htop now on Subversion

After a few message exchanges with the sf.net bugtracking team, my development tree of htop is finally online on the Subversion repository. I never wanted to put it up there on CVS but now that sf.net supports SVN and I finally embraced the joys of revision control, I was motivated enough to do it.

Here's the web interface to the htop SVN repository. To fetch the sources, type:

svn checkout https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/htop/trunk htop

(After checking out the sources, run sh autogen.sh to create the configure script and friends.)

A new release of htop is long overdue by now. It should follow shortly, I hope. I got a few new bug reports I need to nail down first.

BTW, this post reminds me of an old SVN-inspired parody I wrote a while ago. Check it out if you're a Rush fan. :-)

An intro to the software patents issue for non-programmers

I stumbled on an interesting article on software patents written by Richard Stallman. Nothing new, but it's written in a fairly non-technical language, so it's a good link to direct your non-programmer friends to. Found it through this pretty interesting blog on "intellectual property".

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.
