kai: As you may have noticed, I've released a new bootstrap and set of snapshots for TOM. I've also updated the website to reflect some of the changes that have taken place within the last year. :)

If you file bugs against the GTK+ bindings for TOM, I'd be happy to look into fixing them. I'm less enthusiastic about fixing the GNOME parts, but may be willing to fix that as well. Alternatively, I'd happily accept patches!

About the TOM VM, there is a TOM VM written. It hasn't been well tested due to the lack of a bytecode compiler. We'll get to that at some point. :) We're working on other TOM projects at the moment though, so it may take a while.

maelstorm: Tiggr, the author of TOM, hasn't had the time to work on it, no. I've pretty much taken over maintenance of it though.

I've been fixing bugs and working on some smalls thing with it, mainly in figuring out what's involved in adding a MOP to get the mostly-native performance that I need, but with with the dynamicism that I'm used to having. I just released a new bootstrap last night and will be doing an update to the website tonight or tomorrow to reflect some of the changes in things. (Tesla is now the recommended compiler over the old one written in Objective C.)

Once some of that is worked out, I'd expect to see something more being done on Cubik, as until then, there isn't much use.

neale: Yes, that is the same Colin.

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.
