Have not post for a long time. Ignoring my personal problemas, some regarding college, I have been in some local free software events, like Encontro Mineiro de Software Livre em early April and Encontro Nacional Linuxchix in late April, both in Belo Horizonte, Brasil. Last week I went to Porto Alegre to be in FISL (Fórum Internacional de Software Livre). Well, all those three events gave me the chance to meet new people, make new friendships and discuss about some projects.
One of those is jabber-br, a non-software project. It's a group of people (users and developers) that will promote jabber and xmpp in Brasil. I am building a client right now and intend to do something in Google Summer Code (although I don't like Google a lot).
I have been learning a little more on GTK+, have used a little of libgnutls, and like GNET a lot. Studying a little of GObject and GLib in general, I hope to build a very modular and extensible application, although, some times, I think that contributing to Gaim would be a good idea.
However, I've been working in some projects that will need my own code. Perhaps, I will build a library containing what I may reuse when writing something for Gaim (perhaps, any other client).
I thinks that's all for now.
