Recent builds

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Sat Feb 28, 2009 11:50 am

We are in recent builds doing less feature work and more bug fixes, but we have some features we literally have to get through before 1.0. If we did them all at once, it'd introduce more bugs than doing it bit by bit.

Obviously users want a stable Construct, but compared to 12 months ago, we're miles ahead in stability, and features, so it's working. We just need to do that little bit more testing to ensure obvious mistakes don't occur, and everything's gravy.

There's a spot on the home page for nightly builds:

Couldn't you just use the Dropbox service, and place the untested builds there?
All you would need is one link, and just rename the file to something like Construct-latest-untested.exe?
Heck you could even have a Construct group folder to put it in, that way you'd always have the bleeding edge build.

We could do, but the builds we release generally have been tested, just not to the extent which hundreds of people using it will show, there'll still be some issues - even if very small - in most builds till 1.0.

I like the idea of it personally, so I'll probably do it.

i bet that when you finish 1.0 , you will build 2.0 from( or mostly from) scratch, because i'm preatty shure that while you building up to 1.0 version, you think "that this part of softwer could be done difrent, but it's to late now"?

It's sod's law, and you always think of "better" ways of doing it when it's after the fact. :lol:

I'm sure I read on one of the main pages that they intend to drop the 3rd party GUI after version 1, and utilise the normal Windows API.

I'd welcome that.

That's right, we want to use MFC 10 (when it's released) and ditch the current UI library that we have to pay for out of donations at the moment.

Well, in a way, yeah, but usualy second or third code is way better than the first, because you gain an expiriance you did not had when you started for the first time. Same with everything else.
