Debian released today! Woohoo! Time to apt-get upgrade a couple dozen boxes all over the place.

Some CUPS status: It builds. Tonight, assuming all goes well, I'll test for upgrade-cleanliness and the like, and upload to woody. I've got some other things to do, though, as well, so we'll see how far I get. I may just upload whatever I end up with tonight and invoke the "it's called unstable for a reason" excuse.

Noticed the Printing Summit stuff from advogato's article on the GPL. Wow. I think I'm going to try and play with some of this at some point - assuming I think it's more important than splitting pstoraster from the rest of CUPS and making straight gs a replacement for it. Assuming that's even possible.

It would be nice if prospective employers would return my phone calls when I ask for a status report.

Welcome one and all. This site looks interesting, and even if I never get anywhere on the rating system, it at least provides me with a chance to post rants and other stuff. Which could be a good thing, or not.

The biggest thing: lots of people have asked me about CUPS 1.1 packages for Debian woody. So, here's my status.

I had almost working packages for beta 3 not too long ago; there were only some upgrade issues from 1.0.4. Then I merged in 1.1.1. Now the thing doesn't build; it appears easysw did some fun stuff with the build parameters and such. So, I'm slogging away at it. I'm a bit distracted with some personal issues at the moment, but hopefully we'll get this done soon.

Well, enough for now. Enjoy my simply scintillating prose!

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.
