Weekly Check-in #9

Published: 08/08/2019


This week, I've been working a lot on Panda's multi-touch support. The goal is to make some headway towards modifying Panda's architecture to not make the assumption of a single mouse. Since Panda is around two decades old at this point, and multi-touch hardware was not widely available during the time it was written, this is a very formidable task. I'd like to get at least of baseline level of support, but some large changes will need to be made throughout Panda's code in order to bring its pointer handling up to modern standards. In order to ensure the support I finish is at least somewhat usable, I will probably need to skip out on my stretch goals. But, that's why they're stretch goals in the first place, right?

See you next week!
