OK.. more SUN rants... Lovely way to patent an obvious technology. This should seriously conflict with XPointer.

Just finished documentation for JavaCore. I have been working on this for ~1 hour every week for a while now (no time). I needed it for Sierra so I cleaned up a lot of things. Works like a charm. :)

It would be nice to implement JPDA support so that Thread stack information, etc, could be provided. It is amazing how clueless SUN is WRT Java. They have such an awesome language but the licensing makes it impossible to use. If they would just pull their heads out of the sand (they still think it is 1994) they would realize they are destroying an awesome technology. (GNU Java Compiler will be a big slap in their face when it ships with GCC 3.0).

Of course I go to look at the source for JPDA (or at least the JavaDoc) and this is only provided under the SUN Community Source License. Yuk. Should actually be called the SUN *DESTROYING* Their Community License.

.. starting to hate this HTML diary interface. Time to write an Advogato posting mechanism for Emacs.

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.
