ANN: GWorkspace 1.0

User-agent: GNUMail (Version 1.3.0)


Christmas, in Anno Domini 2021.

This is a different announcemement than usual, since it is a special release: it is tagged 1.0 after many years of work. It is different, because it is a personal writing. The last release has been long ago, but many refinements and improvements came in; there has been a person who spurred me improving and working on GWorkspace: Bertrand Dekoninck.

Hard times were the past two years and they have not been easy and the pandemic is not yet over, so in the Christmas Eve, a new release of GWorkspace has been done and it is dedicated to Bertrand: so shall he be remembered from us GNUsteppers, he, who had not the privilege to live till Christmas with his family.

A reserved user who really gave the sensation to be interested in GNUstep and its applications, thus, especially GWorkspace. Continuously he proposed contributions, tested, always gentle, collaborative: a friend. I will miss him, we will miss him. Betrand, as me, worked also on PowerPC - so it was inspiring to know that supporting that Big Endian platform was useful! After the pandemic, I wanted to meet hi8mfor a hacking session, but it will no longer happen on earth.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
