ANNOUNCE: Snowy 0.6.1 "Jagdterrier" Released

Dear friends,

I'm very happy to announce Snowy 0.6.1 "Cavalier King Charles Spaniel",
a minor bugfix update, meant to correspond with GNOME 2.91.4.  The
Tomboy Online alpha has been updated with this latest release, and the
next wave of invites will be mailed out soon.

This release features some of the first code drops from our work
during the Snowy Hackfest in November, such as the new theme and the
experimental mobile client.  Further mobile work, and a new note
sharing feature, along with some pieces of the note editing puzzle,
are in active development in various branches on github.  Expect some
goodies over the next few releases!

Still, this is alpha quality software.  As the Tomboy Online alpha
continues, we hope to be able to make sweeping statements about its
stability and security, but until then, do not trust it with your
fancy notes without a backup.  ;-)

Tomboy Online invites are being emailed out in phases to everyone who
fills out this survey:

For the uninitiated, Snowy is a web-based viewer for your Tomboy
notes.  It's written in Python using the Django web framework, and is
licensed under the AGPL.

Tomboy Online is a deployment of the Snowy software on GNOME servers,
intended to provide free note sync and online note access to all
Tomboy users.
