It took me 10 days instead of a week but still, here I am. What have we been doing?
Mainly, we are continuing the migration. The main platform is quite stable but does absolutly nothing. Which means I am not going to release something that will be totally useless to anyone. If you guys disagree, please let me know so that I can reconsider it.
Replaning the future today, I have, once again, defined a deadline to release this new "stable" version of Archimedes: 16/04/2007.
This release will be made just the day I come back from the FISL 8.0 and should be made of something like 70% of the features from the old platform.
The main improvements that may not be available are: Texts (using Truetype fonts), JUnit 4.0 tests (regarding developers only) and MAYBE we have a very slow and inefficient intersection detection system. Our main problem is that we are generalizing it and this means we will have to implement some non linear system solver. Any help regarding that last subject is very welcome considering we have no specialist on the subject in the team.
