Hi, just a few comments on other status that may interest. I have been testing tcp/ip networking with an implementation of the network sensor nodes in Flux. I have been able to get the basic test examples to work with two linux servers. An example of the nodes is given below. For the mass avatar event at siggraph I will be working on modifying the communications for UDP.
This raises the possibility of testing vos server with these nodes if ur inteterested. A description of the test examples and MM server is at http://www.mediamachines.com/hydra/ my experience with installing / running the server is at: http://planet-earth.org/smam/fluxServerInstallRun.html tho u would be wanting to run your own vos server. I am also running a 2 hr multisuer virtual world BOF at siggraph (August) so if you want me to demo vos let me know. I would want something that would not require old browser versions, old java etc if possible because I need to be able to demo other stuff with current tech as well. cheers, chris ?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE X3D PUBLIC "ISO//Web3D//DTD X3D 3.0//EN" "http://www.web3d.org/specifications/x3d-3.0.dtd "> <X3D profile='Immersive' > <Scene> <Group> <Transform DEF='CUBE_TRANSFORM'> <Shape containerField='children'> <Appearance containerField='appearance'> <Material DEF='Blue' containerField='material' ambientIntensity='0.200' shininess='0.200' diffuseColor='0 0 1'/> </Appearance> <Box containerField='geometry' size='1 1 1'/> </Shape> </Transform> <PlaneSensor DEF='PS'/> </Group> <NetworkSensor DEF='ES' networkSensorId='ES'> <field name='translation' type='SFVec3f' accessType='inputOutput'/> <Connection DEF='muserver' containerField='connection' url="'swmp://188.8.131.52:13214/MM-6-12345678'"/> </NetworkSensor> <ROUTE fromNode='PS' fromField='translation_changed' toNode='ES' toField='set_translation'/> <ROUTE fromNode='ES' fromField='translation_changed' toNode='CUBE_TRANSFORM' toField='set_translation'/> </Scene> </X3D> On 08/06/07, Peter Amstutz <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote:
Ok, things have been a bit quiet lately, so I want to let everyone know what's going on with VOS. The first bit of news is that starting in July, I will be able to dedicate half of my time (20-30 hours a week) to VOS development. I have made an arrangement with my current employer to work part time, so this works out well for everyone. Second, I am continuing to do design work on s5, and have spent some coding time doing prototyping certain crucial features to better understand them. I've made some progress in understanding how better to structure control flow in the presence of asynchronous requests (in s5, *all* requests will be asynchronous) by using continuations and futures. I'm also investigating some ideas for a new security design, which I hope to write about to the list shortly. Third, s5 is going to use a Python-based build system called "Scons", which I described in my email about build systems a little while ago. I hope that this will enable a degree of automation and cross-platform support that is impossible with autotools. I've spent some time hacking on it and I'm comfortable with it, and it is under active development so it seems like a safe bet. Fourth, my intention is that come July, I will hit the ground running with implementing s5 -- you will start seeing real progress and not just talk. My hope is that in as little as a month or two, I can have enough of the s5 kernel written that other people interested in helping can contribute. Fifth, I've set up a task tracking system called XPlanner at http://interreality.org/xplanner (login: guest, password: guest). You can view a detailed breakdown of our development roadmap, and see both how long we expect things to take and what progress (if any) has been made. I think that about covers it.
