Harpoon III Port?

October 30th, 2001 by Crusader

For those john paul jonesing for a naval warfare simulation, here’s some possible good news fromthe current maintainer of Harpoon III (which was originallyreleased for the Macintosh many moons ago):

Yup, there is a Linux version in the works…it hasn’t been publiclyannounced yet, but someone is currently working on a Linux port(under NDA currently and about to sign a Licensing Contract withAGSI). It’s at a _very_ _early_ stage (last I talked with him, hewas still working on getting all the names to lower case, sinceUnix/Linux is case sensitive, but MacOS and DOS/Win32 are not).

Crystal Space 0.90r001

October 30th, 2001 by Crusader

Version 0.90r001 ofCrystal Space, the open source 3D engine, has been released:

This is version 0.90 and it isa MAJOR step since the last official release (0.18). This releaseis actually in preparation for the long-expected 1.0 release.One of the most important goals we had to reach in order to beable to release 1.0 is API stability. Programming a game withCrystal Space was difficult because CS was a moving target. The0.90 release will try to end this race by stabilizing the API.Between 0.90 and 1.0 we will most likely have to do small APIchanges for things we forgot but this should now have minimaleffect on applications using CS.

The absolutely massive changelog can be found here.
