Since I haven't dropped in in a while, I thought I'd add in a new diary entry. I have things to reply to. Lots of interesting articles here.

Also, gmage was dropped due to cheating concerns, and the (contestable) fact that Delphi for Linux will be out RSN. The Windows version of the program is written in Delphi, too, so it'll be interesting to see how it comes out. It's just a pity that I don't like Pascal/Delphi any more. Oh well.

ghaz has got me started on another project which we've tentatively dubbed "agatha". It's aiming to be a Linux port of the Mac program "Sherlock". Currently things are looking much better (you can't cheat in a program which consults search engines), however the HTML side of things is looking a bit spaghetti-like.

If anyone can tell me about a nice library that can interpret HTML... Oh, and preferably is not CVS, since I'm all firewalled up here. I might look into libgtkhtml soonish.

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.
