Yeah, you read right: Version 16 of niven's object management is done and works - better than expected. The long long quest for the ideal object manager is over now. During this time, I have written a thread library, three garbage collectors, went through 20 different file formats, one minor release of TinyXML, a huge stack of research papers, 10 pages of design documents, approx. 200 hours of development and a truck of Coke, but hey, it was really worth it, and the last system does really reflect what I have learned during that time :) I hope to be able to close the nivenCore development soon and get on to the really interesting part, the rendering engine. Stay tuned for the first teaser images during the next few months.
