I've just seen the appframework @ java.net. I'll try this framework and maybe integrate it in our cursus. It seems pretty cool to design Swing based applications. Introduction article. Article at JavaLobby

A friend told me about Renoise, and browsing their site, I click on that page http://www.renoise.com/songs.php?pg=artist&id=19 and I listened to all the titles, really cool! ;-)

No FOSDEM for me this year

I intended to attend to the FOSDEM as past years but it won't be possible :'( I'm too late for too many things and I have to spend my weekends trying to catch with those things.

I wanna attend to the Java DevJam but I removed my name. I hope I'll be able to fix things and meet another time or next year.

Will Alexendria support XMLRPC or SOAP interface

I've just tried the Mylyn Eclipse plug-in and it's really a great plug-in to manage tasks, bugs and so. It's capable to show only files you shoudld be working on, count time you spend on a task and update task note or comment it. I did not try the Bugzilla or Trac connector but the Generic web connector to interact with Sourceforge.

An very good feature would be a better interaction with Sourceforge, but reading bug reports against Mylyn, the blocker is an XMLRPC or a SOAP interface to the Sourceforge bug tracking software. That's why I filed a bug at Sourceforge

Eclipse with IcedTea on Debian Lenny PowerPC

Mise en ligne par avdyk
I just launch it and was so surprised that I wanna blog about it. I don't know how it works but Eclipse starts as fast enough for me (maybe faster than IBM's JVM, I don't know) and I can't beleive it! :-D

Read previous blog to have instructions to build it (and again thanks to Sun, Gary Benson and all those who make it possible!)

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
