9 December 1999
I got my uni results yesterday. I got good marks in both my computing and pure maths majors. I got invitation for honours year letters from both the maths and computer science departments. I will have to decide where I want to do honours. Apparently I got the highest score in the computer networks unit, which means I will be getting a prize from a company called AlphaWest.
I converted the page setup widget I wrote for dia to use GnomePaper and GnomeUnit. After doing a bit more cleanup, and implementing the old GnomePaperSelector interface, I will commit it to gnome-libs HEAD branch.
Dia now has a bezier connection line. It is a mixture of work by Lars Clausen and me. It works fairly well. There is a patch for it from Lars to better handle the initial drag when placing the object, but I haven't got round to applying it. Cyrille has a few patches to start doing the properties interface. I haven't read them yet, and I think I will wait till 0.82 is out before applying them anyway.
I should really do a bit more work on gnome-python and gnorpm. I should probably spend a while bringing gnome-python back up to scratch and release a new version. As for gnorpm, I have got a bit stuck implementing the dependencies code in terms of glibwww. It is quite difficult handling the state between callbacks.
