We'll i have been slacking off lately, mostly working to much at work and not enough on Entity.

We are becoming more and more commited to Entity at work, and i have some features i need in entity for work so i think i am going to add them RSN.

  • color attributes for all tags
  • better trees
  • cleaner url handling

I guess i did get something done sence last time...
Using owen's memprof tool i found and fixed most of the major leaks in Entity. I must admit its a darn nice tool and because of it , i probably won't need to get Purify for at work.

Recently added the clist to Entity, but tonight i picked back up on my little pet e-mail client written in Entity. I plan on using the url code for doing all the networking in the client which should be pretty easy to add in.

While working, i was thinking that maybe i should see about adding a mime tag that could do multipart mime for the programmer. I'm thinking i'll email the mutt authors and see if they have a problem with thier mime code being linked into entity as an lgpl library.

I really wish more code was BSD licensed but i can't complain too much. :)

Well we (The Entity Core Team) made a release of entity today to freshmeat. It wasn't on the main page long, but we probably got quite a few hits.

Now that the 0.5.0 release is out of the way i have been working on the clist code so that we can provide a good way to display large amounts of data to the user. I'm modeling the xml tag naming after html tables. I know that most people don't like html tables but i think the dislike it mostly a product of the crappy browsers and not the spec.

I now work for cylant technology, over at www.cylant.com. A guy i work with there and i wrote a neat little document annotation program in entity in about 30 minutes. (Its included in entity core dist in the apps/ dir as docuwhr.e

Anyway, i'm really proud of the way this entity release has turned out and wanted to share my enthusiasm. So, give it a try and tell Ian(Slow) and me what you think. :)

be sure to look for my diary entries for continuing Entity propoganda...

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.
