After about a year of neglect, I'm getting fairly close to releasing the new version of Fezbox. RedHat has been driving me insane over the past little while, and the new v7.0 is no exception to the rule. The original Fez was of course written to work with v6.0, but since v6.1 was such a disaster (Kickstart was broken entirely), I haven't really done anything with it until taking a job at VA Linux and allowing them to use it for their 'BTOS' (Build to Order Sofware) system.

You can check out the pre-alpha at this address. Right now, there is only a small set of packages from RedHat v6.2, however now that I've broken my machine by installing V7.0 (where did /usr/dict/words go?) I'll probably index up a bunch of packages to work with it.

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.
