What is futsanaj

Last release of GNU Xnee was called ‘futsanaj’. What does ‘futsanaj’ mean?

It’s the name of a song one of my daughters wanted me to play while driviing the car. She became frustrated and tried to give me hints such as “you know the song Ella likes”… after a while she said something about a Doctor. Then, it stuck me.

Such a night with Dr John

When Signe tried to say Such a night, it became futsanaj.

RECORD extension seems to be working again, GNU Xnee too

Seems as if I found a solution to a long time very serious bug (see prev. blog post) in GNU Xnee. GNU Xnee can now record (asynch) and use modifier+key to pause/resume/stop recording.

Played around with some XSync, XFlush to make sure we had a record context before firing the enable context call (XRecordEnableContextAsync) call.

Will now clean up the code, test (using swinput) some more (regression) and commit to CVS.

Dare I say we have a 3.04 release coming any day?
