Caruru, research and forró

“Caruru is delicious” (2.11.0) is the first development release of zenity. It brings a bunch of improvements, cleanups, bug fixes, new and updated translations and features. Most of the improvements has been made on List dialog:

  • New –print-column option syntax: now you can define a comma-separated list of column indexes;
  • New –hide-column
  • Single and multiple selection
  • Double-clicking on rows


Mastering classes has been quite cool with readings about ciberculture, technique phylosophy and virtual reality. I’ve been populating my research wiki with more and more content. I’ll be writing with the great Vicente Aguiar (!) an article about gift culture, hacker culture and free software development communities.

“Forró” on june parties

Here in Brazil, mainly in the northeast region, on 24th june, there’s a very popular party devoted to Saint John. We dance “forró” and eat a lot of baked corn and peanuts and fruit liqueur. I and Carol went to a friend’s house at a district of Feira de Santana (a town near Salvador, the Bahia state capital where we live). Here are some photos:

Lots of delicious cakes
