Novell Ximian Services
On day 3 of the Novell-Ximian experience, things in perspective are much
better than expected on the first day. First of all, as Nat
in this mail, he and Miguel are pretty much in charge
of all the Linux desktop and Open Source strategy at Novell, which means, as
you can imagine, just only good things, given the vision and skills of both of them.
Also, all client-side development made by Novell Ximian Services will be made,
since the beginning, in the public. This is to avoid situations like the printing
support in XD2, which couldn’t be integrated into the GNOME core, since it wasn’t
known outside Ximian.
On other things, libgda
& libgnomedb 0.91 have been released.
