It's been a while since the last update, here's what I've been doing. The December goal is still in reach, although it may mean cutting back on a few features.

I've been spending a ton of time refactoring a lot of code in preparation for porting. I was surprised by how long this took, since it's mostly just rearranging. The Flash dependent stuff is now 95% isolated from the rest of the code. I also moved as much code as possible into the library, for reuse in other projects:

* The flash platform code is 120k
* The rest of the library is 1260k
* The Jetpack-specific code is 1250k

I created a GUI definition & skinning system, separating layout from content, to make GUI creation less of a hassle. I have the level browser left to convert, then I'll create the GUI for moving platforms, etc.

Once that's done, I'll get on all the new bugs and do a final release before porting, or attempted porting.

I am cool with it either way. Or both, if people prefer. I liked the email I received when the blog status update happened. I need to subscribe to this forum, so I can see the updates here as well (via email?!) I just subscribed, so hopefully I will receive emails from your posts in this forum. :) I guess I'm non-partial to either option chosen. (Doesn't help much, I know.)

Interesting to hear some news! I think it is a very nice move to port the code in order to make this project future proof!
Please give us some more updates on the progress, we are waiting for it.

My house flooded, 2-3 inches of water in the whole house. So I've been out of action for a week. I'm working on the laptop now, hoping I can get my main workstation up again soon!

Damn, you really aren't on a streak of luck, are you. :\ I hope that everything works out for you!
