What happened recently

After creating this project on sourceforge, I contacted some people on demoscene to have a look at the concept. The main feedback I got was that it was a nice idea but it would have to be concrete to be accepted and used.
Also, Gruiiik / epidemic, gave me a hand on the launcher.

Planning changes

Since, I decided to change planning and add a proof-of-concept step before the first milestone. The idea was to use Xnfo before the specification was finished to see if new ideas would come, or more compliant things should be needed.
In fact it takes also more time than expected, so we have to focus on what's the most important.

What changed

We thought that, at first people may not care about XSD because it's not easy to use, and it's not well supported. People should prefer simple working software, so XSD will come later.



As it's the beginning of the project, we must finish foundations. The goals in priority order are : Once it's done, the second objective is adding support for integration with online databases. Later, we'll see.

How can you help
