Tasks

I am working on a new implementation of tasks that will make creating new UIs much simpler. Basically, there is a new base class, called a TTask which handles all events from the CroquetHarness. Even the default interface in Croquet is implemented this way.

An event is interpreted and redirected by the task object. The default task simply forwards the event to the initially selected object, which is just what happens now.

Ultimately, any portal will be able to reinterpret the events via their own task objects.

This is a test

I am trying to determine if my blog is actually getting updated or not. I posted something yesterday that I still don't see.

The next developer release is coming...

Something's Coming

--Leonard Berstein & Stephen Sondheim

Something's Coming


Could be! Who knows?
There's something due any day;
I will know right away,
Soon as it shows.
It may come cannon-balling down thru the sky,
Gleam in its eye,
Bright as a rose!

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Under a tree...
I got a feeling there's a miracle due,
Gonna come true,
Coming to me!

Could it be? Yes it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming,
I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!

With a click, with a shock,
Phone'll jingle, door'll knock,
Open the latch!
Something's coming, don't know when--
but it's soon;
Catch the moon,
One-handed catch!

Around the corner,
Or whistling down the river,
Come on, deliever
To me.

Will it be? Yes, it will.
Maybe just by holding still,
It'll be there!

Come on something, come on in,
don'tbe shy,
Meet a guy,
Pull up a chair!

The air is humming,
And something great is coming!

Who knows?
It's only just out of reach,
Down the block, on a beach,
Maybe tonight....
