Progress on the next release of Flashcard Wizard
I have just released version 1.2 of Flashcard Wizard, which makes a
few simple fixes to the 1.0 release made earlier in the fall of 2000.
I am currently busy with my studies at Columbia University's graduate
School of International and Public Affairs. However, I have a strong
continued interest in my application and am currently working on a complete
rebuild of the program in a new programming language (Before:
Supercard Now: REALBasic) which will make the application compatible
with Mac OS X, give it limited compatibility with Windows, and will
both increase speed and make a few features easier to implement. I hope
to release this as version 2.0 in the spring or summer of 2001. The
success of this project will depend in part on whether REALBasic proves
to be as stable and consistent as Supercard in the implementation of
the programs core features.
