News from Jan 18, 2016 – Jan 25, 2016
Hello and welcome to the third issue of This Week in Amethyst, a blog bringing you the latest changes and updates regarding the Amethyst game engine every week. If you have any suggestions or ideas, feel free to call me out on [Gitter][gc].
amethystcrate now re-exports two sub-crates:
amethyst_engine(the core game engine), and
amethyst_renderer(the rendering system). More crates are forthcoming.
amethyst_clirepository has been renamed to
amethyst_tools. This will host the entirety of Amethyst’s future tool suite.
amethyst_clihas been discontinued. Please install
More feedback is still needed on the thread-safe ECS design tracked by [engine issue #10][e10]. Should we use existing ECS solutions, or should we write our own? Leave your input there.
In other news, there has been a recent explosion of activity [on the Gitter chat][gc], which is wonderful to see. Have any questions, suggestions, or comments? Come join the conversation!
