This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Chewed mail in the morning; wrote mail - hacking is much
more fun than E-mail it seems. Lunch.
Pushed feature/gtk3 to master, that should make it easier
for people to find. It touches a large number of the unix VCL
backends, so testing appreciated. It implements:
Build / run-time testing much appreciated as/when tinderboxen
produce binaries. Chat with Thorsten.
- implements an (unfinished) but 'pure' gtk3 port
- avoiding direct X library linkage
- enables broadway / web-office prototype
- cleanly re-uses svp for client-side rendering
- churns synchronous debug, performs badly,
is unfinished etc. [ should default to off ]
- improves the svp (headless) rendering code
- avoids direct X library linkage
- thus making targetting Android / iOS possible
- substantially accelerates rendering by working
around many clipping performance issues
- adds damage detection to svp rendering surfaces
- partial / aborted attempt to make svp fully cross-platform,
blocked on an internal freetype or more re-factoring.
- re-factoring / cleanup
- shares lots of code between gtk, svp and gen backends
lots of cut/paste code eliminated
- ports lots of gtk2 code to use gdk wrappers instead of
raw X, to share with gtk3
- re-working of misc. legacy cross-platform code.
Misc. idl Windows cross-compile, warning while re-builds
happened. Re-wrote a custom GSource for timer handling to avoid an
annoying warning on older glibs. Downloaded the latest openSUSE 12.1
Admin, downloaded some SDKs to play with.

Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
