QVD Comes To GitHub


One of our major goals after the release of QVD 3.1 was to make the source code of the QVD more easily accessible to the wider world. GitHub has seen a meteoric (and much deserved) rise as the destination for open source coders over the last few years and, as such, we have decided to make the QVD trunk available in its own GitHub repository.

The repository will replicate nightly from our internal VCS, and thus will contain an up to date snapshot of trunk. Lead development will still take place on our internal systems, so by all means check out the code base and hack away but we will not at this time be accepting pull requests in GitHub itself. If you’d like to contribute to the project, please see our How to Contribute page.

The project itself is coded almost exclusively in Perl, and relies on several other open source projects to bind it together. If you have any questions about the project or getting started with the code, please see our Community page.

Along with the QVD, we hope to publish any other interesting open source side projects and offshoots of our daily work within the QVD GitHub account. One project that we are particularly excited about, Xvnc Pro X/X11 Server (our implementation of X for Android) which will be available in the next few days.

With this move the issue tracking for non-customers of the QVD moves away from our Trac system and into the GitHub Issue Tracker for our project. If you come across any bugs, or have suggestions, please file them there – all contributions gratefully received.
