New year, new look for gEDA website

I spent part of today giving the gEDA website a new look with the logo on the left and the two line nav bar on the right. I also properly templated the wiki to look like the rest of the site. Hopefully these changes will work with all the mainstream browsers out there.

The idea and prototype for melding the logo into the blue line came from Peter Clifton. Peter also created working html and css to make it work on more than just Firefox. Many thanks Peter.

New blog

Welcome to my new blog. I used to write occasionally (read: rarely) on Advogato, but now I might post some things here. I might even syndicate this blog over there. Pretty much all my free software development time is still spent working on gEDA.

Might as well start off with some real content. I've written up the steps for doing a gEDA/gaf release here (on the gEDA wiki). Comments always welcome.

Finally. Got another (20050820) release of gEDA done. Even after seven years of working on the same project, I still enjoy it. Always something to fix or change or improve. :-)

Oh look, a second diary update this year!

Anyways, since I'm still shameless, here's a rather well written article about gEDA in EEDesign. These sorts of things are always fun.

Still active with gEDA, though real life has been keeping me quite busy.


Time for the yearly diary update...

Work on gEDA is still progressing (April 1st was the 6 year anniversary), even though the past few months have been insanely busy due to my personal life and I haven't been able to dedicate the time I want to the project. I'm hoping that the middle of May will be more sane. I am beginning to see the gEDA suite be used more and more, especially with real world examples like Ronja. Here's a link to a finished board which was built using gEDA and PCB.

Now for a truly shameless plug: Stuart Brorson and I will be giving a talk on gEDA at DeLUGE on May 5th. Yah! Here's the link to the nylug-announce announcement. This is going to be a fun talk.

Oh my. Last diary entry too long ago.

I'm still spending all my free software time working on gEDA/gaf. Just got another release out the door (20030525). I really ought to catch up on some e-mail now and start thinking about what I want to fix for the next release.

Ah, another gEDA/gaf release done: 20020825.

This one includes the symbol/schematic attribute changes I have been wanting to do for a while now. So far nobody has complained (that's a good thing. :-) I tried to make the transition as painless as possible by providing perl scripts to update the symbol/schematics to use the new attributes.

Just finished another release of gEDA/gaf (20020527), including the release notes and freshmeat announcement. This release included a bunch of user interface improvements and the first release of the MinGW port (cygwin port is obsolete). It's really quite sad, the Win32 port is more popular than then Linux/Unix port (as far as downloads go).

Woo. Finally after many months, I got another release out (20020209). Nothing revolutionary, but it did include a whole slew of contributed patches/symbols/code etc... Now I need to spend some time and get the mingw port done. I have most of this week free to work on gEDA. :-)

Got another gEDA release out the door this morning. Spent almost all of my energy doing the cygwin port as well as a bunch of bug fixes. I still need to do the freshmeat announcement thing.

In my last diary entry I stated that a switch to C++ might affect my user base. Probably not, as long as the tools work as advertised (which they seem to do). What might be affected (a lot) is the developer base for gEDA. Not too many people know C++ well enough. :-( Something to certainly consider.

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.
