Good questions Wingnut and I am glad you posted it. I know about a few things that could be done but then some are currently not in my hands. Either someone else sits on it, or others have decided to not include their work to the CX Github repo but instead into their own repo. Which is all fine, after all it is just a hobby, or? But it doesn't help the big picture.
Dawlane has worked on TED to make it more compatible to recent versions of QT which I am super thankful for.
But he wanted to update the build scripts and to my knowledge that part is still a WIP. So I have not included his work into the CX repo.
Someone else mentioned additions to the Ads stuff in CX but released it on their own repository, 'cause he would like to get some financial recuperation for his work.
Philipp got permittion from our company a while ago to include the Metalangle stuff for IOS which we worked on there. Also some bug fixes. He mentioned several times that he is working on new docs and a VSCode plugin with a corresponding language server. But if that ever will come, or when, I don't know.
I know that the ads and IAPs modules need an overhaul. In general the mobile part of CX. It feels like Google is changing their platform on a weekly basis. Then our IDE or a VSCode integration needs to be worked on. Right now TED looks crappy on Macos with retina displays. Better tutorials for even more advanced stuff needs to worked on. Imho more game dev related modules need to be included. Some basic tools would be great to support that. The website needs a new landing page, And so on, and so on. I would also need to buy a new mac to see if CX builds on the latest platform.
In general a lot of work and also some financial investment for how many users? Right now just a handful people post regulary here. And even with them it looks like there is not much usage of CX in general. Or these people don't want to share what they are working on. Please don't get me wrong, there is no obligation for nothing. For me, for you, for noone. It is just a hobby. I am NOT looking for money and this isn't a rant, just what I have observed over the last year, while sitting on the side lines so to speak.
If someone else say "CX dev looks to be dead"
, I totally agree. I couldn't blame anyone if they would move on.
Anyway, what is YOUR and OTHERS wishlist for this year for CX? I hope you want say "I want UE5 kinda graphics".
