Sounds like some wishful thinking. :)

I am working on the update, but I'm not yet ready to announce a date.

THe next update will probably be mostly UI update.

Also Dan, is there no way to give an "ESTIMATE"? =]

Like between the months of Blah and jaga? =P

This would require .NET 4 to run the next update

Dan said it the next version does need Net.4 if it has MultiCore Processing

The next release of Universe Sandbox will not need .NET 4 (especially since .NET 4 hasn't been released yet).

The multi-core release won't be until later this year at the earliest. This version will need .NET 4.

I'll post a "sneek preview" screenshot of the new UI in the next week or so.

I'm really excited about it and I look forward to sharing this with everyone.

No.

(I don't know of any examples of normal programs not being able to run on a multi-core processor.)


what happens if i have no multicore processing and i upgrade to .net 4.

Short Answer

You won't be able to tell any difference.


Long Answer

.NET 4 simply allows the developer to add multi-core support.

Here's an example of how it works:

If the program is looping through each planet/body and calculating the forces on each it might look like this:

Code: [Select]
For each Body
  Calculate the forces on the Body
Next Body

If you had 4 bodies (Earth, Moon, Jupiter, Sun) the program would take 4 steps to complete this:

Step 1 - Calculate the forces on Earth
Step 2 - Calculate the forces on Moon
Step 3 - Calculate the forces on Jupiter
Step 4 - Calculate the forces on Sun

The awesome advantage of .NET 4 is that the developer (me) can easily take the 4 steps and spread the tasks across as many processors as you have.


If you have 2 processors it would be able to process 2 steps at once:

Processor 1
Step 1 - Calculate the forces on Earth
Step 2 - Calculate the forces on Jupiter

Processor 2
Step 1 - Calculate the forces on Moon
Step 2 - Calculate the forces on Sun


If you had 4 processors (and 4 tasks) it could calculate all the forces simultaneously.

Processor 1
Step 1 - Calculate the forces on Earth

Processor 2
Step 1 - Calculate the forces on Jupiter

Processor 3
Step 1 - Calculate the forces on Moon

Processor 4
Step 1 - Calculate the forces on Sun


And if you only have a single processor it will just step through each body on the single processor taking 4 steps.

Universe Sandbox is written in a managed .NET language (aka C#).
http://www.microsoft.com/exPress/

It uses the Truevision3D engine (a wrapper for Direct X) for graphics.
http://www.truevision3d.com/

And the nUI interface library.

I'll post a screenshot of the new simulation panel later this week.
