today jedit started working on free swing. it's a bit ugly and slow, but it's by far the largest free swing GUI we've constructed yet. that's rendering on cairo, which seems to be maturing nicely. I also taught the imageio system to use gdk-pixbuf, so now we can load and save most major image formats.
we've upgraded to sqlite 3.0, which does away with most real size restrictions. I put some of my ogg files and digital camera images in it. seems to work. also the current head supports "single file" diffs, commits, reverts, etc. many active development branches now; people are adding features faster than I can keep track. that's quite satisfying.
