Application development cessation

Due to overwhelming amounts of work, we are dropping development of a couple of our apps. Namely: game-board and usb-scanner.

For game-board specifically, since it wasn’t in our repositories, this won’t really impact anyone, unless you where trying to build it from source. game-board’s source code will remain available on our GitHub, for any who wish to continue development.

For usb-scanner, due to XBox and PlayStation controller support already being included included in the Linux Kernel, and Steam, there is no point in continuing development. Again, the source code will remain available to those who wish to continue development.

Doing this should free up time to develop more commonly used apps such as drauger-intaller: our GDebi Package Installer alternative, drauger-welcome: our welcome screen on the live ISO, and steam-login-session: the shortcut to login to Steam Big Picture mode from your system login screen. Furthermore, it should free up time for development on Drauger OS 7.5.1 Zombi.

These packages will remain available to Drauger OS 7.4.1 Jiangshi users, but will no longer be updated. Furthermore, beyond Drauger OS 7.4.1 Jiangshi, these packages will no longer be available from the repositories.

Thank you for your understanding as we attempt to streamline our development process.

Sincerely,

Thomas Castleman
