I'm considering using NaturalDocs for our code at my work. And there are a few
changes that I would like to make to the project to make it a bit cleaner.
(Namely the html generation)
But I don't see a commit to this repository for the past year. Is it still
active? It's not in any project's best interest to split development, so if
this is still the spot to push code changes, great. I just would like to know
before I fork it to bit-bucket to make my changes public in the case that
development has stalled here at sourceforge.
The Perl codebase isn't in active development anymore, though there will
probably be another minor release in the future, mostly for bugfixes. If you'd
like your changes to be part of that please post them here. If you'd like to
fork the project here or somewhere else you're free to do so, but please
choose a different name to avoid confusion.
The C# codebase (Natural Docs 2.x) is in active development but hasn't been
publicly released yet. When it is it will most likely be on github.
I'm not quite zealous enough to fork a project, that the maintainer is still
developing, just for the sake of fixing some improperly formatted html.
I'm going to assume that your actively testing this with Mono? The ability to
generate docs from *nix is kinda crucial.
Thanks for the very prompt reply.
Yes. It's designed to be cross platform so it only uses features that are
supported in both places and handles things like the different path formats
Looking forward to watch you've done with the project. Well, aside from using
git, I'm more of a hg guy myself. :P
any news on NaturalDocs 2.0?
The engine and CLI version are just about done, just have Javadoc and search left. However, I have something new I want to build on top of the engine too.
I have to say, looking at the old-style generated documentation is kind of painful for me now :)
Could we get an update on this? Loving NaturalDocs, but your last comment "looking at the old-style generated documentation is kind of painful for me now" is intriguing to say the least!
I think its time to go back to the original question again. Is development on this project still active?
Yes. CLI version is done. Right now I'm on the "building something new on top of it" phase. I'd prefer to have them released together but I could potentially change my mind on that in the future.
that is awesome news! I'd love to get my hands on the new CLI version that you have finished. So here's my official vote that you release them separately :)
