gcc in C++?

Ian Lance Taylor has posted his gcc summit slides, one set about gold, the new ELF linker for gcc that he wrote in C++, and the other one about writing gcc in C++. Very interesting and short.

New packages

Lately I packaged the following in the openSUSE build service:

  • Nemiver 0.5.3. The debugger for GNOME. Just an update over 0.5.2 (that is in openSUSE 11). openSUSE 10.3 and 11
  • Twitux 0.62. A twitter client for GNOME. Took the package for 0.60 from Packman and updated it. openSUSE 11 only as it requires gio.
  • Google Gadgets 0.9.2. The version of Google Gadget for the Free Desktops, released as Free Software under Apache v2 (the right way unlike some other Google stuff). openSUSE 10.3 and 11 with both KDE and GNOME support.
