Clang is a compiler front-end for C, C++, Objective-C and (now) Objective-C++. It's built on top of the Low Level Virtual Machine (LLVM), the project that aims to provide a modern compiler infrastructure, that projects (like Clang) can be built upon. Like LLVM, Clang aims to provide a modern front-end compiler for the aforementioned languages and is seen to ...

Sequel Pro 0.9.8.1 was released a few days ago. As is evident from the classic open source project version number, this was a bug fix release (our first one in fact) that addresses over 30 different issues, significantly improving the application's overall stability. It's taken us this long to realise that we should have been doing this a lot more often ...

SafariTabs 0.7.3 is now available for download. I'll keep this short as my thoughts on SafariTabs and Safari 5 as well as most of the changes were mentioned in my previous post, with the main change being added support for Safari 5 on Snow Leopard. The full list of changes in this release can be found in the version history. ...

In short, I'm working on it. For anyone interested in a little bit of history, when Snow Leopard (OS X 10.6) was released, which included further restrictions on InputManagers resulting in SIMBL having to be rewritten I was all set on discontinuing the development of SafariTabs. The reason being because its feature set was reducing with every release of ...

Remember this post in which I detailed at great length my plans for redesigning Sequel Pro's export architecture? Well, a little over 6 months since the redesign branch was created I finally merged it back into trunk yesterday. As expected the new architecture doesn't exactly match what was planned in every way, but 28 new files and countless lines of code ...

Just a quick note to say that Sequel Pro 0.9.8 is now available. As with previous releases, this one includes a whole bunch of new features and fixes. Without reposting everything that is mentioned on the announcement post, some of the major new features include user management support, 64-bit support and significantly improved auto-completion with ...

Two posts in one day, that's definitely a first for me. To be honest though I wouldn't expect it to continue. I could say that I'm going to try and post more often (like on the many occasions before), but I'm willing to bet that anyone that's every started a blog has said that at least once. Plus we'd both know that I'd effectively be lying. Anyway, after ...

So I'm a few days late in openly voicing my opinion here on the passing of the Digital Economy Bill at its second reading in Parliament on Tuesday and again at its third just yesterday, but the fact is it's now going to be the law within weeks and has the potential to effect everyone who uses the Internet within the UK. I've come to expect a less than ...

Considering that there are more URL shortening services than anyone cares to (or can) keep track off, there's not exactly the need for another, when you realise the only thing different would be the name. Despite this, I am creating a new URL shortening service, but one that is specific to the Sequel Pro project and not available for general URL shortening ...

SafariTabs 0.7.2 is now available for download. As usual this is a pretty minor release that resolves the following issues: New window links not working when the 'Force new window links to open in a new tab' option is disabled. Not saving the current session's open tabs when private browsing is enabled. The first issue was introduced in the previous ...
