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!
