You can watch a summery of the latest features in the video below:

This update improves the use of the engine as a regular java library. Main features are the improved API and the map editor. In general it is much easier to use the engine without the need to modify the engine's source code.
A full change list can be found below.

Future development

From now on I will focus on developing a commercial game with it. It has yet to be seen if I can further update the engine or if my improvements on the engine will stay in most parts closed source. However everyone is free to tweak it. For the game I am looking for a part time developer.
Join development now!

Got my new internet connection today. 97 Mbit/s down. 2Mbit/s up. I take that as my birthday present in advance.

I don’t like it when my room looks like a hackspace or server room.

My unannounced game will probably support turning the view by 180°.

Working on the core breaks so much. Very frustrating to see bugs popping up everywhere.

I removed the block offset because it slows down the algorithms and development and is only used in one case.

Today I try to rework parts of the clipping algorithm. Clipping per camera so they can be rotated independently.

@Jonathan_Blow I even saw some dude linking screenshots from sites like 4chan on linkedIn.
