After the new ports integrated to the CVS tree, I guess I can declare Sarien as a fairly cross-platform project:

  • The Amiga port now operates in windowed/full-screen modes (switchable at runtime) with AHI sound, and is buildable with gcc and DICE.
  • The MacOS X Cocoa port is working fine, native sound drivers are in the works.
  • Sega Dreamcast, with working sound.
  • A PocketPC port runs in WinCE-based handhelds. kojima tested the Linux version in his iPAQ and it seems to run fine too.
  • QNX: full-screen and windowed modes are available in the Photon driver, sound uses the ALSA driver.
  • MS-DOS: both 16 and 32-bit versions available.
  • BeOS: uses SDL.
  • Win32: native and SDL versions available.
  • POSIX: Known to run on Linux (IA32, IA64, PPC, S/390, Alpha), FreeBSD, IRIX, AIX and Solaris. Some problems in OpenBSD have been reported.
Todo list: PalmOS, MacOS 7/8/9, Atari ST, Playstation, Microwindows/Nano-X, OS/2.

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.
