Good times are gone

My sabbatical is over, and all this month I have been busy on a full time job, programming Windows applications in C# for a living. For this reason I have not had much time to devote to open source projects, and the forecast is that this situation will not change in the near future.

In the past few months I have contributed as much as I could to the free software community with MIDI applications, an area I know well and where  there is not too much material, particularly on Linux. Result of this has been KMid2 and Drumstick. I have also maintained my previous projects: KMetronome and KMidimon. About VMPK, this month has beaten their previous records on SourceForge with more than 10000 downloads in October. Thank you very much to all Mac and Windows users who trusted this software, and of course to all participants, contributors and translators who made it  possible. In Debian, the situation is also "fantastic", with 137 installations to date, and only one release late. I have no data on other Linux.
