Orion3D / News: Recent posts

Are we dead ? Surely not !

Yep, by reading the last news, one could ask himslef some questions about the activity of this project : many months without a single news, it seems to be not very promising...
But there is a very simple reason : we do not use the sourceforge web site for our communication (well, actually we could generalize that to "we do not make a lot of communication"). In fact we just use sourceforge for the CVS and the mailing lists. So, of you're asking "Wow ! 10 messages in a whole year ! Where is the life ?!", the answer is "Look at the mailing lists archives". Everything that is related to the developpement of Orion3D is talked about in the orion3d-dev ml. With an average of 130 messages per month, I consider this to be quite active and living ;).
For all the rest (including new releases etc.), prefer visiting the Orion3D webpage http://orion3d.sourceforge.net than waiting for weeks on sourceforge.

New mailing lists

Two new mailing lists have been added for your pleasure only : orion3d-info and orion3d-support.
Subscribe to orion3d-info to get (not) regular information about new Orion3D features and stuff like that.
The orion3d-support is not a fan mailing list, but a list for technical support : if you experience any problem with Orion3D, just do a little search in the archives of this list, and if you don't find anything, post a new mail. If you used to use orion3d-dev for getting help, plase switch to orion3d-support. You will NOT be helped less :)
So, if you're using Orion3D, and even if everything works fine and you don't have any problem, we suggest you subscribe these two lists to keep informed.
And finally, if you're asking yourself "how does it work inside ?", the orion3d-dev mailing list is still here, and still public.... read more
