Extempore: Extempore is a new live-coding environment which borrows a core foundation from the Impromptu environment (http://impromptu.moso.com.au). Extempore is named as a nod to the Impromptu project from which it was seeded. At this stage in the project Extempore exists as a "developers" seed project. It is in a useable state but is not regarded as stable for end-users. Binaries will be made available when the project reaches a more user friendly state. Building: See the INSTALL notes for build instructions. Current Status: Extempore is currently in a functional although unstable state. There are known stability issues that will be resolved but are not currently considered a high priority. In practice this means that Extempore is useable for personal projects but should not currently be used for live, or public performance. Extempore's support for 3rd party libraries is fully dynamic. This means that Extempore binds to dynamic libraries at runtime. There are a number of example libraries which can be found in the libs directory. Many (although not all) of these libraries require you to install a 3rd party library (.so for linux .dylib for OSX, dll for Windows). In particular there is an 'example' DSP library and a library binding Extempore to the Horde3D game engine. Although Extempore is immature it is worth mentioning that it is already being used to develop some substantial audiovisual software. Open Source - Open Platform: Extempore currently builds on OSX, Linux and Windows 7 platforms. The project is released under a BSD style licence. Community: Please jump on in - there is loads to do - even if you're not a C/C++ developer! I have started a google group called "Extempore" http://groups.google.com/group/extemporelang. Joining this group is probably your best first step in getting involved.
