Strategic Primer assistive programs release, development report, and roadmap (0.4.9014-rc1)

It’s now been four months since the last snapshot release of the suite of assistive programs for players and Judges of Strategic Primer, with my only public comments about development progress being a few lines in the quarterly goals check last month. Most of my development efforts in the past months have gone into porting the suite to Ceylon, but that port has been essentially complete for several weeks now, and I’ve implemented some new features as well, so I’ve built a new “snapshot release,” or to use a new-to-this-project term, a “release candidate.” Players, please try it out and let me know of any issues you run into! You can download it from GitHub as usual. Continue reading

Strategic Primer assistive programs release, development report, and roadmap (0.4.9013)

In the weeks since the last snapshot release of the suite of assistive programs for players and Judges of Strategic Primer, there have many minor “fixes” and “cleanups,” a few “major under-the-hood” changes, a few changes that may affect players but they won’t see directly, and at most a couple actually “user-visible” changes. But it’s time for a new release. You can download the new snapshot from GitHub as usual. Continue reading

“Veni, O Clavis David”

O heir of David, you who hold his key
Upon your royal shoulder, and who rule
As with his scepter over all God’s house,
We know that none can stand against your will:
If there is any door that you wish shut,
You shut it, and it then stands shut forever,
And there is no gate, however barred,
That can be anything but open wide
When you so will and bid them lift their heads.
Come, O Lord, unto the prison’s darkness,
Where men long languish under death’s despair,
And loose their chains and lead them into life
And unto heaven’s perfect liberty.

This is a verse expansion or meditation on the fourth of the O Antiphons; the first and second poems in this project appeared two weeks ago and last week respectively, and the third on Wednesday. I hope to have the fifth tomorrow and the last two next week.

In any case, it’s time for another development report and another snapshot release, which can be downloaded from GitHub as usual. Continue reading
