DLN Xtend podcast and AppImageLauncher

Recently, while looking for media coverage on AppImageLauncher which I might have missed before, I stumbled across DLN Xtend, a podcast spin-off of Destination Linux Network. They covered AppImageLauncher in a few episodes. Here’s my story with DLN Xtend!

Big milestone: AppImageLauncher 1.0.0 released

After more than half a year, the first stable version of AppImageLauncher has been released. This marks a big milestone in the software’s history, as up to now, a continuous release scheme was used without any kind of real version scheme.

Within the last weeks, a lot has changed about AppImageLauncher. Read on to see what’s new, and find out how to install it!

AppImageLauncher: Preparing for the first release

In the last weeks, Alexis Zubieta has been working on redesigning and refactoring AppImageLauncher. He’s invested a lot of time into restructuring the code base, designing new dialogs following the established workflow, and we’re almost ready to merge his changes.

Introducing awesome-linuxdeploy

We’ve started a little project on GitHub that shall serve as a central directory of plugins for linuxdeploy. You can find the list on GitHub: https://github.com/linuxdeploy/awesome-linuxdeploy

Contributions welcome! Please don’t hesitate to send us pull requests adding new plugins or other linuxdeploy-related projects to the list.

Pext: new and improved AppImage

This weekend, among other things, I was working on improving the Pext AppImage. Sylvia and I were spending quite some hours on making the Pext AppImages smaller, more efficient and provide improved desktop integration. Also, AppImages are now built using linuxdeploy, the universal AppImage creation tool suite, using the conda plugin to set up everything Python related. That plugin was actually inspired by the experiences I made during all the months it took to make the first AppImage build script.

(New) AppImage documentation

The AppImage project has never had a proper documentation. Sure, there were (and still are!) some wikis (most notably the AppImageKit wiki), but wikis, especially the ones on GitHub, lack any sort of structure. Recently, I could finally start to work on this, resulting in the (fairly) brand new docs.appimage.org.

New Blog

I decided to start a blog. It will contain announcements of projects I’m involved. Also, I might be posting about some recent topics or opinions. We’ll see.
