What's the big secret with b42?
I've been waiting patiently, but now it's been days, and I NEED TO KNOW.
Thank you. That is all.
The reason no one is saying is because it may not actually make it into b42. Basically, there is a some frameworks stuff checked in that will become a feature at some point. It's like of like having a chasis for a car, but it aint worth much of anything until it has a motor, tires, steering wheel, etc. Right now, the feature is not complete (as least not as far as I know, but that may be due to documentation of HOW to use it.), and might not be for several versions. For that matter, it is possible that RL will happen and it might not make it into 1.3 at all.
Here is a hint: Average end users will use this feature without knowing it(assuming the community does their part), but developers will have tons of fun tricks to play and use this feature quite a bit, constantly playing and tweaking stuff.
Hint 2: giliath is working on this feature and he normally works on the parser, ie, things dealing with how macros and rolls and stuff are ultimately resolved. This is not much of hint since it was already stated that he was doing the work and to those that have been around a while, it's pretty obvious what area of the code he generally deals with.
Unfortunately, I can say that it is NOT targeting, which I would dearly love to have. Of course, the build has not gone out yet, so someone might submit a patch tonight to add targeting and make me a liar.
I save all my Campaign Files to DropBox. Not only can I access a campaign file from pretty much any OS that will run Maptool(Win,OSX, linux), but each file is versioned, so if something goes crazy wild, I can always roll back to a previous version of the same file.
