One thing I forgot to add ... Even though umlwin32 has its own project
page at sourceforge, most of what we are doing right now is still relevant to
UML in general. So we will continue to use uml-devel mailing list as the
primary discussion group for a while.
Jeff, The next big thing is the task you had outlined a while ago for
sucking out the platform specific code into platform specific files and
creating a platform-independent layer. Are you planning on this anytime
soon? I can help you out with this. Probably the next patch for umlwin32
should be againt the latest uml patch. I noticed that kernel text and data
has moved into the physical memory region. Is there anything else major
that I should be aware of?
