Ex-php dev. Working on a 2d graphics editor

I'll be posting quick updates in this thread.

Ok. the ETA for 0.1 moved to October.

There's couple changes in the project. I was going to work in a private repo and only use github for releases.
But I switched to github for everything. It'll be easier this way. So all the recent changes are there.
0.1 will be linux-only release. I want to focus on 1 platform first.

Also, I'm dropping the idea of using DLLs, at least in the base version of this app. I just like the idea of having one executable for everything.

At the moment I'm doing the i/o properly. IOCP on windows, epoll on Linux.
It's close, but more work is needed.

I've also probably given up on the idea to have a single thread do everything. The main thread is going to process requests, and the maintenace thread will wake up every now and then to do DB tasks and so on. I just want the main thread to block on accepting new connections, and I dont want my maintenance tasks interfering with that.

That's it for now. The release is coming, but it's somehat delayed because, of course, I spent 2 weeks developing an engine for the next Ludum Dare jam. Sigh.

Thanks for you patience and I'll see you all next time.

Good luck with this project, man! Rootin' for you!

It would be lovely to have a executable web server like this.
