(My) Open Source Libraries

Over the past few months I've been receiving a ton of emails, tweets, G+ mentions and GitHub issues in connection with my open source libraries. So I thought I would set out what my plan is for them in the future, and the order in which I'll be tackling the backlog.

Pushing AARs to Maven Central

Android-PullToRefresh – Stopping Development

Android-PullToRefresh was started about 18 months ago, as I needed it for a project (Friendcaster). Since then I’ve kept maintaining the project, pushing it forward and adding new features. Well today I’m stopping development. There are two reasons for this, the first is that it is feature complete. The second reason is that the volume of ‘issues’ I get is taking up too much of my time. At the end of the day, it’s open source. If you want something added or fixed, you have the source to do so.
