Is it really vacation season? There's space to mention only a frac-
tion of the thoughtful announcements and analyses that appeared in
the last week:

Donal K. Fellows offers 75 lines of code to dump the
contents of a canvas
http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~fellowsd/tcl/dumpcanv.tcl

Paul Duffin explains how to code a C interface to Tcl's
bytecode compiler to improve performance
http://x1.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?AN=372390483

Bryan Oakley refines his "widget-morphing" to disable
selected entry functions
http://x9.dejanews.com/getdoc.xp?AN=373883803
and releases his pure-Tcl combobox
http://www1.clearlight.com/~oakley/tcl/combobox/index.html

Multiple posts during the week express satisfaction
with various offerings of Jay Sekora's JSTOOLS package
http://www.aq.org/~js/js-jstools.html

Andreas Kupries releases 1.2 of Trf and TrfCrypt, which
fold compression, error-correction, encryption, ... into
I/O in intelligent ways

Martin Schrape <MSch...@atomika.com> has ported 8.0p1 to
VxWorks, and plans to do the same for 8.1 (including
threads!) this summer.

Jeffrey Hobbs' FAQ on Tk usage has moved to
http://oprs.mchh.siemens.de/tcl/faqs/tk/

The Beta 5 release of TclPro includes its Wrapper, Checker,
and Compiler
http://www.scriptics.com/beta

MathWizards, Inc. releases a beta of MathXplorer/T.

I have to say how much I appreciate this weekly posting.

Back in the old days when Java first started, there was a project called
Digital Espresso which attempted to summarize into a 'newsletter' form
what was going on in the newsgroups. The folk working on that project
eventually gave up on providing updates and I sorely miss it.

Tcl isn't as voluminous a community as Java was (and is) but it is
starting to pick up a bit. Having a way to summarize the salient points
from the past week is, to me, a valuable contribution to the community
and I want to thank those of you involved with it's production,
as well as those providing FAQ maintenance and other similar functions
to the community for all that you have done over the years - but particularly
over the past year.

Each of your efforts are appreciated.

Tclers persist in articulating wonderfully informative analyses:

Mark Harrison explains the "8.0.3" about which insiders have
been talking. He closes with the momentous news that "John O.
has suggested putting the Tcl core on an anonymous CVS server."

Alexandre Ferrieux releases a marvelous tutorial on "Concepts
of Architectural Design for Tcl Applications"

Discussions on bug reports, the Tcl development process,
and allied topics breaks out in a number of threads,
including

text=yes&q=%2B%228.0.3%22+%2B%22comp.lang.tcl%22&search=Search

Programming of fileevents again proves a fertile source of
discussion and education

driven" thread with a definitive code offering

Administrative notes: thanks to Jeffrey Hobbs and Larry Virden for their
support of this project. Also, I'm looking to hand the reins over to a
new reporter, so I can move on to other projects.

Hmmm....

Sorry, the URL for the architecture guide is supposed to be:

ftp://ftp.neosoft.com/pub/tcl/sorted/info/doc/tclarch.txt

I am responsible for spreading the wrong one with 'sorted/text' :)
