I spent yesterday moving my friend Ben into his new place that he just got in Back Bay. It's a nice place and I'm pretty jealous of his location. My arms are pretty sore but it's a good sore.

Needless to say I didn't get a lot of Mozilla-related things done. I spent a lot of time last week working on the Mozilla 0.9.1 release. It's turned out to be a really good release. It's pretty stable, pretty fast and people are able to use it for their day to day use. Check it out.

What interesting things have I been hacking on recently?

Let's see. Killing bugs, as usual. Making things faster. I gave scrolling and expose handling a swift kick in the ass in Mozilla and things are a lot faster now. I also rewrote all the focus handling in Mozilla and killed a couple of problems in the process.

I've also been hacking on embedding and I can't believe it, people are actually using my code.

Panic Attack

Someone recently posted an article here about how:

AOL management has ordered the Mozilla team to remove a configuration option that can be used to block ads.

Funny, I'm on the Mozilla team and I didn't have any jack booted thugs from AOL banging down my door. Anyway, if you go look at the bug in question you will see that the feature in question hasn't been removed, it's just off by default.

I spend much of the weekend working on focus code for Mozilla. It now plays nice with the Gtk focus system. For a long time it wouldn't forward events to the right window if a Mozilla window didn't have focus. This means that it works right in the embedding case. I haven't checked it in yet because there's some question as to how it affects some of the XIM code that's in there. I'm still waiting to hear back from some people at Sun about that.

You can now also create a Mozilla window as a the child of any random GtkContainer. This means you don't need to muck with the superwin to be able to create Mozilla widgets. Your widget still has to be realized to do this but the gtk embedding widget that I've been working on hides most of that complexity.

I also worked on signal callbacks for things like mouse over messages and progress and the status of loading pages. I haven't done the actual signal code yet but that's a breeze once I get the infastructure in place. That infastructure is mostly in place now.
