Independent Project Status Reports
Jabberzilla - Eric Murphy
Things are still moving along. Sorry about the lack of a recent release, but I have some good excuses, which I don't want to list off.
Lately my focus has been on the JabberXPCOM, and related. It would be nice to get this stuff into Mozilla 1.0 or something, if I can prove its worth.
Hang in there!
Beonex - Ben Bucksch
Bookie - Will Sargent
mozCalc - Martin Kutschker
mozCalc is now in version 0.3.1 and has got a "scientific mode" which brings most of the common "advanced" calculator" functions (trigonometry, etc). Brackets and input in exponential notation are still missing, but the calculator should be fairly usable by now.
Documentation of the internals is under construction. So jumping in should be fairly easy ;-)
Chameleon - Pete Collins
Chameleon, checked fix into mozilla for this bug:
Thanks to jst for all the help.
Chameleon, after it is ported to the mozilla tip can use the styleSheets object to dynamically obtain style info from a xul template. This will involve some changes to the css engine and will allow me to remove any hardcoded style info from js. Thus allowing the app to scale better
across multiple components.
mozmp - Tom Vaughan
This release requires mozilla 0.8.1, and has been tested on GNU/Linux and FreeBSD. Any reports that this release does or does not work on other platforms should be sent to the mozmp mailing list at:
This release is mozmp version nsisound-0.0.1.
FOR DEVELOPERS ONLY: This release is located on the NSISOUND branch. To checkout this release, simply:
cd mozmp/source cvs up -d -P -r NSISOUND cd ../www cvs up -d -PThe current mozmp development focus is still on XPCOM sound libraries, not on nsISound.
Also, it has been found that some .wav's work, and others don't. This is something to do with the sample rate at which the .wav was created. This limitation will hopefully be resolved in a future mozilla release.
XULMaker - Michael Hearn
XULMaker is a XUL IDE project.
Well there hasn't been much news recently 'cos I've been very busy, but i have been thinking about it's design and decided that really it needs rewriting from the ground up. Unfortunately that's going to take ages with the amount of time I can give it :( This project won't be finished for a while I'm afraid. Anyway, I've posted prelimary design docs on the website. I'm reinitialising my machine soon so that'll put me behind too. Also I'm at the mercy of the perverse UK education system ... sorry :(
