Time for a new Nanonote release!
This new version comes with several changes from Daniel Laidig: you can now use Ctrl+mouse wheel to make the text bigger or smaller and Ctrl+0 to reset the font to its default size.
He also fixed the way links are displayed: they now use the theme color instead of being hard-coded to blue. If you use a dark theme, this should make Nanonote more usable for you.
Nanonote now speaks German, thanks to Vinzenz Vietzke.

I just released version 1.2.0 of Yokadi, my command-line todo-list.

Several interesting changes landed in Nanonote recently, time to release version 1.1.0.
There are a few fancy indentation improvements: pressing Tab when the cursor is at the beginning of a list item now indents the whole line, making it fast to create sub lists. Thanks to Daniel Laidig for this contribution. Conversely, pressing Enter on an empty list item now unindents the line, then remove the list bullet.
URL detection has been improved to allow the
~ characters. This should greatly reduce the number of partially highlighted URLs.
The application is now available in Spanish and French, thanks to Victorhck for the Spanish translation.

I recently configured Travis CI to build Nanonote, my minimalist
note-taking application. We use Jenkins a lot at work, and despite the fact
that I dislike the tool itself, it has proven invaluable in helping us catch
errors early. So I strongly believe in the values of Continuous Integration.

The first release of Nanonote, my minimalist note-taking app, was a bit rushed: I broke indentation shortly before tagging version 1.0.0... meh.
So here is version 1.0.1. It fixes the indentation and adds the ability to indent or unindent whole lines with Tab and Shift+Tab, in addition to the existing Ctrl+I and Ctrl+U shortcuts.

Here is the last issue of release month! Today is the first release of Nanonote, a minimalist note-taking application.
Quoting the README:
It automatically saves anything you type in the screen on your disk. Being minimalist means it has no synchronisation, does not support multiple documents, images or any advanced formatting (the only formatting is highlighting urls). If you have long-lived notes you should store them in a more permanent place.

Another weekend, another release! This one is special. You may remember a few
years ago I created a burger game for Android: Burger Party. At that time
I had plans to generate some revenue through this game. After investigating the
different revenue models, I sadly concluded I would have to include ads.
That did not work out (surprise!): at its peak Burger Party reached a few
thousand installations, which generated a meager $30 of revenue. I guess the
reasons for this failure was that:
1. There were not enough ads to make it work: I decided against permanent
banners so the game only displayed interstitials between levels, and no more
than one ad every two minutes,
2. It did not reach enough installations, marketing is not my forte.
I also never felt comfortable with the idea of one my personal projects being
ad-based and proprietary. I kept telling myself I should remove the ads and
release a new version of Burger Party as free software, but I never got around
to do it...

Here is another release for the release month! This time it's a new release of
Pixel Wheels. This one has been a long time coming: version 0.10.0 got
released in September.

Continuing on this release month idea started last week, here is a release
of another project. Today is the first release of qpropgen, a tool to generate
QML-friendly QObject-based C++ classes from class definition files.

December just started, and this year I want to try to do something a bit similar to advent calendars: make a new release of one of my (too) many projects every weekend! This release month begins with the release of Doxyqml 0.5.0, an input filter to let you document your QML code using Doxygen.
