What's going on?

Almost two months without a post?

Well, actually, I meant to post a few notes about how the Gtk+ 2.0 to 3.0 migration went for the DeforaOS project, but ended up forgetting about it. On the other hand, I've been busy debugging and polishing the user interface, and hope to release and package these changes soon.

Speaking of which, I haven't given up on releasing hackable:1 dse2, the smartphone environment based on DeforaOS for the GSM stack and user interface. It's just been a pain to iron out the different issues encountered, with a new one appearing every time I managed to fix something. Regardless, it's looking promising, and I've been able to give and receive phone calls again.

On the security front, the asm project (and its disassembler) is now waiting to be integrated into UWfirmforce, which would also benefit from an updated user interface (and reporting facility even). It'll take a few more coding nights though.

This is also because according to the DeforaOS roadmap, I am focusing on a (re-)implementation of its main functionality: the distributed computing framework. Getting the design right is a challenge in itself already, but I am fairly confident to be able to commit the first working lines of code within a few more weeks.

Looking forward to all of these :)
