# Gummi; the simple LaTeX editor
Welcome to the new official home for Gummi. It's good to be back. I've decided to make a short FAQ to answer some of the questions you may have had while the original website was offline.
# Gummi
The simple LaTeX editor

[![Build Status](https://travis-ci.com/alexandervdm/gummi.svg?branch=master)](https://travis-ci.com/alexandervdm/gummi)
##### Are you going to continue development?
Yes, I will start working on a new bugfix release right away. No release date yet, but it shouldn't take long to fix some of the minor existing annoyances.
### Installing
Gummi is available in the official repositories for most mayor platforms. Please check your package manager for availability or refer to our wiki for more details.
##### What about implementing feature X?
Unfortunately other projects I am currently working on take priority for the time being. There are some architectural aspects about the Gummi codebase that make popular requests like improved project support difficult to implement properly without some major reform. I'd probably do a complete rewrite of Gummi in Python or Vala if I had unlimited time, but unfortunately our reality does not work that way ;) - That said, I'm hopeful that this move to Github will bring in new contributions.
### Screenshot
##### Is there ever going to be a non-beta release of the Windows version?
That depends if someone wants to pick up the work. I have no personal interest in the Windows platform, and as noted before.. limited time to spend on Gummi development. If you're up for the task, let me know and I'll do my best to help you.

##### Where can I find the documentation that was available on the original website?
### Building
The documentation, written by Guy Edwards, is now available as a Github wiki [here](https://github.com/alexandervdm/gummi/wiki). The menu link in your current version of Gummi may however still point to the wrong URL.
Building Gummi requires a working C compiler and some dependencies to be installed on beforehand. For detailed instructions and our list of dependencies, please refer to our documentation.
