New GPG key

due to some synchronization problems between my desktop and laptop, unfortunately I've lost my GPG secret key. I was planning to renew my key after the SHA issues, but this way I can't neither revoke the old key nor sign the new key. So I please anybody having my pubkey to delete it:
gpg --delete-key C29A9371

I've uploaded my new key as usual so you can get it:
gpg --keyserver --recv-keys D2C27B6B

Spadi source code

after I've written really a few docs, and cleaned up some stuff, I've published the code of both Spadi and Corraza on gitorious here. In the while, I've added support for floors and closeable views.
Help... help is needed.

Stay tuned.

Constructing a free ArchiCAD alternative

together a couple of university mates we talked about a possible free (as in freedom) ArchiCAD alternative. There are several free CAD out there but none is free for architects/engineers. The project is too big and ambitious, but I wanted to give OpenGL a shot with this excuse to learn something new.

I've started two projects:
  • Corraza, the OpenGL framework for editing 3d objects and exporting the scene graph to ray tracing software... think about a very very very minimal blender but as library
  • Spadi, the GTK+ application that runs on top of Corraza

You can find a video here to see what it can do now, after a week of development.
There's no code published at the moment, contact me if you would like to join the development.

Stay tuned.
