Asked by Leeman on 2010-01-15

I was looking forward to checking out the latest release, but there isn't one. How are things going?

Thanks for asking. It's not dead—but it is taking me a lot longer to acquire all the documentation that I need to understand the problem I am trying to solve. The next release of AllTray will not be available until I have close-to-tray working correctly, which I have yet to do and make work consistently without shared library trickery that limits what systems we can run on, or window-manager specific trickery that limits even what window manager users can (usefully) run with AllTray.

I did just acquire the X11 documentation books, which I have started reading (though they are heavy books, so it is slow going). I hope to find the information that I am looking for in these books, though it could take me a long time to find it. Honestly, if someone who worked on X.org or XFree86 came along and I could pick their brain for a few hours to try to understand what I need to do to get this working the way it ought to work, we'd have a new release out by now. :-)

I'm *hoping* to have it for Lucid+1, though I will of course make builds of new AllTray available for all then-supported Ubuntu releases when I release it.

Thanks for the interest and have yourself a good one!
