From issue #8:

Given the amount of people that have recently started using Maid, I'd like to start making beta releases before making stable releases.

For now, please just leave a comment bellow so I know you're interested. During the next release, I'll coordinate a beta test by notifying you (via an @mention). Details on how to install, etc. will be given then.

@benjaminoakes:

Great. 😄

just as additional idea regarding #3

in case you'll ever consider using/setting up a ppa for ubuntu-users - it might even make sense to split it into 2 ppa's.

  • stable builds
  • unstable builds

I know that approach from other projects (Clementine is a lovely example) - and it makes splitting up stable/unstable pretty easy from user point of view. But then again - ppa's are pretty ubuntu-specific.

@macfidelity I'd love to do something like that. Like I said, since I'm using Ubuntu more and more, I'd really like Maid to be a first class citizen, if possible.

Thanks for sharing your idea! I think it could work well with the RubyGems approach too...

I'm in and I'll work on a couple of the issues as well.

Great. I think the roadmap will be:

  1. bugfixes (maybe combined with update-deps), probably to be called v0.1.3
  2. simple-tools, probably called v0.1.4, unless there are interface changes, then v0.2.0

The timeframe is roughly "when they're done". 😄

First beta test: #52

Great! You're volunteering at a great time as beta testing of v0.2.0 is underway. Please see #71 for more details.

New beta: v0.2.2.beta.1 (mostly bugfixes).

See #95 for details.

@benjaminoakes

@nicoritschel Are you interested in the betas as well?

@nicosuave

Yup, I just got started with all that. I spent some of the afternoon wiping RVM in favor of rbenv so I will get some ruby 2.0 goodness up and running as well. I'm loving rbenv (after recently nearly committing RVM suicide).

@benjaminoakes

New beta: v0.3.0.beta.1. See #101 for details.

On a related note, work is progressing what's currently being called v0.4.0. Thanks to everyone who's made pull requests! I'm hoping another beta will be right around the corner. 😄

@benjaminoakes

After much adieu, a new beta is out: v0.4.0.beta.1

Thanks everyone for your help on this! Now that we're settling into our new house, I'm hoping to have more time to devote to open source.

@benjaminoakes

Maid v0.6.0.beta.2 is out! Lots of exciting changes, such as new daemon support.
