Back to school

After a quite long pause of the development, I am back on the development with some new updates. First of all, from now on, the new tracker is the Trac located on http://sourceforge.net/apps/trac/glorylandsweb-b/ and is currently the preferred support mechanism. There, you can also view the Roadmap, the Milestones and the development progress.

Also, I have started some major updates and cleanups to the engine, and because of that, I'll need some help. That's why I am scheduling a couple of on-line meetings and seminars to encourage new users to get involved with the project. This is the best chance to get familiar with the engine, since the whole structure and operation will be discussed online. Those meetings will take place on IRC (Channel #glorylands on FreeNode) and the dates will be announced on Saturday 26/09/2009.... read more
