Alright, this is the python release. Now with much improved python support,
along with fixing some other scripting issues. I'll post some example python
Nov 09, 2004
Alright, 1 day, two releases. this one is mainly a polish release. not a lot
of new features. maybe it will be released as 0.4 in a few days if nobody
has any issues with it.
Nov 08, 2004
Another pre-release. This should be by far the best warlock yet. We're coming
up on 0.4. Most of the big features are done. Just need a little polish for
0.4. New in this release is a better sge thing, \S in macros to save the
contents of the entry, \R to restore the saved contents, and a bunch of
bug fixes. Oh, almost forgot. Warlock doesn't abort on unrecognized codes now
and the connect/disconnect menu items work. and there's a .desktop file
Oct 26, 2004
So what's new? some bugfixes, as always. probably more in this release than
in most. the highlights dialog got lots of attention. You can have 8 extra
colors per highlight now. I'm probably going to drop that to 4 for the
release. If anyone is against that, please send me an email
. Also some more codes
for GS are support. If you get crashes, please notify me. I'm going to be
changing the behavior on getting an unknown code for 0.4. I'll popup a dialog
asking you to notify me. Also scripting should be more compatible now. If you
are having specific problems with it, please let me know. The profile dialog
is going to be rewritten for 0.4. Don't bother reporting any bugs with that.
I know some exist. It's a terrible bit of code. the connect/disconnect menu
items don't work yet, I know. if you have any requests, please look at the
first, but don't hesitate to let me know if something should be on
there that isn't. Oh, last thing, I changed to having a development and stable
release packages on SF. If anyone knows how to get releases from one package
into a different one, please let me know.

0.4-pre3 is available for public consumption. It should now be usable by
all you Gemstone players. I guess no one from Gemstone was using it before.
The new features in this release are macros and fixes to if_ and shift in
Oct 10, 2004
I haven't done much in the way of features lately, but the preferences code
is changed again. Should fix the problem that was reported under Fedora Core
2. If not, I guess I'll have to look into it deeper. I added CVS info to this
website. Check out the link in the menu at the top. Feel free to test CVS
and report bugs you find in it. It should typically run and compile, but don't
expect it to be as polished as the actual releases.
Oct 4, 2004
So 0.4-pre1 is out. enjoy. Druid is gone again and the functionality has
been merged into warlock. DR changed how they handle disconnect, so that
required some bug fixing. also the default highlights have no color currently
so... watch out for that.
progress towards 0.4
Sept 18, 2004
SGE functionality has been integrated into warlock, so no more ugly druid.
5 points to whoever can tell me why 0.3-rc2 was so much bigger than 0.3-rc1.
because the version I have now is about the same size as rc2 and it no longer
has druid. We're progressing pretty steadily with the TODO list. If anyone
has a feature they'd really like to see in 0.4 that isn't on the todo list,
please send me an email. I'll be on vacation for about a week, but progress
will continue when I get back.
it's the time none of you thought would ever arrive
Sept 11, 2004
The release of 0.3!
so go out and grab it. what's new since 0.3-rc3. lots... highlights work
for one. no more libxml2 dependency. new dependency on pcre. highlights
should be much more fun now as they're perl based rather than posix.
oh, there were some build issues with rc3 that are resolved. things are just
all around more polished now. okay, time to break things in preparation of
Sept 3, 2004
After quite a bit of work in bringing Druid up to date with changes in
simu_connection, it's working again. I guess we were in the past
stripping out newlines in there, but not anymore.
Also rc1 had a major installation problem that I hadn't noticed. rc2 is
a bit better tested. Please be gentle with druid. It's not very robust
because I'm going to integrate it into warlock for 0.4, but it's better
Oh, btw Warlock 0.3-rc2 is on the downloads page, go check it out.
PS. I forgot to change the path for warlock back to something sane. Anyway,
warlock needs to be in your path when you run druid. rc2 was looking in my
home directory, please try rc3, which I just uploaded to correct this.
I'd say sorry, but no one has downloaded it. :)
Sept 1, 2004
It occurs to me that this is no current version of Druid available.
Marshall was going to release Druid 1.0 to coincide with Warlock 0.3.
Perhaps I should make getting Druid functionality into Warlock a higher
priority and try to get that in for 0.3. For now I'm going to release
0.3-rc2 in a short while with the old version of Druid ready to be built
and installed. Also I started saving whether you have the arrival window,
etc. open. And I'll save the window size too. I think 0.3-rc2 should be
ready to be released as 0.3, but I would really appreciate some feedback.
getting ready for 0.3
Sept 1, 2004
Okay, so I have together something that I think is releasable. I'm testing
it out right now. If everything goes as planned, I'll put it up here as
0.3-rc1, then people (or maybe no one), can test it out, and if all goes
smoothly, it can be released as 0.3. After that, I'll start working towards
0.4. Yes, I know my plans are much less grandiose than Marshall's, but I'd
like to get something usable out there now (actually, I wanted to by last
christmas, but quiting DR hindered that).
That worked out sub-par, but I fixed the distribution and am trying it
again. Okay, it worked. Scripts still don't stop when they should. I think
I've just fixed that. Let's try this again. Okay, it's fixed.
I've uploaded Warlock 0.3-r1 the "Bite the Bullet" release, because I'm
listening to Motorhead right now. Click on the download link above. I
suppose since the documentation is limited I need to say some things.
You'll need gtk+ 2.4 which you can find at gtk.org
need libxml2 (if you find an old version that doesn't work, let me know
and I'll see what versions do) which you can find at xmlsoft.org
, libgc which you can find at
gconf which should be included with gnome, or you can get the source
As always, you should check your distribution for development versions of
this software before installing from source.

Lots of work done today. As you may notice the website is looking slightly
sharper. if you find any broken links, let me know and I'll fix them.
I finished up porting to gconf. There's a few more minor things I need to
do (the dialog doesn't change if gconf settings change externally), but
it's a hell of a lot nicer than what we had before. Names need to wait
until I redo the highlights. I might do a thorough job on that and push
some stuff from 0.4 back. I want to get 0.3 out either tonight or tomorrow
depending on whether SF comes back up or not. Then 0.4 out in 2
Long time, no see
Aug 30, 2004
Hi everybody, Sean here.
I've hijacked your beloved website. Anyway, moved everything to divs.
Maybe Marshall had something to build this, but this div thing is easier
for me to modify. (Die tables! Die!)
Anyway, the news you've been waiting for, Warlock is back in action.
Over the past couple of days I moved it over to libglade and fixed a
bug in the scripting code. I'm moving the preferences to gconf and
once that's done, and I implement this name bit (names for highlights
in addition to normal highlights), so we can filter out arrival lines
that don't have names, I think I'll release what I have as 0.3.
I don't think Marshall has his CVS repository up anymore. I'll commit
what I have to the SF CVS in a few days. The code could be a bit better
commented, I'm sorry about that. If anyone is interested in that, let me
know and I'll go through and comment stuff better (ignore the highlight
code, it's a mess right now and I'm going to change it a lot for
0.4 or whatever comes next).
Some new tidbits
nov 24 2003
Apologies for the 2 weeks without a single blip. Sean
and I have been working hard on getting Warlock 0.3 and
Druid 1.0 ready for your consumption :).
First of all, I would like to officially welcome three
new members to our project. These names are in no
- Mark: Win32 Interface Druid 1.0/Warlock 1.0
- Nick: Curses Interface Druid 1.0/Warlock 1.0
- Liz: All of our graphics, icons, etc.
Check out the Contact page for their contact info.
Currently our CVS version of Druid is running
under both Gtk2.0 and KDE very well. Warlock 0.3 has
also incorporated some very nice new features including
regex string highlighting, and an XML configuration
For those daring enough, CVS is in high gear with lots
of pseudo working code ;).

nov 3 2003
After many delays, Warlock 1.0 and Druid 1.0 are finally in active
development. We have a CVS server setup here where we are constantly
checking in new changes.
