Freshmeat page:


Workrave is a program that assists in the recovery and prevention of Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI). The program frequently alerts you to take micro-pauses, rest breaks and restricts you to your daily limit.

Currently, the program runs on GNU/Linux and Microsoft Windows. The GNU/Linux version depends on Gnome, whereas the Windows version is ported using the GTK toolkit.

The design of the program has a clear separation between the GUI front-end and the core back-end, making ports to other environments (e.g. KDE) childs play: the programmer only needs to hook up a few windows. He does not have to worry about timers and input monitoring, all that is taken care of by the core. Any volunteers?

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
