5.0.13 out now

Well, that's 5.0.13 out now.  The most noticeable thing with this version is that it uses the Microsoft Ribbon interface.  I've also implemented a folder structure, so rather than just having a set number of lists, each list can contain subfolders etc, which should make organising your adventure much easier.

This is the first release that non registered members should be able to run.  Obviously, the software is restricted in this mode.

Here's a screenshot of the main form with it's new look...

Changes in this release are:

  • Password protection (ID 598)
  • "About" box (ID 597)
  • Warn if no libraries are loaded (ID 487)
  • Adventure Settings saved with taf file. (ID 403)
  • Folders (ID 489)
  • Sorting of rooms and objects (ID 524)

Bug Fixes
  • Player is on object issue (ID 624)
  • Picture not showing in into screen (ID 599)

Blog created

After reading posts in intfiction.org I figured it would be a good idea to create a blog for ADRIFT 5, so I can jot down thoughts, and so everyone can easily follow progress.

There is a summary page at www.adrift.org.uk which has a couple of screenshots and a bullet point list of what is new in v5.

At the current moment in time, ADRIFT 5 is currently at version 5.0.12.  This is an alpha version which is available to all registered users of version 4.

I will soon be releasing version 5.0.13, which has a radical new interface consisting of the Microsoft Ribbon, and also a hierarchical folder support, similar to that of Windows Explorer, along with various bug fixes.
