This week several friends contacted me to talk about the visibility of the project in the Internet and they consider that is almost zero. I absolutely agree with them.
As Free Software project the first step to ensure a promissory future for Tupi is to build community. Since the beginning, I have been trying to introduce the project in many Linux-related websites but finally I realized that this goal can't be done by one man army.
So, It's time to ask for help. The "Tupi Campaign" has started and everybody is welcome! so spread the word!
Tupi doesn't work in KDE. A segmentation fault is generated every time the application is launched.
This is the gdb output:
Due to many requests and after some little hacks, I decided to build the Debian package for Ubuntu Lucid. Because it's long term supported I hope to maintain this package in further revisions too.
PS: If you have any problem installing the .deb file, please let me know.
After a couple of days hacking Tupi source code here and there, finally I got a functional binary from the MeeGo platform. The procedure is still a little dirty but I hope to enhance it in future versions.
As result of this hacking adventure, it seems to me that Tupi has a great potential in the tablets universe. That's cool! :)
This week I was a little busy designing a set of products for the Tupi store. Now, the time for launch it has come!
As part of my search for funding, this initiative opens its virtual doors this week, expecting to bring resources to encourage the project and helping to spread its name around the world.

P.S.: I want to thank all the people who believe in this project and in my work. They are my inspiration to keep coding!
This week I decided to start a small set of mini-tutorials to show the current state of the art and the potential of Tupi.
Finally, the basic set of Tweeners are ready for testing on this new revision. Now you can play with: Position, Rotation, Scaling, Shear, Opacity and Coloring tweening.
Here we go again! A new version of Tupi is ready for testers from the download section. This time two new Tweeners are available (Rotation and Scaling) and many bugs of different modules have been fixed.
PS: I want to thank all the people who are supporting this project with donations. Remember that every dollar counts! :)
After many tests and some tricks and because many users were asking for it, the Tupi's source code now is compatible with Ubuntu Lucid. Due to a Qt issue, I won't build Debian packages of Tupi for that version, but the source code can be compiled in a pretty clean way.
Ubuntu Lucid users, enjoy Tupi! :)
