Hmm, I wonder how well the diary portion of advogato will scale in the future. Will it still be readable and a viable platform for the exchange of views, for example if the number of diary entries increases a lot. What happens if between the time you log off, to the time you log on the number of messages puts your entry and any replies off the most recent diary pages, how will you find them?

It seems that it is being used for a whole mishmash of different purposes, from professional diary to personal, and a method of informal chat about advogato itself. Perhaps a more specialised approach would be a good idea, categories perhaps? Any ideas people?

Anyway, work on Codesoup is going okay with a seperate (slower) sub-project for visualisation and program design being near alpha release. A few problems include slightly different behaviour of the programs (they don't seem to evolve as fast) and trying to figure out automake so that it will include the sub-project and a known bug in the visualisation. Anyway once those are sorted it should be time for another release.

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.
