as you might have noticed, the last updates to the app were very slow and far apart. This was mostly due to the fact that I was fairly busy the last year, with both school and other personal stuff. One of the reasons was also this DE mess that has been going on lately. I’m referring mainly to the release of GNOME 3.
GNOME 3 is a mess, and I’m not the only one who thinks this way. I’m really sorry I have to say this, I know many people have worked hard on the release of GNOME 3, but it really isn’t anything near what GNOME 2 used to be. I’m not going to list all the reasons why I think GNOME 3 sucks, because there have been already many, many, many posts about why GNOME 3 is bad for power users (or even for normal users), and the moral of the story is, I switched to KDE for the time being (I don’t think it’s definitive, but I really couldn’t get my work done properly with GNOME 3). For this reason, the development of ClipIt has been halted for now. I really hope to be able to get back to it, since I really use it every day, and I can’t imagine doing my work without the aid of a clipboard manager, and I also still have a lot of ideas of improving the app.
