Commited my customizable default list enhancement to character picker yesterday. Yeah I know, gnome-applets is in feature freeze, but charpick's uselessness is itself a bug, and officially it is still in alpha, even though it's going into its second stable release soon; (figure that one out.) Kudos to George for adding the panel size/orient hint fixes, and fixing the broken properties stuff, and to the others who have fixed bugs. I've slacked off in developing charpick since I no longer use it myself; (if I had known about xmodmap I'd never have written it in the first place.) But once gtk supports Unicode, charpick will once again become interesting, so I'm keeping it on the back burner.

Front burner projects include my pitch-pipe applet, for which I'll use bse as a backend for producing sound, and a sawmill theme, code-named Xiqatclapgú. Clipboard applet, (and my whole ill-concieved multiple selection + metadata project,) is really a no burner project for the moment, and would probably be an embarassment if it goes into gnome-applets 1.2 as it stands.

I am planning in the long term to play with adding metadata imformation to x selections, and am looking at writing a gedit plugin as a testbed. So to get my bearings I have been playing with the reverse plugin, so that it will reverse just the selection if there is one, rather than the whole buffer. Fun.

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.
