Riven X 0.9.8 is now available. It addresses the missing sound effects and music issue in 0.9.7.
I’ve finished pushed out Riven X 0.9.7 a few days ago. It fixes a large number of bugs and includes over a year of, admittedly sparse, development. In particular, it fixes the QuickTime version check issues people have reported on recent versions of Snow Leopard.
As far as finishing Riven X, here is my general plan. First, I’ve dropped support for Tiger and Leopard. Apple is about to release 10.7 “Lion”, and I really don’t have the resources or time to support these older versions, not to mention all the bugs they have in their graphics drivers and other frameworks that will never be fixed. Focusing on current OS and current OS – 1 is the right thing to do for a hobby project.
Secondly, and I am serious, I am giving myself one year to finish the project (starting July 2011). Hopefully I’ll need a lot less, but if I’m not done after that I’ll declare the project dead (as far as I am concerned). I will be making a definitive list of issues I want to address for 1.0 and will share it with you when done.
Until then, enjoy the new release.
