Coders are not the only contributors

August 19, 2008

Eugene Trounev (also known by his nickname it-s) is just a great guy. Yesterday evening, I implemented the jigsaw puzzle support in Palapeli, and today, he commited some puzzle shapes. Also, Palapeli does now have a decent scene background. Both can be seen in the following picture:

I’m pretty sure that this won’t be the only background included in Palapeli. GHNS support for puzzle table backgrounds seems like a viable option to me, besides a rich default set of backgrounds.

Eugene’s efforts are a great example for that coding is not the only way to contribute to KDE. Therefore, I invite everyone to get creative: May it be code, graphics, sounds, or a nice booth or presentation at your local Linux event. Everything helps. (By the way, I will release Palapeli 0.2 tomorrow. I planned to do that today but I want to have these new graphics included.)

    I’ve been following the development of Palapeli and it’s great to see it mature. Are you accepting wished features yet or is it too soon?

    Thank you for your work! 🙂

    Feature requests are always welcome, as they might influence the way I build up the program’s architecture.
