New BluePad website and FOSDEM 2008

So, after all the beautiful girls asking me and Valério when would we release a new version of BluePad and resurrect its website, we decided: Oh well, they’re so cute, let’s do it!
And voila! There’s a new version of BluePad’s website, plus, the new SVN version works on Nokia s60!!! That’s right, now you can use it with all those fancies phones.

Valério is also giving a lightning talk on FOSDEM about BluePad, how cool’s that. I hope next year we’re keynotes 🙂

I am also going to FOSDEM (thanks to my company BitRock, by the way) so feel free to come chat a little if you want and say bad things about my website. I’ll give you a hunch on how I look like: I am the one in glasses…

BluePad SVN version (v0.3)

As requested by many users, BluePad has now a SVN repository and a mailing list.

This way you can always check the latest things in BluePad’s development and add yourself to the mailing list and communicate with “BluePad people”. Also check the forums on BluePad’s SF.net page.

So, what if “I-am-not-that-geek-and-I-don’t-really-know-how-to-work-with-SVN” ?

To download the SVN version of BluePad all at once (don’t forget to install subversion first in your GNU/Linux box):

$ svn co https://bluepad.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bluepad

This way you’ll get a “bluepad” folder with the project “trunk” within. In the trunk you find BluePad for PC and for Mobile folders.

In case you want to download each of BluePad’s parts separately (to get the mobile one into Sun’s WTK for example):

$ svn co https://bluepad.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bluepad/trunk/bluepad_mobile

 

$ svn co https://bluepad.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/bluepad/trunk/bluepad_pc

After you’re all happy with it for several weeks and wanna upgrade to an eventually new version, just do the following when inside a project folder:

$ svn up

And you can live happy forever with this app “Made in Portugal”.
