I've written a few projects that didn't really go anywhere:

  • Fanorona for GNOME, an implementation of a traditional game from Madagascar. This one has gotten some participation from others (mostly people offering translations into their langauges, once I got it internationalized).
  • roamd, a minimal HTTP server, just enough HTTP to support Netscape Communicator's roaming access.
  • doxml, an LGPL XML parser. I wrote it because the FSF's task list mentioned an XML parser; only later did I find out about libxml.
  • An instant messaging framework in Java. The goal was to create a way for the IMPP working group to compare protocol proposals; the problem was that there weren't any protocol proposals on the table.

I've also contributed fixes to kaffe, gcj, and fetchmail. As for my commercial work, you can see my résumé.

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
