Happy April! Here’s a quick Ubuntu Server GUI development update to keep us all in the loop.
Progress in 2012 got off to a slow start after a number of family matters took my attention away from coding. Thankfully in March I had some time to make some great development strides.
The codebase is shaping up nicely and all the major engineering hurdles have been cleared. At this point it’s a matter of assembling the first set of features together and packaging everything up!
I’ve gotten a tremendous amount of feedback from user surveys and I’ve been using those to help guide the first set of features. I’m trying to keep the first release as close to a “minimum viable product” as I can while still delivering enough to lay the foundation for an awesome set of GUI tools for Ubuntu Server admins! Keep the feedback coming!
I’m also working on finalizing the dock and other key interface icons. Here’s the first potential dock icon that’s been created.
Let me know you’re thoughts on it. I’m still trying to decide whether or go with it or have another designer take a shot at it.
Hit me up in the comments or on twitter with any questions. “Just ship it” and other motivational tidbits are always welcome!
