Exciting Times!

Permalink 11:30:44, Categories: General  

These are really exciting times in the Crystal Space world.

First we migrated from CVS to SVN. SVN is a much more flexible and powerful revision control manager. This move will facilitate making branches (which we will need for 1.0 and Google Summer of Code) and it is easier to keep track of changes using SVN too. There are also a few downsides (like having a much bigger client-side checkout of CS and some operations are somewhat slower) but in general it is a big improvement. To improve on the client-side overhead we will most likely remove the generated documentation from SVN (i.e. the entire docs/html directory). The docs itself will stay though.

Secondly the Google Summer of Code deadline has passed. So we now know that we get seven applications and we almost know which students are accepted (still have to resolve collisions between other organizations). I'm really looking forward to working with the students on seven exciting projects in Crystal Space. I hope it will be a valuable experience for the students and obviously I hope that Crystal Space will also benefit from this. The SoC students will work in seperate SVN branches so that their work doesn't interphere with the normal development.

Thirdly we're looking forward to the conference now. We have some really good talks planned and I'm really looking forward to meeting you all there. I'm sure a lot of good things can come out of this conference.

Fourthly we will soon make the 1.0 branch in svn. This is really a great time and the first real concrete step towards the 1.0 release. Of course the real 1.0 will still be some time in the future as we really have to resolve a lot of bugs and problems first. But it is a good step in the right direction.

And finally things are looking nice on the CS demo side. Erroroman, Xotic, and caedes are really doing a nice job on some impressive demos. You'll soon hear more from this.

Greetings from Belgium!

I do not even know how I ended up right here, but I believed this publish was once great.
I do not recognize who you are however definitely you are going to
a well-known blogger for those who are not already.

Also, the tools they provide for your site maintenance may
not be user friendly. The setup enables the rapid
delivery of high performance, read-intensive applications.
When setting up your website for your business,
it is important that you look at the bandwidth and the disk space that the hosting company is offering.
