New snapshot has been released. I apologise for 3 weeks of delays. There have been many changes regarding property editing, all properties are editable using a LineEdit widget by default. Properties are also refreshed on the fly as you move the widgets or edit other properties. Both archives provide testing sample data with CEGUI 0.7 and CEGUI 0.8 datafiles.

Grab the source tarball or Windows standalone binaries at ... snapshot5/

haven't had much time to do more than a cursory view of it but two suggestions. Minor issues...

The program crashes if I start and new project and then quit out of it without doing anything else.

Its sort of confusing to a newcomer that the project folders and files have to be manually created and arranged before you can use CEED on them. I guess either create them automatically or put it in the readme and include a sample project.

jarwulf: Please report all issues to

I would appreciate you helping with the project file format or documentation for it. Maybe first time it should pop a window telling you that folders are "virtual" in projects?

I can't remember the exact names but CEED will complain until you have a specific set of folders created I suppose either create this minimal set or remind the user that they have to have them. I dunno how much help I can be but if you have a simple task maybe I can hack it.
