Older blog entries for rcassin (starting at number 4)

Fixed 47574 today. 47703 and 47704 are on my plate to be fixed by Tuesday

School has started and life is way too busy. I've begun my work on Publish -- more later about that. I have Friday and Monday off this week so I'll try to create a more detailed entry later :)

ugh, school is here :(

Anyways, I currently can't build ever since things were converted to JARs -- perl crashes during the build. JAR also is a problem for Dino because we're using XPIs which no longer will be compatible. (offtopic) In other news, I've finished the first working version of a database I'm coding for my school. In Sept. I really really want to begin (and finish!) coding on Publish...IMHO, it's really important

Plans for next week
Fix more nsbeta3+ ... although my progress will be severely hampered by school :(

Dino has been keeping me busy this weekend. Basically, it is a set of patches to Mozilla which won't [ever] show up in the main tree. Included are functions like adding the bookmarks menu to the personal toolbar and being able to add or remove toolbar buttons at will. With the recent addition of the Print button to the Mozilla toolbar (which is ugly and out of place) Dino has been very popular. Check it out at dino.sourceforge.com. Right now, we're trying to hook a prefs panel up to the add and remove toolbar button function. (8:30pm) Just posted an article about Dino to Mozillazine.org, it should show up tomorrow. Cool stuff.

And now, the bad news. School starts Thursday and that will severely limit my ability to touch Mozilla. Very bad indeed.

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.
