So...been a while huh? Unfortunately I don't just work on Xion in my spare time. I also have to work a day job to pay my bills, eat, etc. I have a few other projects that I spend time on too. I've been working on some projects that can hopefully bring an income in so I can spend more time on things like Xion. Life has also gotten in the way a few times for me but things are going great now.
I've had lots of time to think about where I'd like to take Xion. I do have big plans for it and some big choices to make going forward. I'm also just one guy doing this and my many other projects, so who knows how long it will take. If only I could clone myself.
I've made some rather large structural changes to the way that Xion works, including optimizations and improvements. There's also a slew of new skin features.
I've also looked over a large amount of Feature requests. Wow. There certainly are a lot. They're also spread across the uservoice and forums which is my fault for segmenting it a while back and not cleaning the forums up. I really like the uservoice stuff because it allows me to see how popular a feature request is with everyone. Some of the features would be incredibly easier if I made certain other structural changes. I've got a lot to think about for future Xion versions.
Saying all that, I'm at a point now where I'm happy with the build. I'm just waiting on some final changes from Lance before releasing a new Beta build. If that goes well I'll follow it up with a release build. The reason for this is previously people have started releasing skins that use Beta features and users thought they were just issues with the skins themselves.
2 years late, but almost there.
