Yeah, has been a long time since I touched the code of StupidZombie; One of the main reasons is that the program did (and still does) what I needed and there was no good reason to push it forward.
But things change, even for the undead
So this year I expect some things to happen, some more exciting than others:
- Refactoring the code base to StupidZombie is easier to compile out of the box. Yes, that is right. The code base is small but I want it to be even more easy to download and compile. Well, also it is a perfect excuse for me to learn how to use Apache Ivy on a small project
- JavaFX. Yes. StupidZombie GUI Swing based interface is ugly, TOO corporate. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping than Oracle do a proper integration with JavaFX and Swing so I can refresh a little the application
- Improvements on the Kenai.com site. I’m waiting for Oracle to move the project to Java.net, until then no news is good news
And that’s it. No huge news but rather realistic deliverable for the project. Also I promise to put more updates on this blog, it’s been really a while since I provided updates on the app.
