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.[Read More]
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.

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.
