#1 Post by Richard » Fri Sep 21, 2018 7:58 am

on CherryTree, hierarchial note taking application, upcoming port for compat with Buster:

There is a bit of abandonware but only in the forum 🙂
I’m still struggling to find free time since the family 2.0 (second kid born) but I’m the first user of cherrytree (using it daily at work) and really keen to work on the port to gtkmm3 that is paramount.
I will likely release a new pygtk version soon in the meanwhile with mostly bug fixes.
May the source be with you 🙂

A port would be timely, since the support libraries for the current version aren't in Debian testing any longer, which means it can't be installed there or in any upcoming MX version based on Buster.
Thanks, Stevo, I'll mention that in the forum.
Lastest news:
Hi @richard, thanks I know the porting is more and more urgent. I’ve been able to make some small but important progress in the summer completing the support for password protection without using an external command line binary (p7zip is now built from sources together with the the cherrytree C++ sources). About the time to dedicate to it, I’m starting to wake up earlier every morning to have a daily timeslot, so the progress will boost.

We do have the current 0.38.5 release in the MX 15/16 and 17 test repos, by the way: https://repology.org/metapackage/cherrytree/versions

It (0.38.5 release) is also in main antiX repos and has been working ok without issue.

Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.
