Nothing new by my side, yet, but these have been days full of news that matter (to me, at least)
I know that many of the ones who just happen to read this already know every single news that I am going to talk about but... I want to tell these anyway, like talking in a pub about something everyone knows. Is not that strange and I'll be briefly, just the fact.
In the last cople of days I have seen the release of Apache Jackrabbit 1.4 with a lot of new features . Then the new build of java 6uN with the mythological java kernel to try. Then again, the swing scenegraph now has a demo project full of interesting demo applications. Scenegraph is fantastic, I am going to write something about it in the next days. Then again, Sun is going to acquire MySQL . Well this is just "industry news" but anyway, something important.
Something else? Yahoo to adopt OpenID? The ultra-thin-beautiful and unuseful MacBook Air? Is Dirk-Willem van Gulik leaving Joost a good or a bad news for the project?
I think I have to turn down the browser and keep coding for the next days :)
Before I left you, I give you this tip I just discovered. This is to turn ugly Ubuntu Gutsy font in something that really resemble OSX fonts:
From ubuntu forums:
If you're using Gutsy, go to System > Preferences > Appearance.
Then click on the "Fonts" tab.
Then click "Details".
Under "Hinting", click "none"
Have a nice day.
