Avatar Core 0.0.3

Avatar Core 0.0.3 is now available from the Avatar Core Project Page. The same structure of the framework remains mostly the same, though a lot of the API has changed. A lot of this is a result from the increased focus on allowing Avatar's to be able to be self-contained, without needing a library to link to. Currently, this does introduce a problem with some features of the framework (which will have to be figured out in the next release), but I think overall it's for the best.

The live demo has also been updated (and can be downloaded, with the framework, from the downloads page).

More information about this release can be found in the release notes.

Avatar Core 0.0.2 Download Update

For anyone not wanting to mess with SVN on google code, I've added a download of the demo in the downloads page that includes the demo with the full framework source code. This will give you the necessary files to compile the sample right out of the box, or at least get you the full framework source code in one download without SVN.

FYI, the demo was created with Flash CS4. However, all source code is in external .as files, so you could easily recreate the FLA files in CS3 if you have that using the AS files as document classes for their respective FLAs. You can see a live demo here.

Keep in mind its still early, and changes may yet be made to the framework resulting in changes in functionality and/or API.

Avatar Core 0.0.2 source code has been uploaded to the project on google code. More information on the changes can be found in the release notes. I'll try to get some more info on the wiki and a sample application in the downloads section a little later.

Avatar Core Design Basics

I've updated the wiki for the Avatar Core framework with the basic design of the framework. Source code is available now, but I'm already making some changes to it that I'll probably upload within the next couple of days. I hope to spend a lot more time working with this next week when I have some more free time available.
