Development news

Even while there hasn’t been any releases for a while, the CVS is still pretty active, and I’ve been trying to get 0.7.99 out. Currently there’s just a few problems - I’d need to make a /STATUSBAR command to configure it and I’m not really sure how it could be done best.

The other more important problem is that I seem to have broken something in the last few weeks, since I’ve recently seen several strange crashes that must be because of memory corruption somewhere. Hopefully I’ll find the cause of this soon and can release .99 then.

After .99 I’ll begin some major changes including getting rid of glib (or optional perhaps), using memory pools and to stop using so many dynamic memory allocations (while still not using fixed size buffers, I’ve some ideas about this).
