Galago Status Update

It’s been awhile since I posted anything regarding Galago, so I’m about due for a status update.

SourceForge handed over the galago project to me, so I’ll be getting a site up in the next couple of days, as well as listservs.

Much of the daemon and libgalago library have been fleshed out. I still have some of the querying and signal stuff to do, and automatic merging of people, but it’s getting there fast.

I recently added a couple of new widgets to libgalago-gtk. One displays a list of services that Galago currently knows about, and the other displays a list of accounts that Galago knows about. An account list can be linked to the service list with one API call, and the account list will automatically be updated when the service is changed.

I’m in the process of writing the signal/property watch code now. When that’s done, programs will receive new presences and such as soon as they’re known, instead of querying. I haven’t had this functionality since before the rewrite, so it should be neat to see. As soon as that’s done, work on Evolution integration begins.
