Doing what I can to test FBSD CURRENT. Getting back to PC assembly after a really long time too. Thinking about optimizing some of FBSD's libc for Athlon/Intel P3 and higher CPUs. SIMD operations for things like bcopy could be a useful enhancement. How many programs do you think call that anyway?

FreeBSD is a good platform to try this on since it is encouraged to recompile the whole system to get updates. If there is a good way to switch which implementation of certain libc functions get called it could be a nice enhancement.

Anyway that's what I have been doing in my decreasing spare time.

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.
