Spam bots have started becoming bolder lately, bypassing captcha checks and posting about those "medicine" links we all love so much. I'm looking for alternatives, but for now I've been forced to disable anonymous comments. Annoying as that may be, please consider registering a handle (a mere two clicks away, and thankfully without a round trip through your emails).
We have been silent the past few days, but we are slowly ramping up for the 0.9.1 release. Inertia is currently working on CLS-compliant overloads to OpenAL, while I am trying to improve OpenTK on Linux (having completely moved my main system over) - we have encountered some problems with OpenAL/Linux and are currently implementing workarounds.
All in all we feel 0.9.1 will be a strong release, with many new features. 0.9.2 will be mainly focused on bugfixes and documentation, while the main missing features (joysticks and native Mac OS X drivers) are scheduled for 0.9.3 and later releases.
If you have some spare time and would like to lend us a hand, here are some things OpenTK could use:
- A .wav loader (here's a more complete reference)
- An .ogg loader built on cs vorbis. The loading part itself is fully implemented in csvorbis, we just need to get a working "frontend" over it.
- Support for more font layout options in
OpenTK.TextPrinter. Basic left-to-right layout is implemented, but we are currently missing word-wrapping and, justified and right-to-left options.
We are planning to work on these features for OpenTK 1.0, but we won't do so until the core API is complete; consider helping out if you wish to see them earlier!
Stay tuned for updates.
