Finally, the new MDK version is released. I'm already thinking of further enhancements. I read a very nice tutorial introduction to Guile, and plan to add Scheme extensibility to MDK (following an idea hinted by Philip (hey, Philip, are you there?)). Also, i restarted reading SICP: lots of fun.

Definitely, i must learn perl. A colleague at work has shown me some really neat meta-programming tricks that i'd like to investigate. The camel book is already open on my desk, together with a bunch of tutorials (including a very good one about Gtk-Perl): maybe in a few weeks i could start hacking the FreeBSD ports manager idea.

A nice guy from GNU Spain contacted me a couple of days ago. They seem to have a lot of good ideas for promoting the Free Software community and philosophy in Spain. I plan to get as deeply involved as time (and hacking) allows. Please, if you live in Spain, consider getting involved too: we need lots of help!.
