After KDOC got a new(ish) lease of life from the KDE java binding work that Richard Dale did, I was inspired to add python support to it. It was surprisingly easy, parsing python is trivial. Most of the work went into preparing kdoc to accept another parser backend. Now I've done that, I guess I can properly incorporate the java and Objective C parsers that have been lying around rotting for a year. It's nice to be able to get python API docs in a familiar format, it basically looks exactly like the KDE API docs (for better or worse...)

I'm done with the plumbing for my finance app now, linked controllers and views seem to work perfectly now so I can spend some time making it look pretty and generating nice reports. It would be a useful exercise to try to replace gadfly with something like postgres, too.

KDE 2.1 is just so l33t. That time spent reworking the guts of kdelibs from the 1.x days sure paid off in the end. I'm constantly amazed at the lego-like flexibility of our framework. It's all coming together...
