Released Webcamoid 5.1.0 and going to the next step.

Yesterday, I've released Webcamoid 5.1.0. This release includes many improvements and changes, the most important changes are:
  • From now on, Webcamod will be developed using Qt5. Qt4 can be considered as an obsolete technology.
  • Dependency reduction. This makes the program easy to port to many platforms with minimal effort, reduces the bugs caused by 3rd-party libraries, and reduces the disk usage.
  • Webcamoid born as a KDE plasmoid, but since KDE is in transition from Qt4 to Qt5, and Qt5 plugins aren't compatible with Qt4, I must remove the plasmoid. The development and survival of Webcamoid is a priority.
  • Webcamoid for Windows is near. Only a few patches are needed. This is necessary because Webcamoid adoption in GNU/Linux is not going so well (people seems not to be interested and I don't know why), and this strategy can give a boost to the project.
And now let's see what comes for the next release (Webcamoid 6.0.0).

So, in this post I will teach you how to compile QXmpp with full codec support in Windows :)

Camicri Cube: Descarga de paquetes offline para Debian, Ubuntu y Mint

Cada tanto me llega alguna consulta a mi mail preguntándome sobre Sushi, huh?, muchas veces me preguntan por algún bug que quedó remanente. El problema es que en estos momentos estoy muy ocupado con el desarrollo Webcamoid y proyectos similares, y con el poco tiempo que tengo disponible, no puedo dedicarle tiempo a un proyecto minoritario.

Así que aquí les presento un programa para todos aquellos que necesitan descargar paquetes para sus distribuciones.
