Nice to see interest raising in hubackup lately, as this blog post might suggest.

Recently I was joined by Martin Bergner (giftnudel) that now actively helps with excellent bug fixing and improving the various back ends I originally wrote for the program. It seems that with maybe another person like him, we could aim and reach high for releasing a very high quality, very focused solution for Feisty that would be included in main and supported by us. However, fear not! even if this does not happen I plan to work until I drop, to have as mentioned solution for edgy+1.

I've also set yesterday to think up how should the accompanying meta file used for mime type association.

My main goals at sight are finishing the mime type support, which would enable me to fix hurestore, since hurestore now relies on being invoked using mime-type association against the meta file in question, move to adjust it to the new GUI that was designed in UDS Paris and by this reach the development milestones.

We would then move on to fixing bugs through the development cycle and make sure no exception or error can go un-noticed or not propagated to the user in a clean, easy to understand manner.

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.
