WIPUP 11.11.11 released!

WIPUP.org is an open-source web application built for one reason: to show the world what you’re working on.

If you’re impatient, click here to check out the fresh WIPUP.org.

I’m very happy to announce version 11.11.11 being released today. It’s the first non-alpha/beta release, which means that I’m confident that it does what it’s meant to do, and so it’s ripe for the public to use it.

This release’s splash image is created courtesy of Erik Kylen from Blackmaze.

For those who are interested, you can read the release notes here which describe all the new stuff in this release.

I’m very curious to see where WIPUP goes to from here. Being the first non-testing release, it satisfies all of my personal needs for the system. There really isn’t anything else it needs to do. The only ones I can think of is the ability to mark projects as complete, or to download archives of projects, but both of those aren’t necessities.

It’s really been a joy developing WIPUP. I hope other people enjoy using it just as much as I do.

Enjoy the update, and I’m off for the day :)

A great version number, Dion. :)

I haven’t been updating a lot lately. Please do motivate me to do some updates to the 2D game I’ve been putting on the back burner for some time now. :P

Aww, hari, I was keeping an eye on your game. Surely the WIPUP update is motivation :)

Isn’t it the holidays coming up? That means that it’s time to do all those stuff you’ve been procrastinating all year long!

Dion, yes, holidays are coming up, but I have two important examinations coming up soon. Both relate to my profession, since I’m now fully qualified. One is the Bar Council of India exam which is mandatory for all law graduates wishing to practice as advocates. The other is a patent agent exam which will allow me to file patents on behalf of clients. So you see, I have more studying even after passing out of law school. :(

And one issue about the game development is that I need to keep working on the art all the time and sometimes I lack the motivation. I also feel that using pre-existing sprites defeats the point anyway, since I want to be creative. Yet another reason was that I feel a bit tired mentally to take on a big project at the moment.

… and then if you want to practice internationally, you’ve got even more to do!

Pity it’s the same with my profession, I have to sit through 5 hours of university, then later if I want to have hope to not just live as a CAD monkey I shall have to take a qualifications exam too.

Be happy and I’m sure you’ll enjoy plowing through your day and find a little extra time to spend it doing what you love!

Yes, Dion. I will. I think after these qualifying exams I will be a lot more relaxed. I think mental relaxation is the key to creative productivity.
