OK GUYS, TIME TO ADVERTISE!
« on: July 26, 2005, 09:22:40 pm »
I see there are many c++ forums out there where dev-c++ is mentioned. (Usually the posts referring to it are about a year old). But now that Codeblocks has reached Release Candidate 1, I say it's time to recruit and start promoting!

Who's with me?

(cue crickets chirping :P )

Anyway, seriously, we need some people who start spreading the word about Codeblocks, in other programming forums. We (the developers) don't have time for it, so maybe you guys can.

I thank you in advance!

In comp.soft-sys.wxwindows, this month *two* threads was started by people asking for an IDE!
I was itching to give those people a pointer over here, but held back. Now is the time then? Who's gonna do it? I'll do it gladly, provide them with a pointer to here. If some words should go along with the pointer in the posts, then I'll leave it to somebody else, somebody native-english-speaking.
Perhaps Rick will do a "ANN: Code::Blocks IDE" posting?

Names of mentioned comp.soft-sys.wxwindows threads:
"Linux IDE"
"Which IDE for wxWidgets?"

Klingon multitasking systems do not support 'time-sharing'. When a Klingon program wants to run,
it challenges the scheduler in hand-to-hand combat and owns the machine.

I think we shouldn't do that. They'll eventually talk about it when codeblocks' popularity surpasses dev's.

I posted news at Game Design PL, biggest (I suppose) Polish community portal for game programmers. 8)
Some persons immediately pointed some bugs which I'll report tomorrow (too tired now to describe it), but overall reaction seems to be nice, or even very nice. :)

Btw. please note that many forums/sites usually have threads/sections that contains links to useful resources, often including 'free C/C++ compilers/IDEs' section. It seems to be a good idea to post new useful link in such places (and it is not a spam then :P).

Dude! I've been searching for polish testers, there's some weird characters bug submitted by aarti_pl on sourceforge.
