You may all be wondering what happened to StreamDesk 2.0…. to put it simply plans changed. It was decided to continue the 1.x branch in the short term with plans for 2.x in the long term. Earlier in the month I released 1.1.1 of StreamDesk for Windows that added GeekShed IRC to it since many Chris Pirillo viewers complained about the lack of chat, It also restored Justin.tv feeds.
Well when 1.2 is released there will be many changes that are to be announced when it’s released and even more goodies in future versions. This is my commitment to the community… I won’t let you down.
To show good faith here is a screenshot of 1.2
You may notice it closer resembles my good ol Widget Pack… and that was the inspiration for that ui…. but don’t worry users who love the tree menu can turn it on via view menu .
That’s all for now in the StreamDesk department so I better stop before I ramble on.
I know many of you are starting to think that 2.0 of StreamDesk is vaporware…. for those who think that that’s far from the truth. The developers have been busy on personal projects and work on the apps is kinda on the back burner but are still being worked on.
As some insight into the progress… The windows one has to go final before the mac developer can’t make the app use the new tech that is being established by the windows developer. This update is exciting since it will mark the end of my manual update file editing and will have cross platform data update system.
For those who want a tidibt here is a sneak peak at the icons for 2.0
There is one thing that has gotten worse over time… SPAM. Spam in email,forums,blog comments,link backs,web forms,news groups and many other places. Nothing worse than waking up to spam on your site/service of choice.
For me it is worse…. Due to spammers I have been forced to take the auto posting of StreamDesk requests to the pending requests page. I can’t be a portal for spammers to abuse… im not doing a service to my adsense, users, & anyone who visits site if i allow the asses to post their crap to the pending request page.
Until further notice ALL requests to Streamdesk will have to be appproved by me in order to be posted on the site… If you dont like this support your local spam legistation or any other anti spammer services near you. Don’t blame me for this…. I didn’t want to do this but i had no choice.
