Whoa, long time since I posted anything here. Well, I've been very busy (usual excuse), both in school as well as working on 3Dwm. With the midterms behind me and 3Dwm 0.2.2 out the door (it did seem to cause a slight impact on Slashdot), I'm free to concentrate on other stuff for a while. Trouble is, 3Dwm is what I like best in the world, so I'll probably not be able to take a break. :)

So, what's up with 3Dwm then? Well, last week we were part of Scandinavian IT-World, a large software/hardware/communication tradeshow held here in Göteborg. Me and Steve (formerly of 3dfx, now Kodak) have been busy working on the 3Dwm server, and we've implemented lots of stuff, such as VNC client support for distributed graphical desktops in 3D, distributed textures and materials, big texture splitting, a test suite based on the Extreme Programming (XP) philosophy, and so on. All in all, a very exciting time.

It was a while ago since I showed my face on the Berlin IRC, I think I'll do that soon. Berlin is another cool project that fights for my attention. :)
