AAP RELEASE 1.0
Most of June was spend on working towards the 1.0 release. Bugs have
been fixed, inconsistencies removed and the documentation cleaned up.
The deadline was the O'Reilly conference, where the 1.0 release will be
presented. Unfortunately, not all documentation has been converted to
docbook format yet. This will be done soon.
AGIDE ON MS-WINDOWS
Not planned but done anyway: Sergey Khorev made it possible to run Agide
on MS-Windows and communicate with Vim. This requires applying a few
patches to Vim (these will be released later). A few MS-Windows
specific problems in Aap were also solved.
To stimulate developers to help making Aap and Agide grow and improve
the Zimbu award will be handed out. Everybody helping the A-A-P project
has a chance to get one of the three prizes. More info on the web site:
The presentation for the O'Reilly Open Source Convention was further
improved. A handout was made, so that more people know about the
presentation and the A-A-P BOF session. There are eleven parallel
sessions, thus conference visitors must be given a reason to chose for
the A-A-P presentation.
There has been a tryout for Snow. It was good to do this, especially to
get a feeling for the timing. A few slides have now been removed,
because they were too complicated to explain in a short time. Also,
unexpected problems with the combination of laptop and projector
appeared. Only afterwards I discovered how to fix this (restart the
presentation program while the projector is connected).
About half of June was not spend on A-A-P (trip to Uganda and meetings
got in the way). According to the plan the documentation would have
been finished and some work done on the version control wrapper.
Unfortunately, the documenation is not completely finished and no work
was done on the version control wrapper yet. This means the work lags
behind about two weeks.
First of all there is the OSCON conference and a week of holidays.
Then I expect reactions to the 1.0 release to consume time to handle.
People trying out Aap will report problems and ask questions. In the
mean time I hope to finish cleaning up the documentation.
What happens after that depends on the reactions of the 1.0 release.
And hopefully a few people will get inspired by the Zimbu award and do
part of the planned work.
