Technology Not Currently In Development
Currently in public release are binaries for the Application
development paradigm, full source and binaries for an initial base of
modules and full source and binaries for a few demo applications.
interfaces for the libraries, usage conventions and standards are still
a great state of flux and evolution. It is not really in
beta stage yet and is really more of an alpha or a
preview. By following some of the demo apps as examples,
programmers can use the development package to create their own
applications with Vision.
The included license basically says that you can do or make whatever you want with Vision, the repository modules and the demo apps just so long as it is non-commercial. Any parties interested in using Vision technology for commercial purposes need to acquire a commercial use license. Send an email to [email protected] if you are interested in acquiring such a license.
Please feel free to play around with Vision, adapt/improve/add to the middleware modules and use it to start making great apps with next generation interfaces. Please report bugs, usage questions, feature requests and other questions to [email protected]. Bug fixes, better documentation, additional features and more demo apps are always being worked on and new releases should show up here.
Vision has only been tested with the latest version of Mac OS X and XCode for PPC systems. For right now Vision only works on 10.4. Applications that make use of module unloading will only correctly run on 10.4.1 or higher and applications that make use of module reloading (like VisionEditor) have a risk of crashing until a future version of Mac OS X. Although Universal binaries are present and the project targets build them (in the Release configuration) they will most likely not run correctly on x86 systems natively until testing can be done.
