News - October 2001   

Sunday 7th October 2001

Well, the good news is that after a few ridiculously work-filled weeks, XMaps is getting my attention again.  The bad news, though, is that I'm not sure where else I can take it.  Interest in new features has fallen significantly, but I suppose that's not surprising - there's not much more XMaps could actually do without just adding stuff for the sake of it.

The Mutator Pool idea in the To-do List has been generally panned, and I guess I can see that point of view - too great a potential for conflicting Mutator combinations without adding much to the game.  Maybe I'll just mop up any reported bugs in a 'final' release, and wait for a new project to grab my attention...
