With OpenKomodo coming, I think I should really put Verbosio on hold for the moment. Komodo’s capabilities bring so much to the table that I’d be a fool not to look at moving much of Verbosio’s infrastructure over to Komodo instead of XULRunner. This means learning another platform (not as much fun as you might think), seeing what API’s I can benefit from, and what I can contribute back. Making sure OpenKomodo works on trunk XULRunner will probably be one of my main goals (since Verbosio uses several trunk features).
I am really quite pleased to hear this. It’s the kind of thing I’d want to throw a party for. I’ve been a big fan of ActiveState’s Komodo work ever since I was introduced to it at OSCON 2002. I kept thinking, “I want that!” Now, ActiveState is saying, “Here you go.” You just can’t beat that.
Verbosio’s on de facto hold anyway, as I’ve (once again) bitten off more than I can chew. If I could find a couple days uninterrupted, I’d be able to finish off the next piece of UI for it…
Nine days to Mozilla 24! Too bad we only get nine hours at the Stanford hall… anyone interested in hosting and/or joining me during the other fifteen for a hackathon?
