If you're a fairly active Dusk user, you might have noticed that very little has been pushed to the Dusk repository lately. Though this seems like inactivity, the truth is that I've been hard at work on Dusk. Dusk has been around for quite a while, but (believe it or not!) it's not even out of beta. I recently decided it was time to push for the 1.0 release. Thus, in my personal project, I completely overhauled Dusk for improved stability and usability. This version of Dusk, which has been several months in the making, is my first candidate for Dusk 1.0!
Dusk 1.0 is a completely remade version of Dusk which retains most of the current Dusk mechanisms but which isn't completely backwards-compatible. That said, it's definitely a big improvement and worth switching to when it's released. It has a much smaller memory footprint, is cleaner for development, and will be the new base for all further advancement.
Dusk 1.0 isn't ready for the public yet. Why am I posting about it, then? I need your input. I have a list of features and improvements I've seen multiple people ask for (API docs, anyone?), but if you have something you really want in Dusk, now is the time to ask for it. Dusk is used by a lot of people, but developed by only me. What fits really well in the engine for me may not fit the same for other people. If no one gives any suggestions, I'll continue in the direction I've been going, but I'd really appreciate some user input. Any ideas?
P.S. I just had to attach a screenshot of an upcoming demo for Dusk's 1.0 branch... demo.gif 54.05KB 11 downloads
