We will see what of these things can be accomplished this year. However what I can assure you is that Diodon 0.7.0 will be released today.
It introduces a new key combination so the diodon history menu can be accessed just with one hand on the keyboard. You can read more about it here. Furthermore does this Diodon version also work together with Java applications. This has been a naughty bug and I am sure that quite a few people are happy to see this fixed.
You can install the new version with following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:diodon-team/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install diodon
Happy Diodon new year ;).
