Title: April 2020
Post by: Malkom on April 30, 2020, 09:10:03 AM
Here is a brief progress report on HN5 development for the month of April 2020.

 
LOAD PROJECT
 Parsing of an HN v2,3,4 project file is over 95% done-
  - creation of nearly all objects.
  - loading code.
  - code tables.
  - still needs some data decompression.


RUNTIME ENGINE
 Filled in more functions relevant to Project Loading.


CARD CREATOR WINDOW
 Creation of some controls for Project Loading.


COMPILER
 Filled in more pass 3 compiler functionality.


PLATFORMS
 HN5 will run on multiple platforms:- Windows, OS X, Linux Ubuntu etc, Raspberry Pi.
 HN5 will not create cross platform binaries as earlier version of HN(v1 to 4) did.
 Instead, HN5 Creator will build a universal stack that will be runnable on any platform having a HN5 Player.
 To users of the stack it will seamlessly appear to be an app, just like Java apps appear to be.
