    55[[Image(canabis_dev_screen1.jpg, width=134, align=right)]]Welcome to the temporary home of Canabis - the Open Source Canasta card-game for OS/2 Warp (including [http://www.ecomstation.com/ 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 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canasta 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.

    7 It is developed entirely in [http://www.openwatcom.org/ Open Watcom] FORTRAN/77 using the [http://svn.netlabs.org/fortrantk 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 [http://vyperhelp.netlabs.org/ VyperHelp]) as well as on-the-fly in-game help in the status bar.
