[Mono-announce-list] ANNOUNCE: Tomboy 1.0.0 Released (new stable release)

Hi Everyone,

Earlier today we released Tomboy 1.0.0, the first release of the
stable 1.0.x series, which coincides with GNOME 2.28.0.

Tomboy 1.0.0 represents not only six months of work since our latest cycle
began, but five years of work since Alex Graveley made the first check-in to
Tomboy CVS.

This release is dedicated to Alex for creating such an incredible tool,
Boyd Timothy for all the time he put in as co-maintainer, and everyone
who has contributed patches, documentation, or translations, sent bug reports,
helped others on the list or in IRC, written blogs and articles, or even
just stopped by to say "thanks" and remind us why we do this. :-)

Tomboy has been branched as "gnome-2-28" for stable (1.0.x)
development.  Git master 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 Wiki 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 Mac OS X dock.

The next six months...

Some tentative, overly-optimistic plans for the next release cycle include:
* Access your notes everywhere with work on Tomboy Online, Tomdroid, etc
* Automatic synchronization
* Note sharing and collaboration via Telepathy (*nix-only)
* Better OS X experience
* Customizable simplified note UI
* A new innnovative workflow for simple task lists
* Rethinking notebooks and search
* More performance work
* Brainstorming for how Tomboy should fit into gnome-shell
* Your awesome ideas!

But we haven't had our roadmap meeting yet, so we'll see what the community
decides during this public meeting (date and time TBD).

Big Thank You
