What are BZFlag staff focusing on now?

Post by Quicksilver » Tue Dec 16, 2008 1:24 am

I'm just wondering, what are you BZFlag staff focusing on right now? The forums in phpbb3? 3.0 Bzflag? New bzflag home page (which it really deserves a better homepage)? etc?

I guess the question should be, which of these do you want to work on. Yes, all of them are goals we have...

learner to make a post like that at least use the proper sign of pie <). And on topic it's probably getting the bugs out of the new forum version if i had to guess,personally id rather see 3.0 out right now then a new forum version but then again,one is much harder to do then the other..

If I'd wanted to use silly ascii art, I would have used it. It's entirely on topic if you're a dev.

The subtle undertone and meaning of those words are beyond comprehension if one does not live on the IRC channel. I said pie. I meant pie. Everybody likes pie.

I suppose in addition to pie, another answer to that question would be passive stabilization of the 3.0 line so that we can theoretically/hopefully/eventually push out a release as soon as all of the critical bugs are sorted out. It is passive, though, with a fair bit of new development now going on by at least one prodigal dev. Pressing towards a release also involves a lot of cat herding, which isn't always a productive activity. Also, a lot of changes have gone into pushing much of the game into the server which has in turn introduced a lot of instability that needs to be sorted out. That's and other bugs are the present show-stoppers.

New years relaxations, libations, and distractions notwithstanding...
