Jonathan Protzenko: Shutting down my (now redundant) comm-central clone on github

ti, 22/04/2014 - 09:33

This is just a public service announcement: I'm shutting down the comm-central repository on github I've been maintaining since 2011. Please use the official version: they share the same hashes so it's just a matter of modifying the url in your .git/config. Plus, the official repo has all the cool tags baked in.

(Turns out that due to yet-another hg repository corruption, the repo has been broken since early March. Since no one complained, I suspect no one's really using this anymore. I'm pretty sure the folks at Mozilla are much better at avoiding hg repository corruptions than I am, so here's the end of it!).

Instantbird: Google Summer of Code 2014 has Commenced!

mo, 21/04/2014 - 21:00

Instantbird again has the pleasure of participating in Google Summer of Code under the Mozilla umbrella. In the past we’ve had a variety of exciting projects and this year is no different. Three students will be working with us this summer:

Saurabh Anand (sawrubh), mentored by Patrick Cloke (clokep), will aim to add support for reliable file transfer to Instantbird using FileLink as a fallback to standard file transfer.

Mayank Kumar (mayanktg), mentored by Benedikt P. (Mic), will be adding voice and video support to Instantbird by integrating WebRTC for XMPP. WebRTC makes it easy for us to have real-time communication without the use of additional plugins.

Nihanth Subramanya (nhnt11), who last year added the “awesometab“, will be looking to improve loading of conversations and history under the guidance of aleth. He will work on adding the ability to search across all logs of a contact and loading the previous context of a conversation when scrolling (“infinite scroll”).

Please feel free to stop by #instantbird on irc.mozilla.org to say hello and congratulate our students! Thanks again to Mozilla for allowing us to participate in Google Summer of Code with them!
