Velaldin Project Looking for Testers
This summer of 2007 the Velaldin Emergence Engine and related software will undergo continued development. As such, we are currently setting up collaborative platforms such as issue trackers and discussion forums which will be used to track and aid development.

We are currently looking for individuals who are interested in testing/helping develop
official future releases of Velaldin this summer. This includes GUI testing for the upcoming Velaldin Viewer, and engine testing for the Velaldin Engine. Level of commitment is very flexible, as is the level of experience and programming knowledge required.

Development is spearheaded by Hrafn Thorri Thórisson, creator of Velaldin.
