Lots of cool stuff going on in Planet land at the moment.
- Mary Gardiner sat down with Rob Collins to add some much needed unit testing love to Planet, and is looking into a bit of sanity-inducing refactoring and optimisation as well.
- Sam Ruby has massively improved Planet’s Atom support, to the point that it is no longer a faltering wreck! I’ve merged all of his changes into the trunk. I’m seriously considering merging these into the 1.0 branch for its terribly belated release. He’s also done some cool template hacking for his own Planet Intertwingly. Thanks Sam!
- Phil Wilson is hacking on an XMPP-enabled desktop aggregator based on Planet and other cool Python bits. I’ve often desired the time to hack up a desktop aggregator based on Planet, Twisted and PyGTK+… Perhaps Phil’s work could be adapted to multiple GUI frontends and integrated into the main tree?
Rock on, Planeteers!
