Advogato Status Report

New mod_virgule code went live today on Advogato. See the changelog for the details.

I've refactored some of the page rendering code to simplify the problem of pre-rendering page content for use in template-based pages. This should make the job of converting mod_virgule's hard-coded pages to template-based pages as easy as swapping out three or four lines of code. All the profile pages are now template based, as are the project pages. The new header has been added to all these pages. There are still a handful of hard-coded forms and form result pages. They're next up on the ToDo list.

You may have noticed some experimental social bookmarking links I've added to the article headers. Three social bookmarking sites are supported: Digg, del.icio.us, and Reddit. If you have an account at one or more of these services, try it out and let me know if it works for you. I'd like to get some feedback on this idea. Would you like to see additional bookmarking services included? Which ones? Also, would you like to see this idea extended to blog entries as well as articles? If this turns out to be a handy feature, I may encapsulate all the bookmark icons in some sort of little popup window, something like Alex King's "share this". Then we'd just have one little icon instead of a whole string of them - probably the emerging social bookmarking icon.

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.
