Syndication: RSS 2.0 switched to using Chora. Woohoo!

Now to fix the bugs they found ...

Other stuff: Been in America for three weeks, went to Siggraph, it was a lot of fun, but nothing of earthshattering coolness got unveiled there. Glitzy though!

What up? Been a while ...

We made a release of Horde-1.3.x yesterday, and a whole bunch of the new modules are going to be snapshotted and cut as tarballs.

Grab the ultra-cool CVSweb viewer Chora now, or check out the demo!

Hrm, work is keeping me busy. I'm going to load WINE onto my OpenBSD laptop, get it ported and working, and then get OpenFX working reliably under it. Now that would rule! Also re-writing IMP's MIME system at the moment into a more 'proper' object model, to support the Horde MIME_Viewer framework and some new features.

OpenFX 1.0 finally got released yesterday, and we hosed our leased line in about 10 minutes as hundreds of concurrent downloads hit us. It's a nice feeling :-)

Off travelling around the States for a month, should be fun - starting in Vegas!

Wow, busy days - been a while! I started my new job with Network Appliance, which totally rules so far :)

Got the final code release from Stuart for OpenFX, and am just going through it and importing into CVS and other administrivia before uploading it to the FTP for a 1.0 release! Here is a nice screenshot to whet your appetite in the meanwhile :-)

Also did a fair bit of Horde stuff, and our CVS-web viewer called Chora is coming along nicely. Put in some branch visualisation stuff, so that you can track the progress of a file across RCS branches more easily. Look at this for an example of what I mean. Should be releasing this stably quite soon now; the MIME stuff needs a massive cleanup, and some other goals, but its almost there. Check out the demo if you are interested.

No database access abstraction, so there's no hope for trying to bolt it up to (for example) PostgreSQL instead without heavy modifications. One site (warning, Spanish ahead) mentioned that they were working on creating an abstraction layer, but it doesn't look like they've released anything yet. <RANT>This has got to be PHP's single biggest failing: lack of a project- independant transparent database API, such as Perl's DBI/DBD scheme, or Python's DB- API.</RANT>

Actually, PHP4 is starting to get a very decent DB abstraction layer in the form of PEAR, which is its form of Perl's CPAN.

If you install the PEAR that comes with the latest PHP4, look in /usr/local/lib/pear/DB.php and check it out. The current development version of IMP is using it now, and everything works rather well.
