Fixed the annoying UI issue with adding contacts... This thing was very confusing for people... Jeremy has been playing aruond with sourceforge, so we now got a mailing list, yoohoo... ;)

Hacking

OK, 0.94 is out at last, and I got a flood of ideas in my mind to implement, so I'll be coding soon ;) BTW, gnomeicu's homepage is now http://gnomeicu.sourceforge.net...

Life

I've got a cold, btw. Been to a nice local rock concert on friday... Didn't know we had such a nice groups in Ashkelon. After that, had a little fight with one groups guitarist, about how much better another gourp was on that concert, we concluded that "Yes, they played better, but my pride does not allow me to agree."... Anyway, my love life sux. And it was a very sad day, with lots of weird twirks... Won't go into details, since nobody reads this anyway.

hmm, noticed a couple of days ago that GnomeICU is number 1 on the top-picks for GNOME at tucows. Way to go proggy ;)

k, fixed the spell checking bug. Didn't hack on anything else this weekdend, which practicly sucks... In any case, su ya ;)

/nick GEGL
/me GEGLS everybody in the room

uh, didn't write for a while... Been trying to get-a-life ;) Had some success... Still no 0.94 though =) Been hacking some PalmOS software... Will release version 0.1 of Fanarona for PalmOS soon... And, uhm, dancing all night long, visiting paris, and hanging with friends, and talking on IRC with real-life friends, is not the best thing for hacking... Hacked a proggy for PalmOS for a friends idea. The idea is a simple pseudo-"encryption" algorithm, that was probably invented before him, but anyway...

ok, back from Paris. Was very cool. Still no 0.94. Wrote some PalmOS stuff, and got a picture of myself on my website.

Hmm, nice summery, don't you think? ;)

k, a new web message dialog from Olivier, and I'm out in 2 hours. All the patches go to jwise while I'm gone. cya. PS. Somebody please fix his compile warnings.

HUGE thanks to Tester for fixing the spell checking bug!!! Thanks dude! Anyway, no, we're not dead yet... Heres a talk between me and jwise today:

lol. You said that you'll get it out this weekend... Its
just a matter of "make dist", and rpm -ta
gnomeicu-0.94.tar.gz

getting the webpage moved over to sourceforge... i've gotta
find out how to send to SF

Judge this however you want. For the record - the move was planed for 1.0, not for 0.94... And the CVS will stay cvs.gnome.org... Again thanks to Tester, he's been fixing lots of bugs...

In any case, I'm off to Paris today, for 10 days, so I guess I'll see 0.94 after you all ;)

On our way to 0.94. Did a fix today, and stuff... Need to commit Thomas' documantation... (He really do need a CVS account ;)... Anyway, I still think porting gnomeicu to Windows is a good idea...Hate does weird bugs that lurk somewhere, but god knows where =)

OK, I did add that crash-proof thing. But (stupid me), I added it to 0.7, instead of CVS, which means my changes couldn't be merged. Gotta find time to redo it for CVS. Anyway, I think GnomeICU is about to see some manegment changes :(
Current plan is:

0.94 - RSN - includes the spell checker, the new TCP code,
the new file transfer code, etc...
0.95 - Bug release for 0.95, probably includes the new
documentation from Thomas.
0.96 - Last minute features + bug fixes
1.0 - the long awaited release. Hopefully I'll be able to
convince jwise to get a 1.0-pre...
Anyway, after that GnomeICU either goes to a kernel based scheme, or dies. Dies because Jeremy wants to work on Gabber's bonobo component.
If somebody can exaplain to me, why would an instant message program need to be a bonobo component, I would be gratefull, because I have no idea. This is of course the right place to blame it all on x-virge. Julian - its all you fault. Here, I did it. Anyway, Julian, great job, please do continue!
Anyway, We'll see where this will go... Meantime, wait for 0.94 really soon now.

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.
