Release notes

Added in this version:

For a detailed changelog, see commit history.

To see where this is going, see the temporary roadmap; you can request features on bug tracker, too. Every type of contribution is accepted.


First of all I want to thank Wikimedia CH for trusting the idea; without them Daty would still be a mockup this day. I hope that the global community, as the Italian one already did at the ItWikiCon Ideathon, will see the impact and the usefulness of a native editor, to please advanced users and greet new ones.

Of course I have to thank the GNOME project, which accepted the project on its infrastructure, and its developers, volunteers and contributors, who saved me from many headaches this month and before. I think it is a really great community.

Post scriptum

Unfortunately I was not able to pack all the planned features in this release. In any case I hope the work done can be seen as adequate by you readers.

Tasks that required more time than I expected were:

I want to stress on the necessity of this last point, since Flathub publishing implies immediate availability on 18 GNU/Linux distributions, while GNOME Builder integration makes contributing extremely easy. All this thanks to flatpak.
