There was fixing of yet more xterm bugs! At least these were mainly ones I introduced, so therefore I could find them. :-) Also much hacking on a new Gujarati renderer, which can share something like 90% of the code with the Devanagari renderer. Started making an appropriate font. Progress slow due to not being able to read Gujarati.


Stared lots at Gujarati glyphs and managed to cobble together a couple of fonts that work. These have gone into CVS.

Other indic hacking - I'm making all the Indic renderers indicate invalid sequences better, and share more code between them. And some other bits and pieces.

Got some feedback re: the Devanagari renderer and keymaps. They work! (Apart from some minor glitches in the keymap). Hopefully this means gtk HEAD will get translated into Hindi soon.

The Future

I've arranged to go to the main UK office next week. Looking forward to this, as I finally get to meet my boss.

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.
