On vacation

Things have gotten so busy around here ever since FocusWriter exploded in popularity after the 1.3 release! When I started writing open source software I never imagined my programs would gain such a following. I’m incredibly grateful to all of the people who have helped spread the word about them, translated them into other languages, donated, and generally helped to make the projects as successful as they’ve become.

That said, the increased traffic means I need to do two things:

  • First, I’m taking a break. I’ve been working solidly on Gott Code projects for more than a year, and I need a vacation. 😛 I’m planning to take a few weeks off.
  • Second, I’ve been getting so many emails that I can no longer to respond to all of them individually. If you send me a feature request, or a bug report that needs no follow-up, you can be assured that I have added it to its respective list and will work through the additions and changes as I get to them. Obviously, not every feature request is going to make it into the program, and even if it does it could take a few versions because I have so many plans. But I do consider every request I receive.

Alright, that’s it for now. See you in a few weeks, folks!

    Another think: The site (or app) can have a link/tool to anybody send themes. A repository/gallery or something.

    Its a good form to popularized more your app.
