Fritzing gets a new maintainer, ongoing development plans #Fritzing

On the Fritzing GitHub, Kjell Morgenstern announces they are taking over maintenance of Fritzing:


As announced in #3435 , I am taking over maintenance of Fritzing for André. My C++ / Embedded development / Robotics background is a good start, but I am not alone. Together with the help of the people at Aisler and @ovidiub13, a developer with KDE background, we plan to release a fresh build of Fritzing in the near future.

So, this is a short term roadmap, limited to the minimal things to get things rolling.

April/May 2019

  1. Add CI for Linux, Windows and Mac targets
  2. We will create a test release 0.9.4alpha , since toolchains and many other things have changed, and we need to verify that processes still work on a all platforms.
  3. Reduce the number of open issues, by closing issues which are too old, no longer valid, or just to low in priority as “No fix, please re-open if you disagree”.
  4. After alpha, we will roll out 0.9.4b to the download section.
  5. Update developer wiki: Align better with git-flow, rebase all pull requests before merge, only accept PR if CI is green, check basic coding style…

June/July 2019
8. (ongoing) Reduce the number of open issues…
9. Prepare 0.9.5 release, work on new features/feature requests
10. Add black box and unit test infrastructure

August/September 2019
13. Create 0.9.5 beta
14. Release 0.9.5 stable

Thanks to Aisler’s sponsorship, we can hopefully look to updates to our favorite diagram program.
