Recent requests/Q and A

People have used the comment or new post feature of my blog recently to leave some useful comments. Rather than have them as top level posts though, I'll drop them as replies to this post. In summary though:
  • I had a complaint/bug report from Steve (no surname) about the dates in my RSS feed (which should now be fixed), about double escaping of entities (which is also hopefully fixes). Steve also made a comment saying that he wished he didn't have to enter HTML manually. This strikes me as odd, because I'm typing this using Dojo's editor widget, so I guess that failed disgracefully on his machine. I've seen that on a few machines, but Dojo's generally got the most browser friendly wysiwyg editor, so I'm not sure what's up there.
  • I had a request whether Kamaelia's latest release is available for windows as a special bundle. The answer to that really is "it's python, so it should work, but we tend to develop under linux & Mac OS X so you may find some niggles". I certainly haven't created an installer for windows. All that said, we are overdue doing a new release, and /trunk is far and away recommended. Even so, that needs updating as well with recent developments... :-)
  • Finally, another anonymous poster made the following comment:
