I believe the irrlicht we use is based on irrlicht 1.8, which is
the latest stable release, so I see no use in updating now.
And yes our version is a "soft fork", in that we have our changes
in it, but intend to keep up with upstream
Why we use our own version is to change the irrlicht
configuration, add features and fix bugs, that upstream may
not accept (or that upstream will eventually accept but this way
we don't need to wait for them before we can do
what we want)
I know that STK use the own Irrlicht. My static packages use the
stk irrlicht too. Is the stk version of Irrlicht a fork? Why do
you use an own version of it? The new Irrlicht revision works
very well on Tiger. And STK has compiled until 54%. The Tiger-
maybe also the Panther version is until 75% done. We could
release a new PPC version of STK 0.8 for Tiger, Panther, and for
Leopard too. Do you plan an update of your own Irrlicht version?
