New features

A lot of work is being done with the project to get it ready for the first release.

The project now supports autotools, so it doesn't depend on NAnt anymore. It has also been integrated into MonoDevelop.

For the first version, more work has yet to be done on the spin buttons, the support for more synchronization options, and better integration with the clipboard.

The current changes aren't yet commited to the SVN (but they will soon).

There's also a new web site on the way, hopefully more useable than this blog. :)

Developers Needed

Gnome Subtitles is growing slowly. I'm the only active developer and haven't found sufficient free time to make regular improvements to the project.

Anyone who's willing to join the team is very much welcome. The project is still relatively small, so it won't be hard to understand the code.

The project is written in C# and uses the GTK# bindings. I will obviously help wherever i can, and will continue to assist in the development.

You can email me at "noup [AT] users [DOT] sourceforge [DOT] net".

More features

I've finished implementing the support for changing the Frame Rates and subtitle's Style.

Frame Rates include the subtitle file's frame rate (Input FrameRate) and the movie's frame rate. Both can be set when using frame based subtitles, but only Movie Frame Rate can be set when using time based subtitles.

Subtitle Style includes Bold, Italic and Underline.

The multilevel Undo/Redo also includes these new features.

Open File and Save As dialogs

I've been working on finishing the basic functions: open a file, adjust subtitles and save/save as.

Here are the dialogs (not that much to see, i know):

The project's CVS has been migrated to Subversion.

It can be accessed online or with your favorite SVC client (remember to join the following 2 lines, it's a single command):

svn co

Editing Subtitles

Due to limitations in the GTK# bindings, i'm unable to implement full in-line editing support. I managed to create in-line SpinButtons for time/frame editing, but the same couldn't be done for the text area.

That said, plan B went into action. Timings and text editing is placed at the bottom, and reflect the currently selected subtitle. I have to say, though, that this turned out better than i thought, and perhaps the interface is more solid this way than it would have been with in-line editing only.
