OK, here is my update. Although the SVN repository hasn't seen any 3D
box related change form my part for a while, this doesn't mean that
development is stagnating. On the contrary, I'm currently overhauling
the tool quite significantly under the hood. In the end, the regular
user will be oblivious of most of these changes, but they are necessary
to eliminate a couple of remaining bad bugs (not bed bugs :)) and to
make the tool overall more stable, robust and extensible. The good news
is that they will hopefully be generic enough to bring a lot more within
reach than "only" 3D boxes.
Unfortunately, due to my final examinations my time is severely limited
in the next couple of months. Still, I'm confident that December (which
Bulia mentioned as a tentative closing deadline) is more than realistic
to complete these changes. I'm hoping to do it much earlier but have
learned to be careful in making predictions.
After this, I'd like to further improve usability by making perspective
lines draggable, populating the toolbar a bit more, etc. This may well
make it into the next release, too (and should, IMO).
A long-term goal (after all, there must be anything left to do after
v0.46 :) ) is the support for more general 3D related functionality.
Many proposals have been made on this list over time, and we'll have to
see what is realizable. In any case, the current refactoring is supposed
to provide the foundation for this, too.
