EWL is coming along nicely. I finished porting the Imlib2 wrapper from feh, and I cleaned it up and added a few new calls along the way. Basically, it eliminates the silly context-based API and converts Imlib2 loading errors to strings. :) Oh yeah, the EwlImage and EwlImLayer rendering and layout APIs are complete, along with ewl_widget_render_*(), which means that I just need to port EwlWindow to the new EwlContainer setup, and things will start to fall into place. Now would be a good time to check out the latest tarball and give me API suggestions before it's set in 1.0 stone.
I have a new layout for the page functioning -- a lot of you have
already seen it, thanks to the post by
Boris' to the e-develop
mailing list. A convenient 600% increase in my web traffic for 48
hours (wow, I didn't know I was so popular :P). It will be up
soon enough -- I just have to find a little bit of free time to finish
Work has been crazy. We're losing our admins (Netware and UNIX), and
management isn't moving particularly fast to replace them. This
means my work load is going to increase dramatically, since Alfred
and Robert are gone until September. Ouch.
The Crumbly Goodness server (at quake.pablotron.org is down)
again, and it could be quite some time before it's back up. The box
is at Alfred's house, and he's in Hong Kong. Fortunately he's using
so none of us can administer it remotely, or kill the server
and restart it when it goes nuts. Apparently people have been ICQing
him, letting him know it's down, and he contacts his roommate, who
then restarts the Q3A server, but that's just silly. Real Operating
Systems provide full access to the system via a command line -- it's
the only way to cater to virtually every operating system in existence.
Looks like Redmond loses 10
points; Berkley and
Helsinki each gain 1000.
I'm about done, but I should mention
this cool web page (brought
to you courtesy of Siobahn from #e). Also, be the first kid on your
block to get an idiotic email address: details are
here (thanks to
Filgy and RADKade1).
