Well summer is finally over (boo hoo :( ), and colder temperatures are here for a while. So that means my soccer playing gets tabled a bit till the spring gets here to thaw things out a bit. Which frees up more programming time for the VCF!
obirsoy and I are currently working on the linux port. The current plan is to use a very thin layer of X calls and then use AGG for all the graphics rendering, bypassing most of the frustrations with X altogether. Instead of using XLib, we are using XCB, which seems to work quite well.
I have finally gotten motivated enough to publish some articles on Code Project! I'm also writing several other articles so keep a look out for new VCF articles. I'll post announcements of them here when they get posted. The current articles posted for the 0-9-0 release are:
We are now transitioned over to a Subversion repository. On April 15 2006 I ran the SourceForge migration script on our CVS repository and created a Subversion repository. This means that the "correct" way to access the projects source code is by using some sort of subversion client, such as the "svn" command line tool, or GUI clients like TortoiseSVN.
The new 0-9-0 release of the VCF is now uploaded! This is one of the larger, if not the largest, release we've done in some time.
I'd like to especially thank Doug Tinkham, Darko, Dmitry Kononov, Orhun Birsoy, Fraggle, and Marcello for pointing out bugs, testing, adding new compiler/toolchain support and linux porting.
