Over the last month, I’ve read and responded to well over a thousand e-mails as well as hundreds of messages on various sites – and quite frankly, it’s exhausting. I spend the majority of my spare time answering messages, and I hardly ever work on Mizuu anymore. It’s been 24 days since I wrote any meaningful code for Mizuu. Honestly, I’m not happy with the situation. My hobby is developing Android applications – not providing user support to thousands of people each month. Thankfully, it seems like the load has been lifted a bit now, so I’ll try to get some actual work done soon.
If anyone has any ideas of how I’ll be able to better scale user support, please don’t hold back.
Here’s what’s planned for the next release:
- Support for the new API on Trakt.tv
- Updated DLNA library
- Huge refactoring of file sources and library updates
- Bug fixes – mainly for stuff related to TV shows
I don’t have any estimate of when it’ll be ready.
Also, I’d love to use this opportunity to encourage all Android developers that use Mizuu to contribute to the code. Mizuu has been open source for quite some time now, and I’d love to see it become a large project that’s developed and maintained by several people out in the open.
As always you can find the source code on the GitHub repo. Thanks!
