Notes: Hush is a full object-oriented programming language, based loosely on Smalltalk. Features include typeless data, polymorphism, dynamic method binding, static and dynamic object bases, mixin support, multiple threads, garbage collection, a fully embeddable virtual machine, separate compilation with linker.

The core program (text only) runs on Unix, Cygwin, Windows, and there is a graphics bindings for X11.

Hush allows rapid development of small programs and is intended as a general purpose language for quick solutions to problems. it also encourages proper object-oriented techniques. It differs significantly from Smalltalk in the construction of a class and the flow control of the methods; it is more like a traditional procedural language. It is not intended to be a full system like Smalltalk, but rather executes as a stand-alone program.

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
