Two more updates to Mandrake Contribs the past couple of days:

  • multi-gnome-terminal: Alexander Skwar seems to have let mgt languish. Basically, I just bumped the version number to 1.6.2...
  • xmmsao: a new version is out (and I'm reaching the point where I'm not so embarassed by it that I'll publish a tarball, instead of just a Mandrake SRPM and RPM... no guarantees on what sort of lag there will be between RPM and tarball releases though). I've finally got a configuration dialog coded (basically nailed it on my first try, despite my only GTK+ experience being with GTKmm... GTK+ in C isn't as painful as I was expecting) and got it to work with the xmms config system. Still TODO: rudimentary mixing and support for ao's file output system.
  • wallpaper-at: a packaging of the wallpapers contained in the debian package of the same name [UPDATE: the package seems to have been removed from contribs... i still have the SRPM if anyone's interested...].

Hopefully, Lenny will give me access to SRPMs in the incoming directory (where SRPMS uploaded by people who do not have write access to contrib are held)... there's a bit of a backlog there... I'll also have to get in touch with Guillaume sometime this summer about making xmmsao the default output plugin for xmms in Mandrake...

I see Nullsoft has released a new P2P collaboration system called waste... I'll have to see if it builds and is packageable also...

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.
