Let the blogging begin...

Having encouraged Peter Brett to blog more frequently about gEDA, it dawned on me that I should also write about what I'm doing with gEDA development.

I have lots of things "cooking", most of which can be found in various branches of my gEDA GIT repository, which I push out to

Some things nearing completion:
  • Drawing fixes for slow rendering with composited desktops
  • Refactoring of data-structures to remove the ATTRIB struct
  • Refactoring and cleanup of "placing" code in gschem

Some longer term projects:
  • Desktop integration, including MIME type registration and icons (Based on work by Tomaz Solc)
  • Cairo rendering for gschem
  • Continued refactoring of libgeda and gschem to use more GList based APIs
I'm really looking forward to seeing some of the exciting changes which have happened recently in gEDA starting to hit main-stream distribution and usage.

In the mean time, I've a couple of bugs to fix in the development branch... it seems that even the most careful refactoring can introduce bugs or uncover problems.
