Patchwork, the web-based patch-tracking system has just reached version 0.5. This release adds a few new features, mostly requested from non-maskable sources. Some noteable items from the changelog:
Last week, Ben and I collected a bunch of open source projects:
- kboot, the kexec-based bootloader
- twin, the tiny windowing system
- a bunch of artwork from the KDE project
- The 'busybox' mutliple-call binary
linux.conf.au 2007 hackfest notes
With the help of the folks here from OzLabs, I coordinated the linux.conf.au hackfest. I thought it'd be neat to post a few notes on the questions, as well as some approaches that we liked.
After unprecedented (unprecedented I tell you!) interest from the initial post about the register-decoding utility bitfield, there is now another release available.
I haven't been updating the 'blog much lately, mainly due to a bunch of recent Linux-on-Cell work.
bitfield - utility for decoding register values
Over the past few months, I've been using bitfield - a script to decode the fields within a register. It does neat stuff like this:
[jk@pokey ~]$ bitfield IOC_PTE 0xb80000000140031c decoding as Cell IOMMU Page table entry 0xb80000000140031c  Page protection: 0x2 [write] Coherence required: 0x1 Storage ordering: 0x3 [reads & writes] RPN: 0x1400 IOID: 0x31c
put your coding pants on...
... because the linux.conf.au 2006 hackfest is coming up soon.
kopete meanwhile changes committed
I've recently been working on a few changes to the Kopete Meanwhile Protocol Plugin, which allows you to use Kopete, the KDE instant messenger client, to connect to Lotus Sametime servers. The update has now been committed to the development branch of Kopete, and should find its way into to the main KDE 3.5 tree soon.
