Neal won’t buy me more beer until I update my blog (and my laptop to Fedora). So this one, the first in a long time, is for him. The reaon for the blackout is that I’m busy at home with Lori due at the end of March, plus our mailserver has some strange internet-traffic-doubling setup which rejected my password reset email (I forgot my password).
Last week Karina, Dave and I hacked up a simple clutter backend using OpenSG. It’s not as trivial as it sounds. We first had to wrap specific OpenSG C++ calls in a state-machine C API. We wrote a C++ library which exports some useful calls as extern C.
In its current state it builds. It also builds as part of clutter. This weeks task is to (a) fork the clutter-ivan branch to clutter-osg, (b) merge our work onto clutter-osg and (c) hopefully make a window actually show something . As you can see, we’re going upstream, which is good. We’re becoming part of the clutter project, if only an expirimental branch for the moment.
