Also, there is a new release, the 0.9.2, that was not announced here.

The new site was also announced  by Guillaume on his blog that is aggregated on planetkde, this brings a new package of the latest release, this time for archlinux. Thanks realitygaps for packaging, it is found on the AUR Repository:

This also revives an old controversy about the name of the project. And I think its time to post about the name here.

The origin of the name for the POS is the fruit which is the main regional product of my state (Colima, México), specially of the Tecomán area…

Lemon

Mexican Lemon

“THE CAPITAL WORLD OF THE MEXICAN LEMON”

One of the typical fruits of Colima is Lemon, citric brought from Europe, but it is registered botanically as Mexican Lemon. With few more then 19,000 hectares, Colima State occupies the first place in its production. It has kept this relevance since the end of the XIXth century when the Comala Municipality and Tecomán already exported it monthly to San Francisco, California. In the fifties the citricultors of Tecomán Valley signed a contract with Golden Citrus Juices Inc of Florida, in order that the lemon juice and essential oil were sold to them, multiplying for it the packing and industrialization plants. They make good use of this fruit, from leaf oil is obtained, from the skin jam is made and pectins are obtained and certainly the juice, of which diverse uses are given.
