School

Monday is the beginning of finals week. I have one final Monday, one Tuesday, and one Wednesday. Then I'm finally done (for the semester). Unfortunately, I've lost all motivation to even study, but since I'm building all of GNOME 2.6cvs right now, I may as well go do that.

GNOME

I'm hoping to do some work on GNOME soon, though I'm not sure exactly where to start. I have a patch (untested, because I'm letting jhbuild build all of GNOME cvs right now) that adds support for the Actions in .desktop files. Basically, when right-clicking a launcher item with an Actions line, you'll get a menu entry for each action.

libcomprex

libcomprex in CVS is finally ready to begin building some modules against, though they won't do much yet. The new API is progressing nicely, and is far better than previous versions. It feels a lot cleaner to use, and should work better and do more, once finished. I still have a long road ahead of me, as I must convert all of the old archive modules over to the new API, as well as finish up the API. I'm hoping to have a development release before the month is up.

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.
