Bug Bounties

Bountysource

Exciting news for those of you who want to help Nightingale development with a little bit of money: we are officially using Bountysource for bounties on bugs now. Bountysource is an open source project, which allows users to put money on a bug or feature request – wether it’s already in the issues tracker or not. And it makes it easy for developers to find bugs to work on to get a little bit of money. and it’s perfect for us: we don’t have to handle money in the whole process. To give a bounty on an existing issue, just go to https://www.bountysource.com/trackers/230233-nightingale-media-player-nightingale-hacking and select the issue you want to speed up from the list.

BountysourceBy putting a bounty on a bug, you make it more likely to get another developer, who is not currently wokring on Nightingale to fix a bug. We from the team will fix bugs with and without bounties equally, just dependent on our plans and personal preferences. So no worries if you don’t have the money to boost an issue.

We will add the “bounty” tag to all issues with bounties. If you start working on an issue with the tag, be sure to got to Bountysource and click the “Start Work” button.

For more information on how Bountysource works, visit their FAQ. Please hang on if you want to donate directly to the project. We are still looking into how to handle money the best.

 

An Early Easter Update

It’s been a month since we released Nightingale 1.11, and no we aren’t dead! :)

We are currently working on fixing small bugs and improving the 1.11 branch based on the latest Songbird changes. You can file bugs on our GitHub.

Oh – about Songbird, it’s been 2 years since POTI stopped supporting the Linux release (April 2nd), and as a result, the Nightingale project was born.
Beginnings were difficult but we ended up releasing our first version last year.

In other news, we have several new developers, one of which is augsod. While we don’t know a lot about him yet, he’s been working hard on the master branch, converting our code to work with Gecko 6. As our dev team grows, our community does as well – our latest release has had over 13,000 downloads! Wow!
While this is a shorter update, we appreciate you staying tuned and hitting us up on the forumsĀ  from time to time.

Thanks for you support , and Happy Easter!
