Site has been down for a while

SourceForge took down OB's MySQL DB, so the site has been down while I negotiate its return. Code, the wiki, the bug tracker, etc. is still A-OK, though.

OpenBlox commit milestone

The 100th commit to OpenBlox's Mercurial repositiory (http://openblox.hg.sourceforge.net/hgweb/openblox/openblox/) was committed a few minutes ago, setting the all-time commit-per-day average for OpenBlox to 0.2.

This is quite amazing, considering OpenBlox was born in November '09, and still has a relatively small team.

Site down again

Now, Sourceforge is migrating the M-Z projects (this includes OpenBlox) to the new Project Web.

The site may take a while to come back online.

OpenBlox site back up

It wasn't the SourceForge new Project Web that caused an outage, but something did.
Anyway, the OpenBlox site is back up!

Bug: Lua dependency

OpenBlox depends upon Lupa as a Lua-Python binding, and as Lupa depends upon Lua, OpenBlox depends upon Lua as well.

Still with me? Good!

This means you have to download and install Lua to use OpenBlox.
See the README at https://sourceforge.net/projects/openblox/files/Releases/README.txt/download to see how to download the Lua libraries.
