I mentioned back in January that I was planning to publish a video introducing the progress on this project. This has taken longer than I hoped, mostly because I kept deciding to get more of the project done before recording the video. About two weeks ago I decided I was ready to work on the recording itself. It’s taken a while because I’ve been fixing bugs as they are encountered while planning the recording (this is alpha software, after all). Here is the outline for the recording – all of the features listed on this outline is implemented. I always start videos by making a Keynote presentation, that presentation is currently up to 92 slides, with probably about a couple dozen more to go. It’s probably going to take another week or two to get the video ready.
Here are a few screenshots from the keynote file. Of course these screenshots don’t mean a whole lot without context, but you’ll have to wait for the video for that.
As for a timetable for the delivering the software itself, I’m very reluctant since it seems that it always takes much longer than expected, but it should be on track to begin beta testing some time this summer. The code is about 95% feature complete, and documentation is probably about 30% complete.
