    1 = Welcome to Trac 0.9.5 =
     1= Canabis =
    3 Trac is a '''minimalistic''' approach to '''web-based''' management of
    4 '''software projects'''. Its goal is to simplify effective tracking and handling of software issues, enhancements and overall progress.
     3== Information & Features ==
    6 All aspects of Trac have been designed with the single goal to
    7 '''help developers write great software''' while '''staying out of the way'''
    8 and imposing as little as possible on a team's established process and
    9 culture.
     5Welcome to the temporary home of Canabis - the Open Source Canasta card-game for OS/2 Warp (including [ eComStation]) and Windows 9x/NT. The aim is to create a full-featured and easy-to-use but still very slim and functional Canasta game. As far as I know, it is the first Open Source Canasta game ever, too. It is planned to support the [ Classic Canasta rules] and a lot of customizable rules (so it supports my [wiki:family_rules family's rules]). Currently it is single player against one computer opponent and it is unsure whether there will be some kind of multiplayer later. It aims to be as flexible as possible. You can easily install different card and language packages provided as compiled .DLL files and switch them at run-time. Also, you can customize colors, the window background and even enable primitive pseudotransparency. The whole user interface will conform the [wiki:cua Common User Access] guidelines.
     6It is developed entirely in [ Open Watcom] FORTRAN/77 using the [ FORTRAN/TK] toolkit. Therefore it is cross-platform and can be compiled for OS/2 Warp (which includes eComStation) and Windows 32-bit systems. Actually, the focus of development is on OS/2. It even supports some OS/2-specific features like basic Workplace Shell integration. Of course there will always be some issues with the user interface related to flaws in the Tcl/Tk OS/2 port which Canabis relies on. There will be a native OS/2 and Windows help (thanks to [ VyperHelp]) as well as on the fly in-game help in the status bar.
     7Canabis is licensed under the [ Open Software License v.2.1].

     9== Screenshots ==
    17 "[wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] ''yourenvdir'' initenv" created
    18 a new Trac environment, containing a default set of wiki pages and some sample
    19 data. This newly created environment also contains
    20 [wiki:TracGuide documentation] to help you get started with your project.
     11== Releases & Binaries ==
    22 You can use [wiki:TracAdmin trac-admin] to configure
    23 [ Trac] to better fit your project, especially in
    24 regard to ''components'', ''versions'' and ''milestones''.
     13There are no official releases yet, sorry. There will be one soon when Canabis becomes "playable" (there are some things still missing in the basic "artificial intelligence" level).
     15== Additional card and language packages ==
    27 TracGuide is a good place to start.
     17There are no card or language packages besides the packages included in the distribution, yet.
    29 Enjoy! [[BR]]
