DesktopConf and OLS

I'm a bit exhausted after nearly a week of conferences. Very good to (re)connect face to face with other people, the set of talks have been quite good too, today for example have been completely focused on Xen and virtualizattion, but a week in a row is a bit too much. And we still have a Fedora BOF at 9pm !

Libxml2

I still managed to do some code between the conferences, I fixed some of the libxml2 automat/regexps limitations that blocked Kasimier on XML Schemas. I also started implementing the Schematron validation draft ISO standard, it's both relatively simple, and powerful, it's a good complement to XSD or Relax-NG especially for integrity contraints at the document level, but it can also be a validation framework easier to use for people who are not XML gurus. Since it's mostly based on XPath the code on top of existing functionalities should be relatively small in term of code size, which is good too.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
