Any news?

Post by the.Ant » Wed Sep 10, 2008 5:20 pm

Just wondering, is there any news on JVC? Last version I tried looked very promising, EXCEPT that the colours in the menu did not work, which made it too much of a hassle to use... so I'm back to my old build. But I really liked the new functions, so I was wondering if there are any new build around for testing...

Sadly, still can't code myself, but I'm an eager bughunter :)

Sadly, I don't think we'll see something until after Sep. I'm also moving house after some renovations, so things are a bit hectic right now.

But don't worry. The colors is my first priority as I also miss them allot!

If it isthe problem with the classloader, then i have got it (though not submitted it to SF yet).

I DO plan to make some minor fixes, like coloring in 1.6, ctrl-f9/minesweep simulation.

But first i need to fix the biggest problem: some standard way of making a new release...
This is the hurdle to get things rolling - what's the use of making a fix on SF, if it is not easy to roll it out?

So don't use SF, use your JVC site.

That is it, yes.

All those fixes would be welcome. If I was more of a Java guy and not a .Net guy I might have had a few new features in by now, but :oops:
