I'd like to suggest a feature:

Axe libraries are fully recompiled everytime you compile a program that uses them. It can often take over half the time needed to compile the program. Therefore, it would be nice if there was a way to precompile axe libraries (maybe into axioms?), to decrease the time needed for compilation.
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

How about ... 84C integration?!

Oops sorry, my bad i really should have checked the other pages :S.

One of the items that i received the most feedback on regarding the xLIB project is the lack of oncalc documentation.

Both of these are goals for Axe 2.0.

How many releases are planned before 2.0?

Hopefully it's out before Sam Heald starts working on his Zelda clone again. :P

Only one, and possibly a quick follow-up second if there are any huge bugs.

Can we get a specification showing what commands compile into? That would allow for many spinoff projects, like compilers for the PC. (PC compiler for z80 binaries)

The commands.inc file is exactly that.

Perhaps a command that draws a triangle with coordinates: (x1,y1),(x1,y2),(x2,y2)
And perhaps a command that creates a bit map of a random triangle,
which might be done by filling it completely and then erasing the edges by the previous proposed command.
I think this would be a great base for jobs like drawing skewed sprites (defined by 4 random points and a sprite).

Just having the first triangle command you mentioned would be enough, considering Axe already has a random number generator. It wouldn't help with skewed sprites, though, since you would still have to do the whole "stretch sprite" bit.

If you want skewed sprites, try convincing them to allow the single-byte draws. Then you can at least do horizontal/vertical skews. (whichever direction the LCD stores, I think vertical thus 6-byte text.)

Drawing triangles (and other arbitrary shapes) is pretty tough. I think such a routine would be cool too, but I can't see it fitting (literally) into Axe for now.

Perhaps this Axiom by Matrefeytontias could help? The triangle drawing command is only intended for use in 3D rendering as far as I can tell, but perhaps that's what you wanted it for anyways and it's an extra bonus? :P

The triangle thing is not particularly intended for 3D rendering, it's just a triangle filler.
