I recently stumbled upon Trello, a cool new service that provides simple task-oriented project organization. As an experiment, I have added a Trello board for Little Go and put most of the roadmap features and TODO ideas up on that board. Have a look and let me know what you think about it.
I just released dgsmonX 0.2.2 (project page). This version should hopefully work again with DGS 1.0.15 (see previous post). If you encounter any issues, please let know by email.
The release of the Dragon Go Server software version 1.0.15 thoroughly broke dgsmonX because DGS no longer accepts unauthenticated game checks via
quick_status.php. While working on a fix for this I happened to notice that
quick_status.php accepts user ID and password as arguments. A corresponding URL looks like this:
A couple of days ago Little Go 0.8.1 has been released to the App Store, and today I have put up the source tar ball on the project page. Even though the new version has only 2 new things it's definitely worth the upgrade: You'll get an important bugfix and a new spiffy app icon (contributed by Daniel Máslo).
This site is undergoing maintenance: I am in the middle of upgrading from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, and as you can see for yourself quite a few things do not yet work as they should. Thank you for your patience while I try to get everything back into shape.
Update, 19 June 2012: Most of the site should now work again as before. The former site theme (Sky) unfortunately is no longer available with the same design, so for the moment I'm leaving the site on the core theme, Garland. On the plus side: Comments are now protected again with reCAPTCHA.
Today Little Go 0.8.0 (project page) has been released to the App Store. This version introduces iPad support, including hi-res icons for the retina display of the iPad 3. The user interface remains largely unchanged, though, and has not been adapted to take advantage of the larger screen estate available on the iPad.
I just came across yet another article that touts Git as "a version control Swiss army knife". The comparison annoys me! I was born and bred in Switzerland, and I know from first-hand experience that a real Swiss army knife is small, handy and has only a few tools. In short, this:
Git, on the other hand, is more like this:
(I do like Git, but please don't compare it to a Swiss army knife).
dgsmonX 0.2.1 is out already. This release addresses a compatibility issue with the previous release 0.2 (made one week ago) which made it impossible to launch the application on Mac OS X 10.5 and earlier. The new release should now work correctly on 10.5, but unfortunately support for Mac OS X 10.4 had to be dropped. Get the new version from the project page.
