I’ve been working deep in the basement of Tinderbox, remodeling the structure for Tinderbox 6. That’s still a long ways off — we’ve just finished Tinderbox 5.11, and we’ve got some interesting plans for Tinderbox 5.12, and there’s some cool iPad stuff on the way.

But Tinderbox 6 is really beginning to take shape.

Right now, though, a lot of the work involves things like class SRect (which does all sorts of things with rectangles) and class Valuable (which abstracts attribute-value lists) and class Lynx (which implements the Link Apprentice. In other words, lots of really important things that have to work right, but aren’t terribly interesting to write about.

But there’s a lot of interesting stuff coming down the pike.
