##### What I'm Going to Do
« on: August 23, 2010, 05:15:07 pm »
My activity with the Axe Parser project is already slowing down due to college related things and so I've decided I need to get 1.0.0 out as soon as possible.  I will not be spending my time on new commands as much unless they are essential to most programs.  This is because things like automated tile mapping, 3D graphics, automated multidimensional arrays/linked lists, compression/decompression etc. can all be done with Axiom expansions.  Instead, what I will be focusing most on is expanding the block types like switch statements for instance, optimizations, and improving the Axioms themselves so that its very simple for even novice asm programmers to expand the functionality.

There is also the contest deadline approaching soon.  I have noticed that there are many people who are still using older versions because they fear that syntax change, new bugs, or future changes will be too much effort to switch over to a newer version.  Well, now is your chance because 0.4.4 is very stable and bug free as far as I know and I will not be having anymore updates until after the contest deadline unless its specifically to fix bugs.  I doubt I will be active enough for weekly updates anymore but as some of you know, I was planning to do a feature freeze to give everyone a fair shot at the contest anyway.

I am in no way quitting this project or trying to end it early.  I will continue progress even after 1.0.0.  However I have to be realistic about the amount of time I'm going to have to actually work on it.  Its possible I will make much of the source open after the final version so that others can collaborate to help me expand the features.

Sounds like a plan!  And good luck with your college related stuff

cool, I have to say, Axe Parser has been the only project I've updated every time since I discovered it.

Sounds like a good plan. I remember you told me about the feature freeze back in May. I hope you don't get too busy and end up like Simplethinker or Nitacku last year, though. It would suck, especially if you enjoyed working on the project. X.x

I think Axe is really great as it is now and it's pretty much ready for 1.0.0 status. Since the contest is almost done, I guess it's a good idea to wait until it ends before attempting a 1.0.0 release, though.

I do not participate to a contest, but my Supersonic Ball game uses Axe features from version 0.2.6. I did not start using new features yet. Hopefully I'll try to get familiar with the new ones, soon, though.
* DJ Omnimaga hopes Quigibo will stick around for a while after Axe is done, even if less active.

It's actually pretty hard to get newer versions of Axe to my calc atm, but I'm working with a fairly recent version.

Long live Axe! I would enjoy it very much if you made it OpenSource!

It's probably a good idea to wait until the end of the contest to release 1.0.0. This version seems pretty stable and bug-free. Also, I think it's a good idea to make it open source  if you're going to slow down releases... Tilemapping, bidimentional arrays and (who knows) 3d may be features that the open source community can help with if you're short on time.

I wonder if Calc84maniac could maybe help on Mode 7? That said, I wonder if his engine worked on the Nspire, though.
