Satisfaction!


After a long time trying to find a way to feel good doing what I've been paid to do, finally it's clear on my mind. I don't mind about work with free/non-free software. What moves my motivation is another thing: I only want to do something useful, useful for me, useful for people ... in a large scale. Unfortunately, I didn't have this possibility in any place I've worked for.

Okay, it's time to search for something better ... :)

Libosinfo 0.2.0

All the work I did during this summer, as a GSoC student, in libosinfo was released yesterday. Yay!
Here is the announcement done by Zeeshan Ali (Khattak):

"Libosinfo 0.2.0 is out!

Introducing a new set of APIs to enable application developers to easily create
unattended/automated installation scripts for various operating systems.
Currently only Fedora and Microsoft Windows are supported. Also provided is a
commandline tool, 'osinfo-install-script' to easily create such scripts without
having to write any code.

Other changes since 0.1.2:

- Fix build against mingw64 toolchain.
- API for getting product logo URLs.
- Fix architecture for a Windows 2008 media.
- Remove bogus minimum storage information for Fedora.
- Add varirables for system and local database paths in pkg-config."

Moreover, I've been working on libosinfo to add AvatarInfo (current task) and improve the replacement that will be done in Gnome Boxes.

See ya!
