I guess I actually should write it somewhere, not as an announce, just to leave a memory about this day. Today I've published my first ever pre-pre-alpha-pre-betta-don't-use-it-yet-it's-not-exactly-ready release of my #xmpp messenger #squawk.
I feel so insecure about it - there is so much I don't know, so much I'm not sure I get it right, I'm not even sure If I fulfill all the requirements for AUR package, so, it might be even removed by those who check that repo. But even so I feel proud. It is definitely a milestone for me. What else is a personal blog for if not this sort of things?
And yes, it's surely not even close to be ready - I've never even tried to run it with other locales and other color themes but it works, and users of #archlinux can even try to install it from #AUR
What's next? I wan't to find volunteers to try it out, to solve building and installation issues, to see how it looks on non #qt environment and make it look acceptable on each installation, to finish file uploading feature (don't click that button to attach - it doesn't work yet!) with the guys from #qxmpp project, and then it's going to be first real release of 0.1.0.

P.S. that's how it looks now
