Handing over the reins

November 15, 2015

As some of you might know, I started the application Cantor in KDEedu a couple of years ago, since I didn’t want to rely on comercial computer algebra systems during my studies, and because all the free alternatives seemed to lack a decent graphical interface. Since then Cantor has grown to support all kinds of different mathematical languages due to numerous contributors from all over the world.

Unfortunately, lately I’ve found myself with less and less time to spend on Cantor especially since I’ve started working on my Phd. Luckily for me others have made sure that the project keeps going, and have for example ported it to KF5 etc.

So now I think its time for me to step down as the maintainer of Cantor, and hand over the reins to Filipe Saraiva, who has been with the project for a long time now, and was the main driving force behind the Python backends and the Frameworks port (among other stuff). So I’d like to wish Filipe, and the Cantor project all the best, I know he is up to the task, while I take on more of an observer role to its development.
