Java-GNOME 2.10 beta 1 is out. I have been working on a complete rewrite of the build system (with the help of Thomas Fitzsimons). The new build is fully automake/libtool enabled and is a major simplification over the old approach. 2.10 is really shaping up to be our best release ever.

We are already looking forward to our next development cycle. I am hoping to get our gnomevfs bindings included in the officail GNOME Bindings Release. I also want to start dbus and cairo bindings. It sounds like a lot but I am really motivated now!!

Andrew Overholt put together a great flash presentation demonstrating native eclipse, glade, and java-gnome. You can view it here.

Java-GNOME 2.9.4 was released last Monday. There were major enhancements for bindings including full support for gdk-pixbuf, support for GObject properties set/get/notify, and the addition of missing gdk, atk, and pango APIs. This release also marked our API freeze for the 2.9 development period. Our focus has now shifted to fixing any remaining bugs, updating documentation and examples, and I am currently working on getting libgtk-java to build on the Windows platform. Should be fun.

Will I have 64-bit support for libgtk-java, libgnome-java and libgconf-java. Nick complete 64-bit support for libglade-java. I guess I am making good progress.

I guess I have to start some time. I am currently working on adding support for 64-bit platforms to the java-gnome language bindings. This has turned out to be a larger effort than I estimated so I am spending many late hours hacking when I should be sleeping. Hopefully I will have the libgtk-java library completed by the weekend and will tackle the remaining libraries next week.

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.
