Ok, here it is, things have finally settled and we are happy to bring you the first alpha release for Yzis. The foundations are stabilizing, and we are now focusing on fixing bugs and porting to different architectures, OSs, and interfaces.
What you have so far :
- nyzis (curses frontend) working under linux.
- qyzis (Qt frontend) working under linux and windows.
- A windows installer.
- All tests (both unit tests and lua/script tests) pass.
- Most important bugs in the bugtracker fixed.
The most noteworthy missing feature is the KDE embeddable component, we are aware of this, and this is the main thing we shall work on after 1.0 is out.
At this point, we are not yet asking for broad testing, but developers not afraid of bleeding edge are encouraged to test it out. If you can help with porting/solving bugs, this is of course even better.
You can join us on #yzis on freenode to discuss all of this.
The web site has been updated, and you should find information about getting the source from source control (mercurial) and compiling on most platforms.
The tarballs and the windows installer can be downloaded from this url:
Below are some screenshots showing the different interfaces (qt/linux, ncurses, qt/windows):
