Much progress! Linus told me that I should not use kernel headers from user space in the diet libc, so I cleansed the diet libc header files. It was quite a lot of ugly work, but it had to be done. Now, theoretically, you can cross-compile it without needing anything else (except gcc and binutils of course) from completely strange and alien platforms like cygwin/alpha or a PDP/11 ;)

Olaf got an ld.so for the diet libc working on x86, and it's only 7k! A little more cleaning up and I say we are ripe for one-dot-oh, baby!

What else is new? I resurrected my djbdns IPv6 patches and added full IPv6 transport capabilities, not only for tinydns but also for dnscache (which took a lot of messing with internal structures and resulted in a 70k patch). It would have taken weeks had I not been able to reuse code from libowfat. Whew.

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
