Software highlights of the day

Now VMWare Workstation 5 for Linux is being packaged (and will be released soon, if I'm not mistaken) Christian "ChipX86" Hammond (who's working for the VMWare Corporation, must be an interesting job) released some screenshots.
As I blogged before this release is based on GTK+2, so it integrates nicely into your Gnome desktop (although the software seems not to be 100% HIG compliant?).

On the "free" side of FOSS desktop applications, Evince seems to make great progress. Now the "all-in-one-viewer" proposition has been shot on desktop-devel-list@gnome, all work seems to get into document viewing (duh, nothing else to do ;-)).

This is what's possible in evince-cvs for now:

I guess I should get Evince on my system, maybe not -cvs but at least some released version. This should need 2 ebuilds: one for Poppler, and one for Evince. Maybe they're in b.g.o already, who knows?

Oh, and I forgot: Hi to Planet Gnome-NL! I'll create a hackergotchi ASAP, but taking a decent picture of me is a hell of a job ;-)
