So, it's been a month since I updated this so I think it's about time. I've been running valgrind on random stuff in GNOME lately.

So far I've gone through

- gnome-applets and some underlying stuff in libpanel-applet gnome-vfs libgnomeui and libbonobo

- gnome-terminal

- gnome-media

- gnome-utils

- file-roller

There's plenty of leaks left for someone else to hit on so fire up valgrind and start filling up bugzilla with reports and more importantly...PATCHES!

Other than that I went fishing in the mountains a couple of weeks ago and got this nice trout:

My nice catch

Autumn is great :-)

Went down to play some 9-ball last night and ended up playing a tournament of 14-1 instead and becoming a member of the club. Lost the first match, won the next two, lost the fourth and was out. I will have my revenge some other time :-)

Been setting up the latest beta of Red Hat Linux lately and I've got it to a point where I can run valgrind on the GNOME stuff. Hope to be able to get it slimmed down a bit now, and already trimmed off a 100kb in gucharmap while setting the stuff up.

Release is imminent and I've been struggling to get the translations updated too, but it's just too much. On the bright side I've recruited two new translators for bokmål/nynorsk so we're in for more action there from now on I hope.


So, GNOME 2.2.2 is definitely going out soon :)

The last stopper bug was fixed a couple of days ago by making the sound recorder use an older scheduler in gstreamer. Kudos to Ronald Bultje for fixing it.

Bought myself a DVD player and ten movies the other day so I won't mind a couple of days of rain this weekend. Looking out the window it seems as if tonight will be DVD day!

The bugsquad has been busy cleaning up bugzilla lately and it seems that we are finally getting the upper hand. Remember - all your boogs are belong to us. We feel certain that victory is at hand. Zarro Boogs baby!

Been slacking here again. I'll pull my act together I promise.

So what's the last year been like? :)

I'm back to maintiaining the stable GNOME release and I must say that maintaining 2.2.x is a much improved situation from 1.4.x. I also rejoined the release team and I'm looking forward to working with the release rockers again.

I'm only missing a couple of modules now before I'll call GNOME 2.2.2 ready for mass consumption. I'll try to get this done before going to GUADEC on friday. Whee! GU4DEC. How time flies. It feels like only yesterday when we were splashing around on a leaking barge in Paris (Perils)? :-)

Have a good one.

Bah. Releasing software to the general public and I can't even operate a diary!? <off to hide in the corner again>

So. People are complaining about the regularity in my diary entries. Hmm. Can't have that... :)

So. What's new? Bugfixing in GNOME 1.4.x is still happening and I think the last panel crash will have to wait until after 1.4.1 to be squashed. The upside is that we will actually have a 1.4.1 release _before_ 2.0. <Watch this space>

Other than that we've had some really good weather in Oslo lately which of course coincided with me having to work overtime to finish specifications for a purchase we're doing. Anyway, today we finished it, and now I'm leaving work with a smile on my face.

/me wakes up again

...one year has passed since last time - what?!

Well, I quit my job and I'm looking for something new now. It really felt good so I guess it was the right decision. i18n work is progressing as always and I've even recruited a few people to help me along. Whee!!

Let's see if I manage to keep this diary up2date in the future.

Today I've done very little besides playing with my son and compiling up a new evolution...

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
