This report indicates the start of th 5th month of Ivan’s work on Synfig.
That’s right, our fundraising campaign have successfully reached its goal and that means Ivan will keep working on Synfig in December! Much thanks to all people who supported us!
The “Choose Priority” perk was claimed by Mestaritonttu and the choice is… “Continue the Bones development”! So, we will continue developing the bones feature, congratulations everyone!
But what about the current progress?
Last week Ivan added a possibility to link groups to the bones right on the workarea using the context menu and made possible to change the group transformation when it’s already linked to the bone.
You can see how it works in this video - http://youtu.be/qbWT9sjh36U
Unfortunately, the scale function doesn’t work properly for bones yet. Ivan spent a major part of his time to resolve issue, but it is still in progress. We hope to get that resolved this week.
Talking about me, I’ve been busy with chore tasks again. Trying to resolve with the stability problems for Linux packages of Synfig, I have completely rewrote our Linux build scripts. The new approach allows to build the packages without root privileges (which is very useful if we will decide to setup nightly builds on some server) and allows easily debug the current code before it goes to package. Well, users won’t feel direct benefits of that, so I won’t go deeper on this topic here.
That’s all for today, let’s keep rocking the new month!
