Free-software-related stuff that I've been doing lately:

xhippo had a release to get all the small fixes that I've done in the last six months or so out into the world. My to-do list for xhippo is still fairly large; I really need to find a big block of time to catch up on all the stuff I want to do with it.

GARstow continues to grow; I was slightly surprised to count the packages and find I'd built 428 ports for it. (Most of which I have installed on my desktop machine, scarily enough.) I'm not aware of anyone else using it, but it's generated some interest.

onenetd now has at least one major user and is packaged in FreeBSD (thanks, Tim!). I haven't been able to break it lately, although I have a couple of ideas for new features; per-address limiting being the one that would be most useful at the moment.

I was surprised to get patches for freedt from two different people in the same week. It's now got a mailing list and (small) user community, and I've done quite a bit of development work on it in the last couple of weeks, shaking out bugs, improving interfaces and cleaning up the code.

vdesk was the real surprise. I'd written this way back when I used to use aewm, never really used it myself, and only packaged it up for completeness value -- so it came as a bit of a shock to peer at my web logs and discover that not only do other people use it, but evilwm actually has code explicitly supporting it...
