MDK. The new, Guile-aware version of MDK is finally out. It took ages to finish the new user's manual's chapters, but i think it's been worth the effort. And the next version will be even better: i've just received a mail from fxn with lots of insightful comments on the docs. It is people like him that make writting free software such a pleasure.

Job. The new job at scytl is really rewarding and exciting. Quality is our motto, and i've got here the rare chance of practising software engineering the way i think it must be done. That means lots of work, but pleasant work it is (as we say in Spain, sarna con gusto no pica). We are using LaTeX for writting technical docs, and it's really a joy: i'm having lots of fun re-discovering it in its full power. I've been also reading C++ stuff: Meyer's Effective and More Effective C++ books, and the really superb Exceptional C++ by Herb Sutter. Returning to C++, after all those months in the barren lands of Java, makes me feel like a real programmer again!
