One week ago, Jochen Breuer announced the reintroduction of a famous website, isfreyareleasedyet.com. The concept is very simple, yet addicting. A counter shows the number of remaining bugs for the next preview release of elementary OS Freya with Launchpad as the source. Just bookmark the site, probably on your phone too and you can check out the progress easily everywhere you are. And don’t forget to hype again, when the number goes down.

New way to support the elementary project

Earlier today Daniel Foré, one of the heads of the elementary project, introduced the possibility to donate on a monthly base with a new website powered by “Patreon”. Supporters can become “patrons” and donate a specified amount of money automatically every month. For now, last problems had to be cleaned up he says with his Google+ post, but in an undefined period of time, as soon as enough patrons are found, they even want to hire developers.

Brief news summary

  • Fedora 22 Alpha is going to be released next week, no word on the Pantheon port which is targeted at this release. Probably the developers gave up with packaging.
  • Still no Ozon OS Beta release, but it is getting very, very close. Writing about competition in the Linux world is pretty hard, as it got misunderstood by some.
  • The elementary StackExchange page is already in “Commitment”. That means it is pretty close to completion. You can also help, if you want.
