Macbook Pro arrived

On friday, after a lot of anticipation, my Macbook Pro finally arrived :)
It was a reward for contributing to webkit(http://webkit.opendarwin.org/blog/?p=44).

(X)HTML+SVG

Just a short note that I have experimented with svg embedded inline in xhtml. Taking the code
from webkit+svg, I did a prototype bundling khtml2 and ksvg2 on top of kdom, and making sure
the svg elements use render objects this time. I also used just one backend, which uses the qt4 painter.
Even though I did not get to implement all features (markers, text), it clearly shows that
inlining of svg in xhtml is very possible!
Here are examples of rendering of xhtml+svg docs:

Holidays and KOffice

Well, holidays have started, and it is about time since the last months of work
were very busy. Now I am taking a small break from ksvg2 hacking to work again
on KOffice and Karbon, fixing bugs and small annoying problems. I think I'll
wait with large redesigns/ui changes until after the next release though.

SVG Open 2005

Again a long time since last blog...

This week, monday until thursday, there was SVG Open in Enchede, the Netherlands. I got
an invitation to be part of the svg implementators panel by the organising team. I took
a long time deciding to go, but had I known it would be this much fun, I would have
visited more days, not just the final day!

What KHTML2 is about

I realize now my previous blog about khtml2 lacked explanation and introduction, sorry
for this :| The idea is *not* that WildFox and myself can do better than khtml on the html front.
In fact we know more about svg than html. So the idea is *not* to add new functionality to khtml,
but keep the functionality like it is.

KHTML2 progress

I promised to report on the khtml2 progress, on behalf of WildFox, since he didn't find the time
to report himself, having to go on a well deserved holiday :)
Basically a lot of code is "ported", and Niko started on a lot of RenderObject related code.

A productive hacking day

I am not always the optimistic kind, but "today was a good day".
A lot of code was added to ksvg2 and kdom that I can feel content with.
It is never a good feeling to leave code lying there that you know is

Also blogging

Well, I decide to give blogging a go ;-)
There are so many interesting things going on right now (qt4, kdom stuff)
that this may be the best time to start. Hopefully this way we ksvg devs can also improve
