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.

Here's some more details on this in-kernel virtual machine. Alexei Starovoitov presented at last month's Linux Foundation Collaboration Summit in Santa Rosa about BPF as an in-kernel virtual machine. The slides have been published for those wishing to learn more about its state and capabilities. Read more
