wow, openframeworks is a great project! I’m glad to see such an active forum.
I’ve been following the codebase for a while now and I am excited to see some somewhat large changes being made. I’m sure there are still lots of little bugs to work out, but I am looking forward to the release (hopefully soon – Jan 1, 2009?) of 006.
I think putting the next release together soon is important because the current process of downloading 005 and patching it is a bit tedious. In addition, there are some dangling dependencies (i.e., Poco, which I’m excited to hear you are now integrating!) so the download-and-fix strategy doesn’t work so well anymore.
Also, having the example applications ready to compile/edit in CodeBlocks was a good idea to lower the barrier to getting started. One bug I recently found was that many of the linux projects don’t include the “events” folder by default; simple to fix but probably worth changing before 006 to save a few headaches.
Keep up the great ideas – I’m definitely an advocate of your initiative.
