Since I’ve blabbed this all over the peldet release thread on pspupdates I may as well post it here 🙂

I’ve been quite busy with work and University recently, so my PSP dev time has been at a minimum.

Heres my current homebrew todo list:

  1. Integrate afkim + maybe others into pspradio plugins (webnab needs a fairly big rewrite to get in so I may not bother for now, infact I will leave peldet untill its had its next big rewrite too)
  2. Split peldet+afkim into “afkim” (im client), “afkirc” (irc client), “peldet” (telnet/ssh client). These will all be pspradio plugins aswell as standalone apps.
  3. Add ssh to peldet
  4. Make all my apps better.

I have currently managed to get afkim working in pspradio, although there is still a bit of work to do before I can add it as a proper plugin.
Peldet will be getting the new danzeff keyboard in addition to the current psprint keyboard, I will make a modified danzeff to make it better for use with telnet/ssh.
AFKIRC will be based off the irc core that I rewrote for AFKIM, which was based on the IRC code I originally wrote for peldet (much improved however, hahaha). The code is now generic enough that it could be used to easily make an irc client for most any system, so I may make a libirc from it in the future if I have the time 🙂
This IRC code still needs some improvements for more generic IRC use, but it is coming along nicely and I’ve managed to hack together a AFKIRC test client from it without too many changes. Currently when it has errors it just stops working, and pm’s and a whole lot of other useful messages get parsed and thrown away, which isn’t very useful.
The current codebase shouldn’t be toooo difficult to get multiple channel support into, so expect that to happen at some stage 🙂
