ISO C

The current standard for C, is ISO 9899:1999, not :1990 The standardisation work for this was done entirely by ISO (which ANSI are a member organisation of, of course).

Life

Continued hacking on xterm to support CJK/Thai. There is a strange selection crashbug still there, but I can't reliably reproduce it. Debugging isn't helped by the fact that the Xterm sourcecode isn't exactly the best example of modular, well-documented code.

Continued hacking on Indic script support for Pango. I have discovered my X server crashes when it tries to access a BDF file with a longer-than-1024-chars-long line. Must find out if XF86 4 does this and report it if so.

Need to if there is a standard Sinhala keyboard layout. This seems to be just about the only Indic script that doesn't fit well onto the Inscript keyboard layout that I'm using to enter all the other scripts. (due to the prenalised stops). Please let me know if you do...

Driving lessons going well, haven't crashed into anything or killed anyone yet. (this is a good sign).

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.
