Build 3028 has been released; you can read about it on the Help Center.
Most importantly, 3028 is also the first Alpine Lakes release to the Release Channel! This brings all of the river-y goodness to folks who aren’t running Dev builds, as well as Basic Edition users.
For dev build users, it’s mostly bugfixes, but also a nice improvement to the SVG importer to allow almost all SVG files to import successfully.
Docs & Help
As promised, I’ve also been spending an hour or two a day lately filling out the documentation on the Help Center; the first pass through the alpine lakes docs is almost done.
I want the help center to not just have reference material, but also tutorials, guides, best practices, etc. It’s going to take some time to get there, but we’re on our way. If you have any interest in helping out, give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Lastly, I wanted to mention something; with the Help Center up and running, it now takes on the role of “formal” announcements of new builds.
This lets the dev blog be what it was originally intended to be – a window into the behind the scenes creation of World Machine. I’m looking forward to the return of that.
And so our focus can now mostly turn to the next “codename” build.
And what will that build be about?
With no exaggeration, the most profound changes ever made to World Machine. ….And they’ve been in progress on a side-branch for the last year.
There’s still a long way to go, but the time will come soon to start taking the wraps off things. This deserves its own post 🙂
