What is GGI?

GGI stands for "General Graphics Interface", and it is a project that aims to develop a reliable, stable and fast graphics system that works everywhere. We want to allow any program using GGI to run on any platform requiring at most a recompile.

It all started out with some people being annoyed by the fact that graphics in Linux means either X or svgalib, and if you use both at the same time, you can easily crash the graphics card and make the system unusable. Nowadays, GGI development also involves a portable userspace library, 3D graphics, and anything else that is fun to hack :-)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
