G System 0.5 goes BETA
The G System is a free simulation framework and virtual reality.
The framework provides network distributed operation, which allows for
The virtual reality created with the G System, called G Universe,
focuses on evolution, thus creating a virtual, multi-user, evolving
universe with both adventurous and scientific aspects.
Many months after the 0.4 release of the G System, the 0.5 release
series is finally dawning. As already hinted by the 0.4 release, this
new release is the first with real network support, among many other
improvements. Building on the XMPP standard, the G System is an open
network with XML based communication.
We decided to provide a BETA before the final release to allow well
testing, in particular of the network code. The BETA period depends
on user feedback and bugs we encounter but will be approximately one
or two weeks.
The current release contains all libraries, a demo (gdemo), a KDE
based configuration utility (god), a server frontend (guniverse) and
a KDE based client (guniverseclient). There is also plenty of
documentation available, including an API reference.
If you would like to join the virtual universe and help us to provide
a stable 0.5 release, or are just excited about the G System in
general, please download the BETA release and contact us at the user
mailing list. Bugs should be sent to the bugs mailing list. We
appreciate your support and feedback and hope to bring you an
interesting and enjoyable evolving universe. Please make sure that
you register at least to the user mailing list, important BETA
testing information will be posted there like server downtimes and
upates. You can also ask any questions regarding the BETA release on
the user mailing list.
