Independent Status Reports
Friday December 20th, 2002
The latest set of status reports includes updates to Checky, XULmaker, wmlbrowser, the European Mozilla community, the Creating Applications with Mozilla book, XULmine and TagZilla.
Great to see tagzilla working,
And even greater to see that XULmaker has a new owner.... this will definitally be good, since it will facilitate more people to build apps and extensions for Mozilla/Phx....
cheers to everyone and their projects!
---- A blonde is walking down the street, her blouse is unbuttoned and her left breast is hanging out. A policeman stops her and says, "Miss, I could arrest your for indecent exposure, your left breast is exposed." She screams, "Oh My god, I left the baby on the bus again."
Wow. Somehow I missed this the first time it came around. Nice work in picking it back up. I was surprised how quick it was to build some simple XUL files with this. Almost enough to bring XUL down to this not-developer's level. Keep up the good work. Something like this will really help XUL uptake.
The next version of Linky is in the making. This time with some cool new features. Like the Select Links dialog.
The next version will be release soon.
What ever happened to Beonex Communicator? Their web site is still up, and I really think they were doing nice work, but I haven't seen anything from them in the last few status reports... Does anyone have info?
Looks like the wmlbrowser project should get together with the guys in bug 35995 <http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=35995> as they've got what looks to be a pretty good WML parser that uses XSLT to convert WAP pages for displaying in Moz, and seems to be a lot farther along in terms of WML supportGAThrawn. If you combined their XSLT with your 'bits that actually make it work' and combine in the WBMP support in bug 182621 we could all sleep a little easier at night!
(note that the above is all personal opinion and is almost definitely easier to talk about than do, and I take my hat off to the guys that are actually doing the work)
