Our monthly Jour Fixe for gPodder hacking at the Metalab Vienna has taken place on the 16th this month.
We've been mostly working on fixing several bugs related to extension scripts on different platforms and we have been discussing the initial plans for gPodder 4. Right now, there's some code in the "cuatro" branch in Git that features a new, faster podcast feed parser. The extension fixes will be included in the next release.
Next up: The March 2013 Hack Day (already on the 9th).
