WOW - Well Mikael sprung the question to me on Sunday - would I like to co-maintain Gossip with him and I could hardly resist. There have been a lot of crazy things going on in the code repository over the last few months and we are starting to see things stable out a bit.

It was good to see Davyd Madeley show off a cool shot of Gossip in action.

Some of the cool stuff going into Gossip at the moment includes drag and drop support (being added back and more), basic functionality for group/user renaming, creating, etc has been put right. One of the most important implementations is the subscription handling (which was borked along the way) bug has been worked out and the result is this.

Overall we are looking good for a new release soon hopefully.

Next thing to sort out is the generic interface for the transport code I wrote a few months back, anyone interested, this (couldn't think of a better way to document it than through dia) is the API that needs condensing - comments welcome

Loudmouth on Windows - I have been thinking about this for a month or two now and people have been commenting at various times about it working on Windows on the mailing list. I think when I next find time, I will look into getting loudmouth working out of gnu's auto tools under MSYS/MinGW. Shouldn't take long, I had a butchers at it this morning - what this space [ ] :)

New Blogggger - I think it is time to sort out a proper blogging system on my newly aquired server. Advogato is good but I just set up Blam! and realised the title never comes out - plus I can't post images :/
