Still alive

After a long time of stopped work, I finaly started over again.

Right now a lot a basic libraries are replaced and the old 2D/Swing stuff is working again.
Due to this library move the next release will be version 3.1 (skipping the 3.0 branch completly) . Also it allows a more flexible configuration with dedicated server and viewer components (if required, it is not enforced).

Currently I'm a little bit struggled with the Maven packaging but this should be solveable in no time though a new beta release should be near :)

Move to SVN

I decided to move from CVS to SVN after working with SVN in other projects like SMSlib (http://www.smslib.org) and reading some documentation about SVN.

SVN supports file movement and uses UTF as log message encoding.

The main code base of beamer-tool is just migrated to SVN and CVS is deprecated.
Within the next hours beamer-tool_c++ should be in SVN, too.

Ohloh.net is updated and a new mailinglist for developers is also installed.
Through this mailinglist the developers of beamer-tool can discuss about next releases and see current SVN diffs.

Now, beamer-tool has it's own project-page at http://www.beamer-tool.de and it's own SourceForge-project at http://sourceforge.net/projects/beamer-tool.

At the moment, only the old sources of beamer-tool v.1.0 are availible.

But the new version of beamer-tool, beamer-tool v2, should be released on 2006-12-02.

Betas are availible through CVS or the nighty tarball.
