The excellent free and open source video / audio recording and livestreaming application OBS Studio appears to be doing really well and they've made some fun announcements recently. We use it here for all of our podcasts and livestreaming, it's pretty much the gold standard.
On August 3 the team announced that developer Dillon Pentz has joined full-time, after being part of the community since 2017 working on various features already. Technically, according to what they said, Pentz has been working fully already since 2017 and only now they're announcing that it's a done deal for Pentz to be a properly paid developer alongside Hugh "Jim" Bailey. Seems like funding is going well with approximately £3,301per month from their Open Collective and a further £2,001 a month from Patreon.
Then shortly after on August 5 they also announced the OBS Project Bounty Program. Much like many other open source projects: the idea is to have an official place for listing work that needs to be done, along with the amount a developer would receive for doing it. This way they can move developers towards targetted development they really need. Their Open Collective now has a special page just to hold funding for the Bounty Program too.
Fantastic project, great to see it so healthy.
