It's been a while since I updated the blog. Let's see if I can get back in the habit.

I am now a happy, one might say obsessed, Zaurus owner. I've been focusing my development efforts on porting and writing software for it. So far, I've ported 6 packages:

  • Most - A great pager
  • lua - an embedded scripting language
  • Links - a text web browser
  • MM - a QT mounting util.
  • Emacs - I'm just starting the testing on this one.
  • readline - It was already ported by the familiar team, but it was missing some utilities, and I needed the headers for other ports.

    I've released one program of my own, "LightSwitchApplet", which puts a backlight toggle switch on the taskbar.

    I'm now working on enhancements to the Konsole for the Z, allowing me to control the keyboard a little better.

    As soon as the OpenZaurus rom supports IRDA again, I will resume writing the IRDA keyboard device driver for my MicroInnovations wireless keyboard.

    All released code can be found at my website zaurus.zefamily.org or from Sourceforge (look under bkroeze on the files list).

    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.
