After a few days offline for my 30th birthday celebrations and a crappy cold, today I made a small commit to libstdc++, so that GCC 4.3 will have a slightly faster shared_ptr in MT apps. Yay. Bigger shared_ptr improvements to follow now that's out of the way.

I'm also familiarising myself with the forthcoming std::unique_ptr, which is not available in GCC yet (there's an implementation but I think it's waiting on copyright assignment paperwork.) I've now put my foot in my mouth on two mailing lists in threads about deprecating auto_ptr, by moaning about non-issues; I'll try not to do it a third time.

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.
