A new version of Athene has been released this week for Windows and Linux. New features include an installation standard for package distribution, a fast menu system and pkzip compression is now a supported standard. The DML interpreter included with Athene now works for stand-alone development, so you can write DML programs that will run without the Athene desktop. The Internet plug-in for DML is also in development following this release, so that DML apps can be embedded in web pages. A complete change-log is available. OSNews hosted an interview with Rocklyte a few months ago.
