Maze Wars SVG version 1.0b2 has been released. The closest thing to a functional change is the addition a partial work-around for a Firefox 3.5.x SVG rendering bug that made the eyeball on the game’s first web page render incorrectly. No code changes, other than the deletion of some old, commented-out material. No changes in game play.
Also, the beginnings of a web site for the game can now be found at http://mazewarssvg.sourceforge.net/.
And, last but certainly not least, I’ve had the pleasure of corresponding with Greg Thompson (thanks Bruce), one of the authors of the original Maze War game, and seem to have received his blessing. Nothing said was usable as an endorsement quote (darn it), but the tenor of the correspondence was entirely positive.
