1.4 and 1.3.6

Ok here’s a quick update for those of you not in the loop (i.e. on irc 24/7).

There will be two new versions of NASA World Wind released next month, both “should” be functionally identical, 1.3.6 will be a .NET 1.1 build (so that people don’t have the hassle of getting IT staff to install .NET 2.0), and 1.4 which will be .NET 2.0 (most home users should just install this one).

There are lots of reasons for this dual release, read the #worldwind channel logs for more details, this is basically a transition release before .NET 1.1 is dropped, then all the nifty .NET 2.0 features can be used.

  • Ooh, nice new splash screen.
    So much for 1.4 being cancelled. Should that be fixed? But anyway, good news. June/July 2006…that’s past. I’d update, but I’m not “in the loop” enough to do it right. :P

  • Yup I told Chris making a 1.4 was going to mean trouble for me, after insisting for over 6 months 1.4 would be skipped. As for the wiki feel free to update it, we really don’t have enough wiki editors, and it’s easier for us to fix any mistakes than make big changes .
