It’s been quiet on the blog for a while. What personal blog doesn’t go silent once in a while? That doesn’t mean I’ve been bored, though. Quite the opposite, I have been hard at work on a number of projects, including becoming a full PhD candidate. As the title hints, I have also been making strides in Avida 3.0 development. The new API is starting to come together nicely. In an effort to bring the changes to the light, I am discussing the changes on the avida-dev list. If you are interested in the future of Avida, please come on over and join in.
