Saturday -- the day of rest, goofing off, and much Compass hacking.

Accompanied Rea to the mall, followed by the movie "What Women Want". Mel Gibson can be extremely amusing at times, and Helen Hunt always is. I'd reccommend the movie to anyone as a solid, entertaining experience. (Sinatra laden soundtracks always help.) :)

Compass: I finished the (hopefully) last of the Z-order list creation optimizations -- everything works much better now. In addition, I also threw in a quick implementation of a Snap-To feature, which I find really fun to play with!

Ted and I nailed down the list of growing tasks earlier this evening. Wow, you might even say that we're organized!

Speaking of cool new features, Ted finished up his latest Christmas hacking by contributing the new Geometry code to store the relative placement of Pager Windows. Someone treat this guy to a Spiked Eggnog!

On to Hotkey support, and then that promised alpha build might even appear on an updated website. But only if you ask Santa really nicely. ;-)

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.
