… thanks to Ahmad Zawawi:
Nothing ground-breaking, but some nice new features in MonoDevelop 2.8.
MonoDevelop is for me one of the IDEs Padre can still learn a lot from …
Interesting piece about the threshold for contributors from different cultures.
Also some good comments, e.g. from Donnie Berkholz:
… the same things important to increasing contribution from high-context cultures are *also* important to recruiting and retaining contributors in low-context cultures. Relationships and integration into the community trumps everything.
I fully agree. The Padre project is doing things the right way here. There is a Code of Conduct and a Diversity Statement, the community is open and welcoming, development is public and transparent, developers are spread around the globe (Germany, Israel, Jordan, Australia, Turkey, the Netherlands, Brazil, France …) and people from the project (in particular Gabor) go to events and talk to people in person regularly. And that makes a difference. A lot. I think I use Padre exactly because I met Gabor and Sebastian (sewi) last year at CeBIT and they got me interested again in that nice editor/IDE thing …
So guys, keep up the good work, both on the code and the community.
Some additional LaTeX commands and environment types are supported, and the plugin is compatible to the latest Padre version.
Get it while it’s hot!
Of course it lets you autoconnect to IRC servers and channels. Because the irssi FAQ is a bit complicated (they do not start with the most simple case …), I describe how to auto-connect to the Padre IRC channel.
/SERVER ADD -auto -network perl irc.perl.org
/CHANNEL ADD -auto #padre perl
Last week, Gabor published a screencast on how to create a basic plug-in for Padre. Today I will continue a little bit along that direction, and give an example for a plug-in that improves handling a certain file type in Padre.
It is mostly a maintenance release, providing compatibility to the recently released Padre 0.86. Breno G. de Oliveira (GARU) was so kind and provided Brazilian Portugues translations. We now have translations for Arabic, Dutch, German, Spanish, Italian, Brazilian Portuguese, and Turkish. Besides that, there was a small tweak in the autocompletion code. See the Changes file for details.
If Padre is already on your system, you can install the LaTeX plugin using the command
I am looking forward to feedback and contributions, either directly to me, or as tickets to the Padre Trac.
