So what's going on?
October 8th, 2006

So I start the whole development releases thing with some fanfare, and then I disappear for two and a half months.  What gives?

Well, part of that time was spent experimenting with what could become Natural Docs 2.0.  I don't know if it's going to pan out or not at this point — it's far too early to tell and it can honestly go either way — so I'm not going to go into the details just yet.  It's going to take a while if it does so there's still plenty more life in the current code base.  I'm going to be dividing my time between the two based on whichever captures my interest at the moment.  I'm not paid to do this (other than donations) so that's the best way to stay motivated, to work on what I want to work on at the moment.

I'm probably going to jump back into the current code base for a while, though, to tie up the loose ends in the current development release and to try to satisfy the big donations that came in for full JavaScript and PHP support.  I have to bite the bullet and push C++ back, because that always required a couple of features from the 2.0 engine and I don't want to keep delaying some of the easier languages in favor of it.

So that's it.  Maybe next update I'll have something new for you to play with.
