Announcing gtk-v4l version 0.3

First a bit of background,
This year mid January hans de Goede wrote a mail on fedora-devel list proposing an idea for a gtk Video4Linux preferences applet, which would allow people to control their v4l web cams.
His original intention was to provide it to his students to work on as a project. I also asked him to let me work on it and since none of his students were interested i started work.

So for the last 6 months i have been working on this in my spare time and its time to bring release 0.3 to general public. There has been a lot of changes from the earlier release 0.2 which is packaged for fedora as well as ubuntu.

Here are some of the new features:
- Hot plug support
- Ability to control write-only properties like pan and tilt.
- Completely re-factored code.

I am working on rawhide and F13 packages for the same, so keep tuned.

PS: Thanks to Hans de Goede for all his help in re-factoring the code.

Hello World!

So i have been thinking of blogging for several months now, i even started a couple of blogs, but it seems somehow they get abandoned.

I either don't get time to update them or they just get forgotten, i hope this does not happen with this blog. I am going to use this one to keep the world updated about open source projects which i am working on and other stuff going on around me.

So seeya soon :)
