First post!

Whee, this is my first blog post ever.. Created the account a couple of weeks ago after UDS, but didn’t have the guts to sit down and write anything before this wet, cold Sunday.

Hardy alpha1 is coming next week, and the Ubuntu X-SWAT team has been busy updating all the packages and syncing with Debian where possible. Before alpha1 releases we’ll have the new xcb-1.1 which has a sloppy-lock mode “fixing” assertion crashes with buggy apps like java. Also a newer radeonhd has just hit debian-unstable, so we’ll sync that as well.

After the first alpha we will be focusing on the HardyHardwareDetection spec. Perhaps the first step will be to enable input-hotplug after there is code to generate a hal fdi-file for the keyboard layout in use. There are definately some rough corners with input-hotplug, but my tests have so far been positive. Looking forward to the time when in 99.9% of the use cases xorg.conf is not needed at all 🙂

    Glad to see another Finn on the Planet… Hope to hear a lot from you!
    I am living in Finland and have been organizing a seminar. is what I printed for the event.
    Hope you can make it. 😀 If you don’t want to pay the fee (2€) to come… you can still come. But the money goes to help pay for burning ubuntu cd’s and paying for some VERY small prizes.
    Hope you can come!
    Feel ree to add me to your gtalk/jaber account. I think it is built into my reply.
