Well, I'm back. I didn't mean to go silent for so long, but I've been busy. Although it will be a few months before it comes out, Jan Goyvaerts and I have mostly finished work on our new regex book — stay tuned for more info. During this blogging hiatus I've also attended multiple family reunions, switched jobs, learned a new language (ActionScript 3), put in crazy hours on a new website launch, and about five weeks ago I moved to sunny Baghdad, Iraq for webdev work.
Anyway, now that work is calming down just enough for some breathing room, I should be able to get back to this blogging thing a little more regularly.
Teaser: Relatively soon I hope to release a new version of XRegExp, which will provide a way to easily extend XRegExp with your own, new regex features.
