So now that Gutsy has been released, I’ve started thinking about 8.04 “Hardy Heron”. I know it’s soon for most users, but I know the developer types will be meeting for UDS in just a few days to start planning the roadmap for the next release, so it’s a good time for this post. I asked Hobbsee what the best way to go about getting personal wishes done (as I don’t have the coding skills to do them myself), and the response was “find someone who cares” - meaning, try to pique the interest of someone who has the skills and finds it personally interesting to them too, then try to work together to implement it. So, that’s what I’m trying to do - throw out some of the thoughts I have for things that can be improved, and my hope is that someone, somewhere will see each item and contact me, saying “Hey, that’s a good idea; let’s talk”. I’ll start with something relatively simple - here goes!
Affects: Drivel (Desktop blogging client for Gnome)
The issue: Currently, it is only possible to indicate a single post “category” within Drivel. As the regular readers of my blog will know, I often have multiple categories. Therefore, I would like to see the simple dropdown available now replaced with a dropdown that has checkboxes rather than just a flat format. If someone can tell me how to make mockup screenshots perhaps that would better describe what I’m thinking of, but you get the general idea.
