+ - No serious linux speech recognition software?

Having successfully and happily moved to Linux for more than a year now, I miss nothing but a decent speech recognition program to relieve me from typing from time to time. The lack of progress for Linux-based applications in this field is stunning. The last entry in the linux speech-reconition HOW-TO is from 2002 and this is not an indication that the field has matured :-) The rest of the hits that you get when searching the net is not much more up-to-date. I know that there are packages for speech recognition in the default repositories of Ubuntu and other distros, but given the state of Windows-based speech recognition software such as ViaVoice or Dragon Naturally Speaking, they are prehistoric. Am I overlooking something?"
GNU is Not Unix

+ - Emacs 22 released->

the Atomic Rabbit (200041) writes "After six years of development, version 22.1 of GNU Emacs has been released. Richard Stallman's release announcement can be viewed here. The complete list of changes in this major release are documented in the NEWS file, which contains more than five thousand lines; highlights include GTK+ support, enhanced mouse support, a new keyboard macro system, improved Unicode support, and new packages including a graphical user interface to GDB, Python mode, and the Tramp remote-file editing system. As usual, the Antinews section of the Emacs manual provides information on downgrading to Emacs 21 for the benefit of "those users who live backwards in time". The Emacs 22.1 source tarball can be downloaded from the GNU FTP site, or one of its mirrors. The difficulties encountered during the development of Emacs 22 have previously been discussed on Slashdot and lwn.net."
