NPS codename Obsidian, Milestone 1, was released today. The Milestone 1 release (version 3.0.15, build 253) is a fairly significant step in the history of NPS, as this is the first build from the Obsidian codebase to be released to the public. The Obsidian codebase is written from scratch using VB.NET (VB 2008), and does not contain any code from the RatTamer-Lagoon codebase (which is written in VB6).
The user interface in Milestone 1 is more or less functional, and a few tools (specifically the Pencil and Hand) work. It's not much, but the work that is completed in Milestone 1 sets the stage for the future. Expect to see the functionality in Milestone 1 improved and expanded on in future builds.
You can download NPS codename Obsidian, Milestone 1 from the NPS download page.
