Turpial 2.0 alpha 1 available in devel ppa


It seems like old news, but Turpial 2.0 alpha 1 is available in de turpial-devel ppa for quantal only. It comes with many features and a new approach. The core libreary is a python wrapper that provides support for identi.ca and twitter, it is called libturpial. It is ideal if you like python and you need a library for playing with microblogging APIs.

The new interface provides more flexibility as it uses webkit wrapped in a gtk frame. It also provides integration with unity. It needs more Message Menu integration. but the future looks pretty bright, as Turpial 3.0 will take what is learned with the WebKit features and start developing native solutions to all the platforms it reaches.

Turpial has gathered forces and now is looking to take over the world, Please do help in making this happen if you have love for the little oriole that can certainly be big.

I personally think Turpial is still lightweight but needs more polish and testing, bugs are welcome. If you install this version, join the mailing list for support.

Keep an eye out for more updates soon.


It's the best time... The Time to Party

It is the best time definetelly. After al lthe hard work with new features, translations, bug fixes, lots of packaging, testing and much much more, we are reaching the end of this cycle and what better way to celebrate than to gather with old friends and possibly new ones too. It is a great chance to network and share experiences. It is a time to celebrate not just another release, but our sense of community and our long standing commitment to bringing the best of free software to the world.

Organize a Release party in your city. http://loco.ubuntu.com/events/global/1995/detail/  and also make sure you post pictures so that they can be shared with other Ubuntu Local Community Teams via the LoCo Team Portal

Rock till your socks drop :)

DíaDev: Ubuntu Global Jam in Maracaibo

I am pleased to report that we have enjoyed a special day las saturday. In Maracaibo, this is the second time we participate , but I dare say that nothing like this. We have learned many ways to participate and we kept busy reporting errors, Reviewing the functions.


We had Hangouts with Laura Czjacowski in London, who took the time to share how She started to colaborating with Ubuntu. Osledy Bazó, Arllette Chambers and Arlette new to contributing learned from Laura's interest in participating in the projects. I am very excited at the oportunity presented

Daniel Holbach shared another hangout straight from Germany to share some ideas on some questions we had Ubuntu Distributed Development. Daniel did a demo with Turpial  as an example of how to build a package using bzr and launchpad, Daniel found the package interesting as it presented some very unexpected results, we will work together. An educational experience. You can check that hangout entirely here


Responded lots of bugs in launchpad and tested the distribution. and we also had the  usual Pizza and had a really good time with friends. Looking forward to the Release Party :)
