Copter Commander News

Recent Work

July 23 2005: Well, we never officially released a 2.0 version. Now we're pushing into the bold new world of another major version, with a port to gnome-2, and serious testing on many OSes (Debian, Fedora, FreeBSD, and OSX+Fink). In the meantime, 1.8 was pretty stable, but since gtk-1.4 is sufficiently old that its not being included with all distros these days, its usefullness is waning. The current cvs head will eventually become version 3.0. It won't be perfect - it'll be a dot-oh release. If there's demand, 1.8 will be repackged as 2.0.
