    Version 0.02 is out!

    Version 0.02 is out!!

    It has the preview wit plugin architecture, this way we can find and solve problems in a very easy way and now, everyone can develop his own plugin. When everything is more stable I'll post a quick guide on how to implement your own plugin. I hope we can preview almost all the files!!

    And remember, you can donate me some money

    What's new in 0.02?

    Hopefully that amount will have a good conversion rate, where you are from.

    Could you please also post a version for Gutsy (= Ubuntu 7.10)? Or could you please post the source package so us Gutsy users could compile our own binary release version?

    I don't feel like upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04 yet as it's still way too buggy for my taste. But it would be nice to have gloobus nontheless

    And same humble request goes for 64bit systems. Either package for amd64 or sources.
    Vera! Vera! What has become of you?

    Re: Gloobus, a QuickLook for linux

    The main reason of this new version is the plugin architecture, I've rewrited all the preview function and now it supports plugins.

    Plugins can have his own load, update and render function so it can be very scalable!!

    I'm from Barcelona (Spain), these days I'll be fixing a lot of issues, till now I just made it work to see what were the capibilities of it, now I very proud and I'm fixing a lot of things till version 0.03 that will have both gloobus and preview with plugin architecture.

    There should be no problem at all in compiling it for gutsy or 64 bits version, if you want to compile it and send me the binaries I'll put them on launchpad page (I have no gusty machine neither 64bits one) if you have any problem, please tell me and I'll try to solve it.

    Thank you all!

    I put 1000$ on chipIn widget to put something, you can donate the amount you want there is no problem about it or not reaching 1000$, I'm doing it cause I think it will be good to have a quicklook for linux, and since it takes me a lot of time, get paid is allways a great reward

    Thank you again!

    OK, but where are the source files please? And what libraries are needed? It would be nice if you could give a quickie overview of the requires packages and post the source code somewhere where we can easily find it

    Can you list the package names for those libraries please? I am sure there are many users out there who don't know that e.g. to get what you call "Magick++" they'd need to install "libmagick++10-dev" and so on. See what I mean?

    Please list the package names needed so people can copy & paste the list and "apt-get install" it, OK?

    I think this is a fantastic project, I hope to see it grow!
    I'll be putting up some suggestions on LaunchPad.

    Re: Gloobus, a QuickLook for linux

    I think I installed everything needed for it, but for some reason it doesn't respond to my keyboard, and after 3-5 seconds my computer freezes :S

    Can you list, exactly, what I need to make it work (using Ubuntu 8.04)

    edit: Got keyboard working, but it is EXTREMELY SLOW on my computer :S On windows, all SDL/OpenGL programs and stuff work just fine
