MacHg Status

Hey all,

I just wanted to say that several people have been emailing me about MacHg and progress. As many of you have seen the public amount of work I have done on it has dropped off in the last number of months.

Well the explanation is simple my normal paying job right now is ramped up and so all my normal time (as always), is spent on that and in addition all the spare time that I can reasonably muster is also spent on that at the moment. Its really exciting stuff. In any case when that calms down in the near future I will be adding some features and polishing others in MacHg that I have long planned to do.

Top of the list is the “jiggling” of the graph as one scrolls… I actually have something working  internally but there are kinks to iron out. I rewrote things completely in MacHg only to find out that some child accessing is O(n^2). This was a real pain and I tried to get the Mercurial guys to have nice ways around this for GUI writers like me, but no dice. Thus I have had to work around this in a messy and un-ideal way. Still it working in my internal prototype builds.

Anyway more soon! I promise 🙂

Cheers,   Jas

    Hi Jason,

    nice to see that you are still around!

    I figured you must be swamped with your real work. 🙂

    So am I.

    Anyway, good to see that you still exist. Have a nice weekend, Marko
