During the development for 0.9.0 I thought I was ramping up for the big one-oh release, but as I dig deeper into the theme I’m finding that there are a few more cycles of disruptive development before I’m ready to settle into a maintenance cycle. WuCoco 0.10.0 features…
- The much requested three column variant. I’d like to thank Soulpress.net for generously sponsoring the development of this feature.
- A completely revamped layout engine, based on the Octopus Engine from Dragon Labs. Now that WuCoco no longer relies on faux columns it’s much easier to adjust column-width, and I no longer have to maintain separate graphic assets for the different variants. As an added bonus, it’s possible to easily switch to independent column heights if you choose.
The new layout engine involves a lot of changes under the hood. It’s quite possible that rendering bugs have been introduced, so speak up if you find one. By now, you know the drill: Download the one-column layout, the two-column layout, the new three-column layout, or the image sources in Gimp XCF format.
