Spek status update

Just a quick update on the status of the project.

Spek is now translatable, the next version will feature at least these translations: Dutch, German, Russian, Swedish and Ukrainian. We use Transifex to manage translations. Feel free to translate it into your language or to improve an existing translation. Transifex is a very easy to use tool, you don't have to know anything about programming to translate.

Some progress has been made on the packaging front, Spek packages are now available in Arch Linux, FreeBSD and Gentoo repositories.

I also created a package for Debian which needs a sponsor. If you are a Debian Developer I would appreciate a review and eventually an upload. The package can be found on

Last but not least, the next version will show some OS X love. Many OS X specific bugs have already been fixed or are scheduled to be fixed for the next release.

I expect to release Spek 0.7 sometime this spring. If you are feeling adventurous, try Spek from git master, compilation instructions are on the wiki.
