Björn releases wings-1.0-rc1 after 8 years of development!

This is a great moment in the history of Wings 3D. A program that began as a "Can this be done in Erlang?" project has proved, yes it can and more. Here's what Björn wrote to launch the release of wings-1.0-rc1 on the Wings Official Development Forum:

I started developing Wings about eight years ago and I think it is high time that Wings reached 1.0.

So here 1.0-rc1, that is the first release candidate for the 1.0 release. We will probably release a few more release candidates only containing bug fixes (no new features),
and then we will release 1.0.... read more

Other changes to Tweak include are included in the release notes.... read more

0.99.xx track started

We started the 0.99.xx track in December last year.


Because we want to start moving towards 1.0. An "1.0" of an application is usually the first version of an application that does something useful. It seems that Wings has passed that stage a long time ago.

So in the 0.99.xx track, we will attempt to fix as many bugs and major shortcomings as possible, before we bump the version number to 1.0, probably before the end of the year.... read more
