Journal: The Gopher is dead, long live the Gopher!

Journal by twicepending

With all the commotion this week over the launch of FireFox 3 and Wine 1.0 there were a couple of software announcements that might of passed by most of the world but which I found quite exciting...

First, to coincide with the launch of FireFox 3 the Overbite project went public with the first public release of their FireFox 3 add-on that brings "gopherspace back to modern operating systems and browsers".

And secondly, the libgopher project reached an important milestone with the announcement of the first feature complete version of their simple library that can handle Gopher pages and parse menu items and such.
