What, exactly, is up

Hi all. Sorry things have been so dead. zt/2 has been under development for the past few months, but I have been in my final year of university and working developing software for a company. Because of this (add in making music, a girlfriend, and fun,) i have been VERY busy and have not really had time for this project. I really do not know when i will have time to work on this in the near future, as i am very burned out from the past 6 months, but I have not forgotten about this.. if anyone would like to take over active development for the time being, please let me know.

Where am i?

Ok i know ive been flakey the past few months.. lots to do (im a student you know.)

But the real reason zt hasnt really been comming along is because im putting most of my (limited) efforts into zt/2 ... all i can say is that it is going to be really really cool... much more stable, and do everything thats on all the lists and alot more. Its more along than you might expect. I will post some screenshots in the next few weeks.... read more

zt 0.90 in cvs

zt 0.90 is in cvs.. it uses SDL instead of libCON now so windowed mode is as fast as fullscreen, and fullscreen is many times faster than it was before. if all goes well, 0.90 will be released within the next month or so. this will be a big update!

ztracker status - cm vacation

Hi all. Just a little note to update you all on what's going to happen for the summer. The Summer Edition thing does not mean there will not be any more releases over the summer, but I (cmicali) will not be able to work on zt at all until september 1. I am at home now and I dont have my development box.. I also don't have my midi gear with me. Plus, in about a week, im going on vacation for a month. Zonaj, lipid, and tlr are going to take over for the summer, and hopefully they will make a few releases. Good luck, and i'll see you next fall. (also, (*advert*) please dont forget about the donations.. im trying to get money together for a sampler.. that would help me fix alot of the loop/sampler related bugs :)... read more
