LibreTime in 2023 and into 2024
Published on November 16, 2023 by Kyle Robbertze

LibreTime development has largely stalled in 2023. With both core maintainers life-circumstances changing, it has been difficult to find time to work on the facelift LibreTime desperately needs. There have been important steps towards that goal driven by jooola and zklosko, but there is much left to do before that can be called complete. We are actively looking for new contributors who are interested in contributing to the LibreTime code base!

Funds from the OpenCollective were used to move the domain into the management of all the core LibreTime maintainers. Thank you to hairmare who was maintaining the domain before the transfer. This also allowed us to configure a security vulnerability reporting flow via email. We set up hosting at Hetzner for testing releases and verifying builds. We would love to see this grow into a hosted demo server that we can use for people to explore what LibreTime is capable of doing.

I hope to see more activity in the development of LibreTime in 2024, but I suspect this will require new contributors interested in getting involved, as the core team is still lacking the time required to do much of the development.

Thank you for your support in this past year and I look forward to seeing what 2024 brings!
