I have been doing a lot of work on Octal's graphical interface. I want very much for the program to reach usable beta as soon as is possible, and since I have this entire week off I'm going to try the best I can to bring it there.

The new widget builder is in place... the most common three widgets are implemented and functioning. I also incorporated a little bug-fix that solves a glitch in the connection drawing code; thanks to Richard Todd from the mailing list.

Check out the screenshots page to see pics. The weekly tarball should be online Sunday evening.

In other news, I am very pleased to hear that Gnu.org is modernizing its administration tools. I was recently told that updating of www.gnu.org has been moved entirely to CVS (which means I finally have to learn it :-). Overall this is a good thing---as has been their use of SSH tools on some machines in the gnu network. I just never could get Kerberos working correctly for very long... it always seemed to break. Kudos to GNU for upgrading.
