!)
Where do developers live? How much do developers earn? Vim or Emacs? Tabs or spaces? This is the most comprehensive software developer survey on earth.
