Targeting the 0.4 release

From AdamZaius on the dev mailing list:

For the 0.4 target - we are going to be aiming at having a good quality 'offline sandbox', perhaps with some import/export functionality built in. Specifically the things that have been discussed have been:

-- End User Focused Features --

  • Focus on sandbox mode, leave grid mode 'as is' until 0.5 and mark it


  • Easier to configure & run simulators - GUI configuration and

management tools need to be written. Cross-platform WinForms was discussed (while also having a CLI option)

  • An Installer for windows users (an OSX one would be good too, but

someone needs to volunteer to maintain it)

  • A client launcher application - a quick tool which launches the client

with the appropriate login URI parameters (seperate from the sim)

  • Up-to-Date Documentation

-- Sim Features --

  • Collision detection with prims in BasicPhysics mode
  • Proper save/restore functionality with local storage
  • Inventory (even if sandbox confined)

-- Misc --

  • Store read/write data files in %APPLICATION_DATA% on Windows, to be

compatible with limited users in Vista and XP.
