Just a note on the Athena Orbiter;

The Orbiter itself is written 100% in HTML5 so it is compatible with any modern HTML5 compliant browser. The demo in the video uses the Safari browser on an iPad - but importantly this could be an Android Phone or tablet or indeed a Laptop/PC running Chrome, Safari etc. One of the big wins we get from writing the Orbiter in HTML5 is immediate portability to any device on any OS/Platform.

We have also written new code that provides an abstracted two way interface between the internal Dianemo systems data structures. This UI Layer code provides the glue between the Athena UI and the legacy Dianemo DCErouter style code etc.

All the best

Andy

Am I right to assume that only Dianemo users can apply?!

Yes you are - as mentioned in the linked post.

Currently builds of Athena rely on too many Dianemo specific features and technologies.

All the best

Hi all,

Just a quick update re getting involved in testing the Athena Orbietr & UI Layer;

Some people have asked how much time we will expect you to commit to testing etc and how frequently code updates/drops will happen. While we'd like as much feedback on Athena as possible we realise that everyones time is valuable and so we are happy for you to commit as much time as you are comfortable with to using/testing Athena. The minimum commitment from you is that you simply volunteer and get involved - beyond that whatever time you have to using/testing/reporting bugs will be very gratefully received by us.

As to how often updates/code drops will happen - we expect to deliver weekly updates to Athena during the alpha testing period.

Any more questions  re Athena alpha testing - please post them here.

All the best


Andy
