Since I've not received any response yet, I decided to upload it to my web page.
Well, let's see:
I released froofyJIT 0.26.
Also, I experimented with using froofyJIT to speed up TiMidity++ -- profiling revealed that when processing Rakhmaninov's G minor prelude, it was spending ~1/4 of its time in do_ch_freeverb(), which is static optimization hell. After some hacking, here's the result: a tidy big patch which reduces the running time on this file by ~4%.
The patch probably isn't suitable for the TiMidity++ mainline though, especially since it's in C++, while the rest of the TiMidity++ code is in ye olde C.
Update: the patch is now stashed in the froofyJIT 0.27 tarball.
fzort informed me that the glyph rendering was bogotified on Internet Explorer:
After more than half a day of hacking, I finally managed to stop IE from rendering the extra stuff below each glyph, and work around IE's PNG transparency bug... and in the process I also learnt about the clip: rect(...) CSS property. :)
Here's the result.
MarkAtwood: Who exactly wrote that, and where exactly did he write that? I hope it's not another of those "let's attribute this fake quote to some famous luminary" things.
