Re: Getting started with beagle

Thanks for all the responses. I used Enrico's project files for
XDevelop to open the solution in Monodevelop. XDevelop doesn't look
bad, but it eats away 700+ MB memory when it's running which is a
problem since that's almost twice the amount of memory in my pc. The
other problem is the $500 license fee.

I've never been too keen on any IDEs build system, but I'll look into
the option of making the source tree playing better with Monodevelop.

Other that the TODO list, is there any filters/backends in need of attension?
