[Posted for Gnomi due to the ldmud-talk configuration issue]
We, Fuchur at Wunderland, Zesstra at Morgengrauen und Gnomi at UNItopia,
will in accordance with Lars continue the development of
the LDMud driver and would like to briefly present here our
ideas of where we want to go.
First of all the 3.3 series is going to be the current stable branch
where still new features will be incorporated as long as they don't
significantly endanger the stability of the driver. The 3.4 snapshots
will be discontinued and also the 3.2 series will only get major
Our primary goal is to fix those bugs that were reported in the bug
tracker and also to resolve these many open TODO items in the driver
source of the 3.3 series if this can be done without major
In the near future we want to start the next unstable branch, the
3.5 series of LDMud. It's probably going to focus on bugfixing, too.
Also complete support for 64 bit architectures (which nevertheless
may partly happen in 3.3, too), unicode support and some optimizations
of the internal data structures are goals for 3.5.
All of our future contributions and developments will be published under
the terms of the 2 clause BSD license (which requires retention of the
copyright notice, license conditions and the disclaimer in the source
code and reproduction of them in the documentation) and we will only
accept patches under this license. Regardless of these provisions the
current license condition of the driver that it should not be used for
a monetary gain whatsoever will stay, but this step may ease a license
change in a remote future.
If you want to support us in the development of the driver, we would
be more than happy about ideas, code contributions (like bugfixes and
new features), but also about assistance in improving the documentation
or just about testers that write nice bug reports...
