I am very happy to announce that we have a clean
and clear-cut agenda. This is the first time in memory
that software goals have been finite and not in conflict.
Several other projects (esp.) Dictron have been
assimilated to ZigZag, reducing conflicts of
So: we will be putting out successive versions
of ZigZag, with successively more powerful
and far-ranging capabilities. In the hope that
we can create a ZZ interface through a Push
server, transitioning to a multiplatform system
through Metrowerks can be postponed.
So that means going on in Perl for awhile.
Bek and Andrew have respectively two roles:
Bek: adding features, quality control;
Andrew: audacious changes and major mods.
SO HERE ARE THE NEXT VERSIONS:
zz1.0 & HZ2 (the Hot Ziggity Boot Disk)-- or
perhaps we should call them by the same v. no.
Formerly to be called "0.50", this will be the
**cleanup** version-- fulfilling promises, making
things neat. This will be principally done by Bek.
What features will be added? Negotiable.
It is more important to get out a clean new version
than to put a lot in-- unless they are features
that complete, or correct.
Principal fixes include: fixing Containment (etc.);
writing to floppy from Hot Ziggity; a few others.
This will incorporate zzPush, the Push server allowing
Netscape windows to show zz. And of course whatever
else was ready from Bek's desk.
Not assigned numbers but important ------------------
Ability to output and combine slices
Object-oriented version, especially with cell dating
and the ability to add new subcells and attributes
(to be discussed-- nonobvious structure)
And, of course, on and on and on.
