phpDiplomacy 0.72 Released. Diplomacy is a popular board game in which
you battle to control Europe, but this isn't a game of luck; to win
you must be diplomatic and strategic, forming and breaking alliances
and bargains. phpDiplomacy takes the fight for Europe to the internet.
phpDiplomacy's development has slowed, being inactive for months now
as opposed to the constant development last year, due to work and
There's not much new in this release; phpDiplomacy went down in
January because of a recurring, elusive bug in the scheduling code.
This bug has long since been fixed with a rewrite of the scheduling
code, but not much else has changed.
Over the year lots of people have expressed interest in the project,
and signed up to the mailing list, however there's currently not
enough time to develop this project to the same degree as last year.
0.72 is mostly complete, there are no glaring ommissions; so, instead
of developing it further, effort will only go into maintaining and
debugging 0.72 for the time being.
If you are interested in developing phpDiplomacy here is what's left
to do before 1.0:
- 'History' UI improvement
- Improve forum thread ordering
- Automatic unit placement for users which don't finalize
- Images for help files
- More thorough help files
- Adjudicator improvement
- Full translation support
- Improve e-mail system
