Finally getting some time to get rid of the last persistent bugs, before the first release of Neudist.

I really like the new Virgule stuff on SourceForge and will try to come up with a way of integrating my secure URL Caps with virgule. Mod_virgule has a lot of cool account management features and the whole trust metric concept that would be cool for use with online entities.

Just noticed in my last diary entry that I was talking about security in Ozone. I actually came up with a way of allowing and disallowing connections from certain addresses. There has been some problems with their CVS server for a few days, but it looks like it's back up again now, so I'll create a patch and submit it to the maintainer.

While doing my Day job in London, I'm on the train 5 hours a day, which I'm currently using for my own little experiment in creating Cyber Entities - NeuDist.

I had to delay the launch as I discovered a new Object database called Ozone. I've been working with it the past two weeks or so, it's pretty cool and has a persistent DOM in it based on openxml. I've been having problems with the fairly nonexistent security model though, so I might have to work a bit on that and submit it to the ozone group.

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.
