  • Grant Cheston details his experiences in - ``getting a moderate size collection of Eiffel projects to run on ISE Eiffel, Visual Eiffel and SmallEiffel'' - NICE is working hard at addressing these issues.

  • Sven submit's a link to GTI's Linux Gnome Desktop for Windows

  • Pragmatic Programmer Dave Thomas took his life in his hands - presented Ruby to the local Perl Monger's chapter. It went very well: they were very receptive to the ideas behind Ruby, and we all had a great time

Worked on ccl's PROGRESSBAR control with some success. Further testing is required before commiting to the CVS.

Used SmallEiffel to generate a dll from a simple test class using lcc-win32. Loaded the resulting dll from a C program and called a function successfully. On the second invocation, the program crashed. Will look into further, but this is a good start - must writeup details! Starting resources include Dynamic Libraries With C++ (for win32/Linux) (highly recommended), SmallEiffel dll summary and Jacob Navia's excellent lcc-win32 documentation.

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
