It’s been a while since the last blog posting! I just wanted to wish everyone a merry christmas and happy holidays around the world.
Things have been a bit quiet lately as I’ve had a couple things happening in real life that have demanded a great deal of attention; however there is another bug fix release coming along soon for WM 2.
It should be a much easier upgrade than WM 2.1 has been, as the lack of file path changes means that it will be much harder to break anything.
The main things being slated for the next minor release are:
1) Bugfixes. Obviously! A number of discovered issues should be fixed — which ones I will post soon.
2) Improved memory handling. I’ve been experimenting with a system to automatically page out (currently unneeded) heightfields to disk, allowing for worlds to be built much more effectively when RAM is an issue.
3) Functionality improvements — other than the memory issues, there aren’t a ton currently slated.
Between Christmas and the New Year I’m going to set down and plan out the course of WM 2 through the next year, so I should have more to share with you all regarding future developments then.
