Uraeus: You do an excellent job with the summaries. It's a really important contribution to GNOME, and I hope you keep doing it!

GNOME

Now that the property page stuff for nautilus is done (well, mostly), I decided to also add support for mime-type-sensitive context menus. Michael Meeks had a great idea about how it could be done, and it seems to work pretty well. At this point, the only problem is that there is no way to translate the menu items. Of course, that's unacceptable. Michael has made a suggestion on how to fix it, but it requires hacking bonobo-activation-server, and I am too afraid/lazy/busy-with-other-stuff to do it. I need to get to it soon, though, since the feature freeze for 2.2 is approaching quickly.

File selector flameage has apparently started again, which is always nice. Especially since hadess and I seem to be the target of some of it. People are screaming "listen to the users", but the "users" are all saying different things and just being rude in general. Seriously people, it's just a freaking file selector. There are a helluva lot more important things, even within GNOME. I don't think the current one is all that bad, really. Of course, it's missing the all-important recent-files integration, but whatever :)

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.
