MyConf is back
MyConf is MyNC's state management subsystem. It is similar to GConf of the GNOME project, but is more lightweight and is meant to meet the requirements of a soft-realtime system. MyConf includes a server which stores name/value pairs in a tree structure and keeps it synchronized with its XML representation on the disk. There is a well-defined grelay interface so that one can perform operations on the server remotely, and a C++ client library that allows to write MyConf clients in C++. The main feature is the subscription mechanism: clients can subscribe to certain options and receive notifications when those options change. I've just finished porting MyConf to GRelay. Here you can see a picture of MyConfUI.Control widget in action.

Had fun with AVL trees
Balanced trees are required for several tasks in MyNC. I've just written a graphics tool to debug them in three incarnations: for the kernel, for grelay and for mycpp. Fresh MyCpp::AvlTree code seems to work. Here's a screenshot of what is available at https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/mync/trunk/mync-gtree.
Oh, and yes, I've registered MyNC at sf.net and have already imported several modules into SVN. The rest is due soon.
