Gnome Jounrnal Update #7

Natan Yellin and I have been organizing a lot in the code. Natan stumbled up on SpiffGtkWidgets and managed to integrate it into the code. Although the display is amazing its pretty slow. Thus Natan and I decided to hack on it and upload our patches :). A couple of new features will be added and/or are under development, most importantly: Search! We need to be able to search Bookmarking! I took out the bookmarking code to re-implement it at some point. Tags! Tagging items would be really a cool…

Gnome Journal Update #6

I managed to get Firefox history at last. After some issues with SQLite locks, copying the places.sqlite and work on it was the solution.

The Firefox Dataprovider is in the code, however will not be displayed, since…

They will be built back in soon. I just noticed gnomejournal.org, thus I think the project needs a new name/codename... I think Gnome Timeline or "Gnome Zeitgeist"(GZG). I could use some help with a Firefox plugin.. if some1 can send me a sample code of howto read in the…

Some new updates from the Gnome Journal Prototype

After a long day of studying, watchign series, hacking and lindy hoping, I thought it would be appropriate to tell the world (whoever is interested) about the new updates on the Gnome Journal Prototype. I managed to get some academic and managment bacjup from my former boss and still current mentor Thorsten Prante. To do some advertising here a quick summary. Thorsten Prante is a computer scientist and has worked in research at Fraunhofer, as scientific staff and deputy division manager, where he also lead software development efforts and co-directed…
