gnome-games

The 2.7.1 release is ready to go, hopefully tonight there will be a place to actually upload it to. There is a hideous number of new features in this release, the most recent being a new score dialog for gnomine. If it goes down well I'll use it for all the games.

Another big change is that gnometris now supports drag-and-drop for setting the background image. In fact this is now the only way to set the background. At the moment it doesn't work that well, it only seems to work with nautilus and it is not very intelligent about whether to scale or tile an image, but I'm working on it. I'm sure the similarity between the apsect ratios of a Playboy center-fold scan and the gnometris playing area is a coincidence.

I have also euthanised Klotski since it had very limited replayability and no one seems to be actually play it. I don't have any plans to remove any other games in the near future.

Life

Work is going well. Non-work is going well. The weather has even been nice (well, as nice as autumn ever is).

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.
