I wrote a tool to automate taking screenshots of widgets!

It took me a couple of days, but with the compositor running in headless mode, screenshots can even be taken from CI! No more fiddling with a VM and spending hours in GIMP to make screenshots in various languages for Metadata Cleaner's help pages.

It was also the opportunity to start using -rs, the GTK Rust bindings.

Metadata Cleaner saw its first release one year ago, and in the meantime was ported to and got a new appearance thanks to !


I finally updated the covers of my French translations of Orwell's 1984 and Animal Farm novels!

I'm on a release streak! I released version 2.1.0 of Metadata Cleaner, my Circle app. It now allows adding whole folders at once and brings a few other improvements.

Flatpaking games from GOG. Some work fine, some insist on not using standard config, data and temp directories and instead try to write files next to the executables… But this place is read-only in Flatpak.

Apparently I managed to flatpak Wine and use it as a base app for a Windows game, and it works great 🕹️

I just released v2.0.0 of Metadata Cleaner! 🎉


This is a major upgrade featuring a brand new user interface built with GTK4 and libadwaita, a new help system and a whole set of new and updated translations.

Getting ready for the release of Metadata Cleaner v2 by taking all the screenshots for the 15 languages the new help system is translated in!
