Development status at 2018-2019

Hi all.

What is the project status now? Is it completely abandoned or we can still count on some further releases in a year or two?

It is not abandoned but all official CEGUI devs are currently mostly or fully inactive. As always, this can change at any time.

We are taking in PRs and if anyone wants to pick up some development work (and maybe join the dev team, if they are serious about it) we would be happy to invite them to do so,

Glad to hear. I am still using CEGUI in my engine, so I will send PR if I develop something useful. But I have no context of 1.0 development direction so I will continue to use 0.8. If someone will start active development and needs help with some clearly defined tasks then I think I could help.

Thank you all for this project. Happy New Year :)

There is no definite path for CEGUI 1.0, it is a mix of changes that are mostly API/ABI breaking.

Nice-to-haves would be improvements of CEED, API improvements, animation improvements, SVG support (could just be about rasterisation and atlas generation using an external lib),...

Some of these have already been started in 1.0 but are incomplete.

Vulkan and D3D12 support would also be very important.
