OpenDCL at Bricsys Developer Conference

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

I will be giving a short presentation about OpenDCL to developers at the Bricsys 2010 Conference in Belgium on June 8th and 9th. If you’re a developer already using OpenDCL with Bricscad (especially if you’ll be at the conference), please contact me privately to discuss the possibility of showcasing your application’s use of OpenDCL during my presentation.

OpenDCL 5.1 Released

Sunday, August 23rd, 2009

OpenDCL 5.1, with support for AutoCAD 2010, is now released. Work is already started on OpenDCL 6.0, with support for Bricscad one of the initial goals.

OpenDCL 5.0 Released

Thursday, March 19th, 2009

OpenDCL 5.0, the GUI development platform for AutoLISP programmers, was released today. OpenDCL 5 is the culmination of almost two years of development work since the release of OpenDCL 4.0 on July 30, 2007.

The major goals for OpenDCL 5 included a restructuring of the source code to support localization, completely rewritten documentation, and completion of the work started in OpenDCL 4 to clean up and modularize the code. These goals have been met, and OpenDCL 5.0 is now completely localized for both English and German languages, with Spanish, French, Russian, and Chinese language versions partially localized.

OpenDCL users reported over 200 bugs and submitted almost 50 feature requests since OpenDCL 4 was released. All but a small handful of the reported bugs were fixed, and almost half of the feature requests were implemented in OpenDCL 5. The result is a very stable, well tested, and feature rich upgrade with a promising future.

OpenDCL 5.1 is already in the pipeline, with support for AutoCAD 2010 planned for availability soon after AutoCAD 2010 ships. Beyond OpenDCL 5.1, the next major goals are support for Bricscad and the addition of support for third party .NET controls.

OpenDCL Help File Updated

Monday, February 23rd, 2009

The help file link on this web site now uses the recently completed OpenDCL 5 documentation. Note also the links at the top to translate the help file via Google’s automatic language translation tools.

You can also find a fully translated version of the help files into German HERE. The German version was translated by Fred Tomke, it’s not the Google automatic translation.
