Dillo2 coming in September

Filed under
Software

Imagine my complete and utter surprise after accidentally clicking on the Dillo home page link, and seeing this:

After a very slow 2006, and a project stop in year 2007, the new 2008 came with a renewed work force that kept working steadily behind the scenes. The fruits of this effort are a new and stable dillo based on FLTK2 (aka dillo2), that has more features, bug fixes, goodies and half the memory footprint of the GTK1-based dillo!

This new branch of dillo is scheduled for release in late September or early October 2008.

Oh, I think I may be having a heart attack. Dillo2? Egads, I’ve been looking at the same Dillo version since I started using Linux. A new version might signal the apocalypse.

  • ocs-client GSoC
    So my GSoC is coming to its end. I have no cool screenshots to upload this time and I have no new great features to talk about, in fact Caludio and I manly focused on bugfixing and testing. We have spent time also discussing about possible changes and improvements to the current OCS protocol. So is the client ready do be lunched? In short I would say that no, not yet.. although most of its features are implemented and it is usable, it is still an “under construction” project, we both still have to make some important decisions to make it usable to everyone.
  • The Fiber Engine Poll, Updates, and Breeze
  • Bringing Akonadi Next up to speed
    and refactoring it again, to make sure the codebase remains as clean as possible. The result of that is that an implementation of a simple resource only takes a couple of template instantiations, apart from code that interacts with the datasource (e.g. your IMAP Server) which I obviously can’t do for the resource.
  • New linter integration plugins for KDevelop
  • Artikulate Plans for Randa
    Language learning is often considered as the task of memorizing new vocabulary and understanding the new grammar rules. Yet for most, the most challenging part is to actually get used to speak the new language. This is a problem that Artikulate approaches with a simple idea: to learn the correct pronunciation of a word or even a longer phrase, the learner listens to a native speaker recording, repeats and recordings it, and finally compares both recordings to improve herself/himself with the next try.
