For those who installed #glimpse 0.1.2 through the Ubuntu Software Center as a Snap, please accept our apologies for the delayed 0.2.0 update.
If you would like to upgrade today, try installing via Flathub: https://www.flathub.org/apps/details/org.glimpse_editor.Glimpse
It is fair to say this is one of the nicer messages #glimpse project has received. ❤️
If you’re a Pinebook Pro user, we confirmed this evening that the Flathub version of #glimpse 0.2.0 works out-of-the-box on that machine. 🥳
The buildbot server we use as part of the Flathub publish process creates ARM64 and AARCH64 builds automatically to future-proof our project.
Hold onto your hats! We now have an automatic continuously-released Linux AppImage (without Python 2) that follows the tip of the #glimpse development branch.
Our testing is still ongoing, and we expect to produce stable builds in next week or so.
We just announced some exciting plans for the second year of #glimpse project!
We have now provided a new FAQ answer that links to instructions for how to migrate settings from your previous #glimpse 0.1.2 installation to 0.2.0 🙂
If you would like to help us test the latest Linux AppImage, you can find the link here: https://twitter.com/azubieta90/status/1298809582970695680
In coming weeks our Github build jobs will be updated to generate them automatically, and then we will produce a Linux AppImage for #glimpse 0.2.0
As a couple of people have asked, we can confirm that we did not deliberately time the #glimpse 0.2.0 release to coincide with Linux's 29th anniversary! It is a cool coincidence though. 🐧
We will be producing a blog post in the next couple of weeks discussing what comes next now that #glimpse 0.2.0 is out.
A brief summary:
* Work is ongoing for a Linux AppImage for 0.2.0 (expected September 2020)
* We will be investigating in coming weeks if we can port 0.2.0 to the Microsoft Store (Windows) and Homebrew (macOS)
* We will start planning what will come next in 0.2.2 (due January/February 2021) very soon
* We will elaborate on our new plan for Glimpse NX (see FAQ for preview)
We would like to remind Windows users that this is a brand new application we literally just released today.
We rely on people like you reporting false positives to security software vendors to help other #glimpse users. 🙂

We can now confirm that #glimpse 0.2.0 is available on Flathub, and we just re-issued the single-file bundle flatpak on our downloads page.
Today's the day! We are currently in the process of releasing #glimpse 0.2.0.
We can confirm that we have finally fixed the Windows build problem that was blocking the #glimpse 0.2.0 release! 🎉
Thank you to GNU I.M.P and MSYS2 contributors for helping us to resolve this problem.
We will provide an updated release timetable in due course.
It's still a work in progress (so there are bits missing), but we would appreciate any Linux users following us to give this #glimpse 0.2.0 appimage a try on their distro.
Thank you to probonopd for their amazing work. 🤩
