Our first alpha release

Hey all !

Today we are very proud to announce the release of our very first version of Macaw Movies! If you don’t know what this is about, please read our previous post.

You can find the download the application there:

Bellow are a few screenshots.

Be aware that this first version is an alpha version, meaning that some bugs are still present, even though we’ve been testing it a lot.  Please fill out a bug report on our Github tracker if you find one. Also, feel free to give us feedback if you think Macaw Movies is worth it (or not!).

We hope you’ll like it as much as we enjoyed creating it.

By the way… it’s open source: contributions are welcomed!  The project is documented, though we are still working on making it more comprehensive.

The sources are still available in our GitHub repository and on kde-project.

Macaw-Movies in the KDE incubator

Hey there!

We are proud to announce that from now we are incubated in KDE…

Macaw-Movies is a movie collection manager. It is now about to be in the KDE Family! And that’s really awesome.

[Edit: As we are often asked  I add here that we speak about movie files. No DVD, BlueRay…]

It was a little sprint, and we must say that KDE sysadmins were pretty fast and our supporter of great help. In one night, we created a mailing-list, opened an account on Planet KDE and another on the git repository.  We haven’t opened an account for the project on the bug tracker yet and still use GitHub for now so our code is currently duplicated between GitHub and the KDE projects’ repository.

Now, we are seriously thinking of releasing a first version. It’s far from being perfect, and there is still a lot to achieve to release what we are really dreaming of, but it’s slowly coming! It already compiles on Linux, Microsoft Windows and MacOX. The program can fetch a movie metadata from Internet thanks to the API of themoviedb.org.

Here are a couple of screenshots of the application: the main window and the dialog to edit the metadata of a movie.

The documentation is slowly being written… but the code is already documented =D

Have fun and give a hack!
