Lot's of things happening here.
We had a great Mega BOF
at Mataró, most of the developers participated, we even got John to fly in from Boston for the meeting! Plenty of things discussed, we know have a better idea of what needs to be improved and what we're going to do over the next few months.
GNOME 2.10 feature freeze is just around the corner. I have a big patch from Gustavo to merge to be able to implement virtual methods. Once they're in we can finally subclass GtkContainer and GtkCellRenderer properly. And with just a little more work interfaces should be implementable as well.
On the application side it seems like the next version
will use PyGTK. The ui looks a lot nicer, but still has some issues (resizing, no file chooser). The cool thing is that it's also used on win32, which means our user base will increase by millions.Life
December went by very quickly. Travelled a lot, from Ulricehamn in the country side of Sweden to Rio de Janeiro for Christmas. Finally settled down in Brazil. It's great to be back here, even I haven't realized how much I missed things here. But not for too long, a trip to Asia is not far on the horizon.
