#how about a quick bio and what he's working on?
If anybody needs a bio/details of what Raph is and has been up to
here is some info taken from Raph's website (http://www.levien.com )
Up until summer 1996, I was working on static memory management.
My areas of expertise include:
Patents and intellectual property
Free software, especially Linux and Gnome
Graphics, with an emphasis on graphic arts
Security, with an emphasis on Internet public key distribution
I'm currently involved in a number of free software projects, including:
libart, a library of graphics primitives
Libart is a library for high-performance 2D graphics. It is currently
being used as the antialiased rendering engine for the Gnome Canvas. It is
also the rendering engine for Gill, the Gnome Illustration app.
Gnome (and my Gnome page)
Gimp (and my Gimp page)
Gtk+ (I'm responsible for the GdkRgb module)
Gfonted, a type1 font editor
Gill, an SVG vector illustration app
Gzilla, a web browser currently not being actively developed
I'm coordinating support for the Wacom Intuos graphics tablets within
XFree86, Linux in general, and Gimp specifically.
I also maintain the webpage for running Linux on the IBM ThinkPad 600.
I am the primary author of premail, an email encryption client. I am,
however, no longer actively maintaining it.

interactive Linux applications.
