v1.1-rc is out now! This release adds support for storing and displaying project images. It also adds visibility settings for projects.

Therefore, we are unable to provide binary builds at the moment but we will do so once the situation is resolved. If you are looking for binary builds in the meantime, you can can use our Tübix builds which are almost identical except for the sample database.

Back from Linux-Infotag Augsburg

Yesterday, we attended the Linux-Infotag in Augsburg and presented our project both in a 45-minutes-talk and on our stand.
