Another Happy New Year

While you can say I don’t post to the blog very often, at least I do it regularly. Let me use the start of the new year to post a short update.

2010 started out with the following ambitious, professional goals:

  • Launch Deep Green 2.0
  • Launch another iPhone app
  • Launch a Mac application
  • Launch a more personal site for my free software

None of these can be ticked off completely. But it’s not far from, and many other interesting things happened in 2010.

I just managed to create a more personal blog where I’ll start talking about all the subjects that don’t strictly belong to Cocoa Stuff. That leaves us with Deep Green here for now…

Deep Green Is Thriving and Well

2010 saw the introductions of iPad and iPhone 4 with higher resolution displays. On the Deep Green forum I’ve told a little bit about the turmoil around the graphics design of the next version, so I’ll just list a few forward looking statements about the next version:

  • Version number will be 1.2
  • Graphics will be optimized for Retina and iPad displays
  • Binary will be universal
  • Release date will be in Q1/2011
  • Lite version will be discontinued

I’ll elaborate on two of the statements, universal binary and Lite discontinuation, in separate posts.

Happy New Year!

    Just found the blog and can’t tell you how much I love this app!

    As for version 1.2, I feel that it will truly look amazing on an iPad…

    Keep up the amazing work!!! :-)

    Deep Green is so *blurry* on Retina displays…

    Please update the icon and graphics!

    Thank you!

    Also, please don’t discontinue the Lite version :)

    Rudiger, I can guarantee you the graphics won’t be blurry in the next version.

    With iOS 4.0 and multitasking, the functionality of Lite and the full version is practically identical, so Lite will be developed no further, but will remain in its current state in the App Store for a while in order to support older devices and older versions of iOS.

    In order to get the full experience on newer devices with Retina displays and iPads, you’ll have to get the full version.
