Not many updates in the last few months. ICI just got a GUI debugger, or at least the first stages. Works well. Gtk/Glade are quite good and it doesn't mangle added code which is nice. I hacked together a version of the interpreter with its own internal scheduler to play with CSP contructs but it needs a little work (it's a real hack) but the debugger is more important. The module collection grows and grows, larger than the interpreter now (which is the way it should be). Will have to do a proper configuration tool for it one day and get it distributed/known better. Gee I could do with some help with this...

The ici gtk module is coming along. The multiple interfaces (simple direct mapping of the Gtk C biding to ICI and a set of ICI classes mapping that back to the Gtk class hierarchy!) are a pain to keep in synch but the work is largely mechanical so its not too hard. Keeps the fingers nimble and goes well with some techno streaming in from northern Europe somewhere.

More hacking at ici and its module systems. Modules now have a better makefile setup and build cleanly for both ici versions. Playing with ici's regexp substitution to make it faster. Got initial Flash output working with a simple movie generated. Next to hook it into the ici http server and stream stuff out.

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.
