GEF3D Todos

Incubation Phase

Todo list

This todo list organizes some feature requests, in order to get an overview of what to do and to get an impression of future versions of GEF3D.

This list is also used

  • to prioritize new features (very near future, near future, no so near future, far future)
  • to estimate effort (low (<5 days), medium (5-10 days), high (>10 days), research (>30 days, results unclear))

A full list with all enhancement requests can be retrieved from bugzilla.

Help wanted: If you read this and if you want to have fun with cool 3D graphics, you would probably be an ideal candidate for helping us! Just contact us via mail or newsgroup, see GEF3D Website for contact information!
