Still bitching over how to "solve" the interactivity problems. People seem pretty happy with Con's latest patch, but I still prefer a solution without the interactivity estimator, such as Nick Piggin's. Oh well.

64-bit dev_t support seems to be almost there, if not there. I smell 2.6.0 soonish.


procps 2.0.15 is out. Lots new -- this is a good release. New vmstat(8), with an O(1) algorithm, I/O wait support, unit selection, removal of the dumb "swapped" field, and oh-so-much cleaner code. Also new pmap(1), with new features, Solaris-like formatting, and a GPL license (replacing a BSD-like license).

The future for procps looks good. Next up is cleaning up libproc severely. I have a series of patches to turn it into a Real Library.


schedutils 1.3.3 is out. Small release: support for Alpha and PA-RISC and some cleanup.

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.
