BreadBoard goes into production next week.

Had some problems with the SSL patch I put into Squid, so I'm reworking that. Also, postfix and squid seemed to get in each other's way a bit, so I'm not running the both on the same box any more. Also had to do some hacking around the ISC DHCP client's resolv.conf creating stuff for one box, which has given me some more ideas for things that need to be configurable (ie, listen to bits of DHCP config or not).

A belated thank-you to John Baldwin and Paul Saab for making the PXE loader stuff in FreeBSD work, and for putting up with me pestering them about it. =)

Well, coming up on the first in-production use of BreadBoard. I'll try and post a brief run-down on what the hell BreadBoard is soonish, but it's basically a net (or CD eventually) bootable stripped back FreeBSD, with facilities for plugging in modules that do stuff (eg, squid, postfix, named, etc).

The major thing I want to add to it soon is firewall support and some kind of unified configuration interface, but I still need to think about how I want that to work.

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.
