You might be wondering, where are the development for Hachidori, MAL Updater OS X and Kanimanabu? Why is development slow these days. Since I don’t have as much free time as I used to. Now that I left Twitter, now known as X and managed two servers on the Fediverse (Mastodon and Misskey), it took up a good chunk of my time along will preparing for the JLPT. Return to the office doesn’t help things either.
2024 will be different as I plan to focus some more time on my open source projects to make some updates. I have made quite a few updates to Shukofukurou for iOS/iPadOS to add the ability to delete accounts to comply with guidelines and removed support for older iOS. The only iOS/iPad versions it will support going forward is iOS 16 or later.
I am also getting the Apple Vision Pro and it’s coming on February 2nd. I’m looking to bring it to Vision OS. While it works fine as an iPadOS, I want to have it work natively with VisionOS. Of course it will take some work, but it will be a good experience.
If you noticed, we finally updated Hato to work with .NET 8.0, what is going on? We finally moved servers, thus I needed to update the code so it will work. The plan eventually is to get some type of cross list service entry updates to make it easy to update multiple lists. But yes, there are some more features including a Kanimanabu iOS/iPad version. While it will take a while, we want to let everyone know that we are still alive. We also will release a new Hachidori update to fix some things soon. We are still alive, but as expected, expect to see a bit more in terms of activity this year than last year.
