News from Mar 13, 2016 – Mar 27, 2016
Hello and welcome to the eighth issue of This Week in Amethyst, a blog bringing you the latest changes and updates regarding the Amethyst game engine every week (or two). If you have any suggestions or ideas, feel free to voice them on GitHub or the Gitter chat.
Amethyst is now an organization on GitHub! All the Amethyst repositories have been transferred to this new organization, and the wiki is now completely open for collaborators to edit. The Gitter chat has also been split into multiple rooms to help keep conversations organized and reduce overall noise.
With these changes, some links may be broken. We will be fixing old links, especially on old TWIA articles, to ensure continuity. If you come across other broken links online, please let us know on the amethyst/website room on Gitter and we’ll go fix it!
The old WordPress blog is being discontinued in favor of this website. We will keep it up for the forseeable future to keep old links intact, but it will no longer be updated. Please update your bookmarks and RSS feeds!
The entity-component-system is still undergoing churn under engine issue #10 and on the “engine” chat room. To keep our thoughts straight, @kvark put together an excellent Gist summarizing our ideas so far. Check it out!
amethyst_toolscan now be run with
cargo test(pull request #21 by @LucioFranco).
amethystbuild tool’s subcommands API got a refactor (pull request #24 by @White-Oak).
