OMG!* CreBS, my little tool for creating background slideshows in GNOME desktops, has been featured at top-notch Ubuntu news website OMG! Ubuntu!, hailed as the ultimate wallpaper slideshow application. And the reactions it’s had, both there, and at other sites that have picked up on it, have been really encouraging. So to Joey, and all the others with kind words, I’d like to say a big thank you.

Following one suggestion, I’m now going to work on packaging CreBS up into my PPA, and I’ll look into RPM packaging too, since not everyone using GNOME uses the Debian packaging system.

So my list of improvements now consists of:

That should keep me busy for a while.
