Where is my Minion?!

Okay so we're a little behind schedule.

Unfortunately, it had not occurred to me that a consequence of one of the risks I mentioned in my initial release schedule post (the fact that I'm going to an internship) would be that I don't have internet up here!

Unfortunately, that lack of internet has severely interrupted testing. There are a few things that really need to be worked out before we can release, for two reasons. Firstly, I want the API to be fairly stable so authors of modules don't have to be messing around as things change. Secondly, I don't want to release something until it truly is of beta quality. Beta, to me, does not mean broken. It means like what Windows 7 build 7000 was -- very usable, but may have a few glitches here or there that don't really impact much.

So that's why it's not out yet. It shouldn't take more than a week to get everything out. If I had to give a date, I'd give you Sunday, but if it's ready sooner I'll post it then. I wouldn't count on it being later than Sunday, though.

Sorry guys,
-- Shirik

I believe the old saying goes "Good things come to those who wait."

Thank you for the update

I'm sorry, did you put the words "Windows" and "useable" in the same sentance?

Just kidding. Thanks for the update, can't wait to test it.

It's not a problem with me. Real life ensues and this is just for video games really. All be it, really good video games that are addictive and like a narcotic, but just video games all the same.

Your keeping us up-to-date on what's going on, so I'm happy. Grats on the internship btw hope it goes well/it's going well.

As we say in Germany: "Gut' Ding will Weile haben"! Take the time you need, I fully understand your point not releasing a product you are not satisfied with. And you keep us up to date, so we know about the status of minion.

Oh and btw: good luck with your internship
