The new emerging NLE for GNU/Linux
September 2018

Our annual report on the progress of Lumiera lists a number of elements contributing to project increment and the general status of the project.

September 2017
November 2016

While there’s been a long pause since our last news report, a lot of coding activity happened “behind the scenes”. Read more in our recent 2016 Development Report

November 2015

We published the next »preview release« 0.pre.03
We did a lot of library and platform upgrades recently, which need to be reflected within package definitions and buildsystem. This “release” is relevant for developers only; we still have no user visible changes yet. As usual, we upgraded our Debian packaging and rebuilt the package on various distributions, to spot build problems and verify compatibility…

August 2015

The reference platform for Lumiera has been upgraded to Debian/Jessie. And the Language level has been raised to C++14. As usal, Lumiera core developers will meet at and after the FrOSCon conference.

May 2015

The existing Lumiera user interface has been switched to GTK-3.
Besides some clean-up, this prompted more activities in the area of GUI and workflow recently. Read more in the 2014/15 Spring Coding News…

August 2014

Benny has compiled a small 2014 Summer News Report —  As usual, Lumiera team will meet again at the FrOSCon conference at Bonn/St.Augustin (Germany)

May 2014

the Lumiera core developers will visit the LAC Linux Audio Conference in Karlsruhe/Germany. As we did some years ago at Utrecht, we’ll help again with the Video streaming. And of course we’ll use the opportunity for a in-person developer meeting.

After this conference, Benny Lyons has written the 2014 Spring News Report

April 2014

The Lumiera code base has been switched to C++11. Additionally, we’ll support also compilation with Clang from now on. The transition to C++11 didn’t impose any serious problems, since we’re employing a modern coding style right from start. After the switch, development will benefit especially from the new features rvalue references, auto type inference and constexpr.

August 2013

while preparing for FrOSCon, we collected and merged several documentation contributions. Thanks to Benny Lyons: here is the 2013 Summer News Report

Some images of our meeting and excursion can be seen here…

May 2011

a bit late…. but here it is: the Winter Coding News.

March 2011

We can now provide binary Debian packages for the first time, allowing you to install a development preview/snapshot without compiling, on Debian based systems (e.g. Ubuntu). But don’t get too excited — you won’t see any new features on the GUI…

January 10 2010

NoBug version 201001.1 has just been released. This new version, with lots of improvements (also the support for non-Linux systems) is now a requirement for Lumiera. On the release there are still some pending bugs meant to be shot down in the next few days (just now the testsuite fails).

CALL FOR TESTERS - We are looking for people using MacOS, BSD, OpenSolaris or any other variant of a Unix-ish OS (Posix systems for Windows, Cygwin, SFU, …) available for a short test session over IRC. Volunteers, install gcc, git, valgrind (if supported) and contact cehteh at #lumiera on Freenode.
