GitHub & Issue Tracker Changes

We’ve been gradually migrating away from Google Code for a long time now — First we switched to Git and migrated our repositories to GitHub, then we moved the wiki to wiki.naev.org, and lastly downloads moved to SourceForge due to ndata’s size growing.

The only Google Code service we’ve been making use of these past few years . . . → Read More: GitHub & Issue Tracker Changes

So, afterburners

As some of you may have noticed, the last few releases have introduced changes to the afterburner outfit.

Lua API Docs Added to Naev.org

Naev’s Lua API documentation has finally been integrated as a part of naev.org, under its very own subdomain: api.naev.org.

Some may note that the documentation has been around for some time, and that’s true. In fact, the effort dates to 2008, and has been kept in sync with the code ever since. It’s historically been hosted on . . . → Read More: Lua API Docs Added to Naev.org
