I just publicly posted the first release of my Python Interface To BerkeleyDB 3.0 . Check it out if you're into that sort of thing.

In other news, I'm heading off to the UK for two weeks vacation tomorrow. I wanted to get the py-bsddb3 thing out there before I left in hopes that someone will discover, report and fix a bug while I'm gone. :)

Grr.. I spent most of the day trying to track down a bug that was appearing in my Python interface to BerkeleyDB 3.0 causing the python process coredump (*gasp*)! I believe I finally tracked it down to a bug in the BerkeleyDB 3.0.55 library when aborting a transaction while using subdatabases, it'll be interesting to hear back from them on this one. I sent them a simply example in C that reproduces it on my system.

For anyone interested, I'll be releasing my Python BerlekeyDB 3.0 interface very soon and will post a note here as well as to sleepycat and on freshmeat.

PS if anyone actually reads these, A certification would be cool.

A friend just introduced me to advogato.org today. I'm impressed (and a personal fan of reputation systems). I see much more intelligent and useful technical issue discussions here than that other dot.org will ever be capable of.

More later... Certification would be useful for those who know me from linux-usb or cfengine (perl-cfd).

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.
