Oh... I have a blog

I guess I should admit this has become a semiannual blog. Perhaps if I made it more convenient, I might post more. Or perhaps I'm just lazy and don't like writing much.

Liven and I took a cruise to Alaska! I almost had the chance to meet David Champion in Seattle before the trip, but our schedules didn't quite match.

Also, since I've last posted, I've released mutt 1.6.0 and 1.6.1, with 1.6.2 to come out soon. I guess that's been going pretty well.

Just today, I committed the neomutt version of the sidebar patch. Yup… no kidding. I don't know if I'll end up using it much, but many people say they can't use mutt without it. It needed some cleanup, (and still needs more) but the mutt_window changes made it less invasive than it was. After the buffy fixups, it will be time to start thinking about 1.7.0.

A lot can change in 6 months. Since last post, I've pretty much fully switched over to using emacs as my editor. It's taken some adjustment, but overall I like it. It's more… relaxing to use. Yup, vim kicks some major butt when it comes to cursor and object manipulation, but I found using it all the time tiresome. I still use it for 3-way-merge (using splice) and for reviewing patches, but otherwise I'm trying to use emacs for everything. I wish I had earlier.
