This is Fernando Mejía from México, some months ago I read that
it is possible to get the source code of Archimedes for Eclipse, and
I looked for some weeks without any result.
   Is that possible? Could you help me?

Hello everyone,
I'm sorry we've been so apparently "inactive" and haven't released something
new for a long time.
We are still working however and because of this, I've asked sourceforge to
create a new mailing list for us.
It should be used by translators and the development team to comunicate
regarding translations to the new Archimedes.
If you are a translator or wish to become one, please subscribe as soon as
possible at:

I'll soon post some news regarding translation in the new archimedes and I'm
sorry to tell the translators that they'll have a lot of work again because
a lot of their translations will hardly be reusable.

Thank you very much for you patience and sorry for the spam to the

Hi, Davide!

Thanks again for helping us! =)
I'll answer Luca's email, could you please pass it on to him?
Here it goes:

First of all, sorry it has taken me so long to answer this.
Secondly, thank you for the feedback =)
Archimedes has been going through some changes, but we'll be back with new
things soon.

That does sound like an interesting way to work, but I don't see Archimedes
going in that direction for a while. I think that there's a bunch of more
basic stuff that we're missing, and that they're more important. Would you
agree? Or do you think that having all these features first, and lacking,
say, dimensions and blocks, would make Archimedes better to work with?

I guess what I'm trying to say is: I agree the software has poor project
management features, but we're working on basic features first because we
think it's more important at this stage.

second: selection filters

Well, this sounds a bit easier than the first feature. The first I'd break
into a bunch of smaller features, but this one is just one or two smaller
features. This properties used to select entities are layer properties,
right? Since for now elements can't have different properties from their
layers, this feature is basicly:
1) Make it possible to select all entities belonging to a certain layer; and
2) Search layers by their properties, so choosing what layer to select is

Is that it or did I get it wrong?

Thanks again! I'll try not to take so long next time.

Best wishes,
Mariana Bravo
