Other Features on the Radar
Sponsors and/or Contributors Needed!
A reminder that VirtualGL and TurboVNC would not exist without outside funding. If your organization can benefit from one of the aforementioned features, or if you have other features in mind, please consider funding the development of one or more of those features. This type of funding is what allows me to release this software free of charge and to maintain its high standards of quality, performance, and usability. I spent something like 300 hours in August preparing for the 2.1.2 release, of which only about about half of that was funded. The TurboVNC General Fund, which provides funding for 200 hours of labor a year and renews every May, is already exhausted through May of 2018. With the exception of the must-have items for TurboVNC 2.2, very little else can be done until next year unless more funding is secured for next-gen TurboVNC projects. Furthermore, this funding ensures that I can continue to work on VirtualGL and TurboVNC full-time (VirtualGL alone would not be enough to pay my bills), and this ensures that these products remain free of any one organization's agenda. Your patronage is critical to the success of VirtualGL and TurboVNC.
We accept (well-crafted) patches/pull requests too! Some of the premiere features in TurboVNC were code contributions. If you want to get your hands dirty and would be interested in implementing one of the aforementioned features yourself, I'm happy to work with you.
