Hi Everyone,

This email is to announce Tomboy 0.14.1.  This is a release of the
stable 0.14.x series and coincides with GNOME 2.26.1.

Tomboy has been branched as "gnome-2-26" for stable (0.14.x)
development.  SVN trunk is now open for new feature development

What is Tomboy?

Tomboy is a simple personal note-taking application designed to be
unobtrusive and friendly, while supporting inter-note-links similar to
a WikiWikiWeb to help you organize your notes and ideas.  It can run
either as a GNOME panel applet or a notification tray icon, and is also
supported in your Windows tray or OS X dock.

The next six months...

Some tentative plans for the next release cycle include:
* Automatic synchronization
* Faster startup, less memory usage (we've only just begun!)
* Better OS X experience
* Brainstorming for how Tomboy should fit into gnome-shell
* A new project to have easy synchronization to a Tomboy online service!
* Tomdroid, and how to have the best sync story to have Tomboy notes on your G1
* Tomboy website revamp
* Your awesome ideas!

But we haven't had our roadmap meeting yet, so we'll see what the community
decides during this public meeting [0] on Tuesday, April 21, 2009 at
19:30 UTC in #tomboy.
