Well, another year gone...

So how was 2007 for U++:

* New memory allocator and new String implementation made U++ string processing and string maps even faster than before. Moreover, new allocator is much more multithreading friendly.

* We have now a nice unified drag and drop support

* New DateTimeCtrl and DropGrid widgets

* "CoWork" class to support multithreaded programming

* Much improved visual appearance in Win Vista and Linux (second one is still in progress now).

A lot of minor improvements and fixes was done too, in long and painful process of U++ maturing.

U++ was downloaded 43000 times (38800 in 2007) and number of U++ forum members almost doubled (489 vs 250).

What we plan for the next year:

- first, let us make "major" release. Almost all issues needed for the 2008 release now seem to be resolved, I believe you can expect it soon.

- then we hope to focus on TheIDE this year a little bit more, improving the C++ parser and then doing everything planned with it.

- of course, if possible, we should also finish two major shortcomings of U++ library: Dockable bars and "fine grain" software rendering.

Thanks to everybody involved.

I wish you Happy New Year 2008 and lot of fun with U++, programming, computers, friends, relatives, life and universe!

luzr, do I understand right, this new CoWork class is something like ConveyorThread class I presented some time ago, or it is something completely different? Please tell what`s new and good in this CoWork class?

It`s very important for me as I`m using multithreading extensively.

AFAIK not, it tries to solve different problem.

It certainly is not about using multithreading, rather about using multicore.... Smile
