@ndw Any chance to get Calabash issue 79 fixed in the next few days? That is a major issue for the integration in oXygen 11.—@georgebina
@georgebina Yes. Given that you provided a patch :-), I'll try to get a release out with that fix *before* I rip it to bits for Saxon 9.2—@ndw
@georgebina I'll try. Not before the weekend, but I'll try. Are you using Saxon 9.2 now?—@ndw
@ndw Yes, but we load Calabash with a different classloader to be able to have Saxon 9.1 without conflicting with Saxon 9.2 from oXygen.—@georgebina

Vacation hacking: sqltoxml, turning SQLite3 databases into...something useful :-)—@ndw
@ndw But xml to sql is more complicated—@MafiaDeadMan
@MafiaDeadMan Yeah, but I've never wanted to do that. :-)—@ndw

Mac Snow Leopard symlinks Java 1.5 to Java 1.6. A**holes. Sorry I missed that.—@ndw

Bah. Got Java 1.5 back, but something about my IntelliJ config is borked. No compiles tonight.—@ndw

Likely I'll have to abort using a fancy word processor and go back to Emacs editing Perl POD again. Ironic for a Smalltalk article. :)—@merlyn
Editing with #emacs is never ironic, @merlyn—@ndw

Saturday at 11:34pm

Almost all tests pass. With luck, new #xmlcalabash release tomorrow. Likely last before #saxon 9.2 (he) required.—@ndw

Sunday at 10:17am

Me: that change couldn't possibly have caused a bug. Test suite: wanna bet? Test suite FTW!—@ndw

Sunday at 04:03pm

♺@xmlcalabash XML Calabash 0.9.15 released.—@ndw
