I haven't posted much lately. I really should work on that.


Things have become quite interesting lately. We have some news coming that I'm not sure if public yet or not, but I myself am working on a few Gaim-related projects.

First, Gaim for Qtopia v0.4 is about to be released, featuring message notification and beautiful support for 640x480. It makes me want to write a similar UI for my Linux box.

Second, I'm beginning work on a text-based UI toolkit called patui, which will be the base for a console gaim. Unfortunately, writing a UI toolkit takes a while, so I'm not sure when work on nc-gaim (ncurses-gaim) will start.

We're hopefully releasing gaim 0.73 soon. It was delayed due to some logging bugs we discovered, but the sooner we can get it out, the better.

Adium is using an experimental version of our libgaim in their Adium IM client for MacOS X. I'm really looking forward to trying that out :)


Things with my girlfriend have been great. We've now been together over two months, and I don't think either of us have any complaints :) We'll be having a kind of Christmas together sometime before or after Christmas. I'm looking forward to it. I think she'll like what I got her.


School, on the other hand, is nice and stressful, as always. I have a report due Friday, and a small one due tomorrow. I've been fighting the flu, but now it's kind of winning the fight for the moment. I didn't even attend school today, which is too bad because I really needed to. I'll probably continue with the bigger report in a few minutes.
