Mides: What’s Going On

I have been getting killed in the reviews for the past couple of weeks.  Probably deservedly so.  I wanted to drop a brief update as to what is going on with Mides.  After exploring the concept of including a PHP interpreter to debug scripts, I have decided that at this time it isn’t practical.  There are too many problems and roadblocks to implementing it, not to mention that it is only palatable, performance wise, on the iPhone 3GS, which many people do not have at this time.

What I have decided to do is to work on additional features to improve the functionality of Mides as an IDE.  I have some code completion features I am working on, improving the performance of the documentation searches, and adding line numbers are a few of the improvements that I have brewing for the next release of Mides.

I appreciate all of the awesome feedback, and am working to implement as much of it as I can, or at least as much as my day-job will allow.
