Quick entry -

Made a big API change to MOS. Error reporting takes place using exceptions instead of return values. Not really the sort of change you want to make at this stage of coding with 20,000 lines already written, but it actually only took a couple of nights of tedious combing through compiler errors and adding try/catch blocks around all the affected method calls. Wheew. Except for polymorphic typing (which potentially will be one of MOS's most interesting features) it's getting to be feature-complete, which is VERY good, because that means I'll be able to actually work on making it stable, and more interestingly be able to work on MOS applications (MIM and Metaspace.)

Right then, it's past 5:00am, again, so off to bed...

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.
