Giving the small amount of free time (to make free software) I only manage to maintain one program. So those of you waiting for updates on SleezeBall, Practical PPP and rmRemote may not get any for a time. I’m currently working on making GFXIndex independent of stuff that depends on X (imlib, gdk that is). I tried to use gdk-pixbuf but that wanted an X display too so I made the decision to make my own library for graphics rendering. So far I’ve implemented JPEG loading and saving, some basic preparation for plug-ins and some basic drawing. All is made in 24-bit off screen in memory. I couldn’t figure out how to use the scaling functions from gdk-pixbuf so I’ve made a quick “nearest pixel” rescaler and put one of my friends to make a good rescaling routine.
