FX Experience Has Gone Read-Only

I've been maintaining FX Experience for a really long time now, and I love hearing from people who enjoy my weekly links roundup. One thing I've noticed recently is that maintaining two sites (FX Experience and JonathanGiles.net) takes more time than ideal, and splits the audience up. Therefore, FX Experience will become read-only for new blog posts, but weekly posts will continue to be published on JonathanGiles.net. If you follow @FXExperience on Twitter, I suggest you also follow @JonathanGiles. This is not the end - just a consolidation of my online presence to make my life a little easier!

tl;dr: Follow me on Twitter and check for the latest news on JonathanGiles.net.

It’s been a really long time in the making, but I’m pleased to announce the final release of Scenic View 8.0.0. This release is the culmination of a huge amount of work, and whilst not perfect, is a good starting point for further discussion and refinement. The other big aspect of this release is the fact that Scenic View is now open source – yay! 🙂


Given the large number of developer preview releases there should be no surprises as to what to expect in this release – it is just bug fixing at this point. However, now that 8.0.0 is out I hope that we can accelerate the development of the project by getting more people into the code base and helping to refine, improve, and simplify it. Please, take it for a spin and be sure to file bugs over at the new bug tracker.

Finally, here’s a sneak peak of what might be coming up in a future release of Scenic View:



Go forth and download! I know the release isn’t wart-free, but I need your help to diagnose and resolve the issues. Thanks!
