Gwibber 2.0 upcoming   5 comments

I have been working maintaining the Gwibber package on Gentoo for a while as a proxy, piteously, it could not get the main tree over the 0.7 version, but it is actively maintained on my personal repository at Gitorious. But what is Gwibber? for all the people who don’t know what is it, this is the definition given in it’s main page at Launchpad:

Gwibber is an open source microblogging client for GNOME developed with Python and GTK. It supports Twitter, Jaiku,, Facebook, Flickr, Digg, and RSS.

What is microblogging? you are invited to check Wikipedia (click here) for a better definition. Twitter,, etc., are networks where you can post tiny commentaries (less than 240 characters) but it’s completely adictive (it keeps me away from posting to my blog :/ ), you can follow any number of persons just adding them to your account, and, if your commentaries are interesting, other people will add you to their accounts. Actually Gwibber supports more networks than that definition says.

Last days two good things happened, the first was the dev (neurogeek) which does the commits for me went back from his vacations so newer versions of Gwibber will be available on the tree, the second is the upcoming of the 2.0 version with a new UI (commented by @BUGabundo), right now Gwibber looks like this:

Gwibber 1.2.0

Forget the missing icons I was hacking it a bit and lost them 😛

Any time soon Gwibber 2.0 will arribe with new UI, new functionalities and of course new networks to join, here you have a picture of what it is gonna be:
