Suspend2

Busy week so far.

We've gone from 2.1.9.13 to .14 to 2.2-rc1 and then 2, all in the space of a few days. The .14 release was mentioned in the last entry - corrupted tree. Then I finally found the cause of an annoying bug, the last one I'd been searching for. That got me happy enough to make 2.2-rc1. This afternoon Linus released 2.6.13-rc7, and I had a few more little fixes to pop in (gcc 3.4 doesn't like being told we're clobbering all the registers, so we have to lie to it, and there was a int vs ul problem with the lzf compressor on amd64). So we're at 2.2-rc2. Now to get on with preparing a git tree.

I thought it might be time to start keeping a blog. Let's see how good I am at using it :).

Did a new release (2.1.9.13) of Suspend2 last night. Tons of bug fixes. Unfortunately my base tree managed to get a bit of corruption - the perils of hard linking files. 2.1.9.14 obviously won't be long coming.

Now to try to get to grips with git.

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.
