LotusScript.doc – an update…

So it’s been very quiet lately around LotusScript.doc and I’m a bit ashamed that I haven’t written anything publicly about it for a long time. Prompted by this comment and numerous conversations at ILUG2008 I think it’s time for an update.

The state of affairs is that version 2 is almost done. With that said with new job and rebuilding my appartment I just haven’t had the time. Playing with new projects like TwitNotes has also taken some attention away from the project. Since it’s been so long I cannot remember the exact state of the project but I seem to remember that I’m very close to a release candidate. Last time I worked on the code I was writing @-command recognizers. All the major code stuff is done with the new engine being in Java. Apart from finishing the recognizers I also need to wire the new backend code to the UI and maybe look into doing a new UI.

All in all I should be able to have at least a release candiate ready at the end of the summer. Still no promises but I really want to have this done and out the door.

I’ll post more when I have more info to share and when I have looked into the code base again. After all – isn’t that what long flat stages in the Tour de France is for? 🙂
