World Machine Pro Development

Musing and Progress, October 2010

Hey folks,

It’s been a little while since I’ve written last. WM came out, the website has been revamped a good bit, so what’s next on the agenda?

Well, first and foremost is a small release to fix some of the new bugs that have been discovered since WM 2.2’s release. Rolling out an updater should be much less painful this time since there are no installer changes or document folder changes that have to happen. Besides bugs, it will also include a few small new features like an integrated update checker, very simple multimonitor support (full, more dynamic multimon won’t be just yet), etc.

I’d like to get a small feature-improving update out this year as well, although timing is tight on that one. Perhaps more useful would be to get more tutorial-type information up on the website, such as adding video tutorials — this has been a goal of mine for a while, one which I’m finally ready to tackle.

More broadly, I’ve been looking at the possibility of opening up WM into a new subfield where it has already had some success; I’ll post more on this in a little while, as work has been going on behind the scenes for a while now on this one. More to come.
