XEmacs Home Page for Jan Vroonhof

This is the XEmacs home page for Jan Vroonhof, one of the developers of XEmacs.

He can be reached at <jan.vroonhof@xemacs.org>, as well as <jan@xemacs.org>.

Jan Vroonhof has been using XEmacs since he needed to write .tex files for his work as a physics and maths student at the Univerisity of Leiden. His XEmacs hacking started when XEmacs kept freezing up under a his window manager. He submitted a fix and has been hooked every since.

XEmacs has followed him first to Switzerland where he did a maths doctorate at the ETH in Zurich, working on a conjecture by Migdal on the behavior of vertex corrections in Electron-Phonon theory. Finally sharing a house with his loved one, he now lives in Oxford (UK) working on the Jeode Java Virtual Machine, which like XEmacs is portable, implements a language, includes a non-trivial bit of graphics and a garbage collector, but is multithreaded to boot! Unfortunately his XEmacs time is directly limited by the amount of traffic on the M40.

Contributions to XEmacs:

Apart from hunting down redisplay bugs Jan has worked on such things as improvements to the package system, implementing lazy-shot, a short stint at tracking patches and currently acts as a guardian of the XEmacs custom subsystem and gnuserv.
