The first preview release of Kobold2D (v1.0.0 preview 1) will be available for download on:
Tuesday, August 30th, 2011
To be able to download the Kobold2D preview version(s) you will have to be signed up to my Kobold2D / Cocos2D Newsletter:
On the release day I’ll send out an email with download instructions. Those signing up after the initial release date will receive the download instructions in the welcome email.
Initially I want to limit the number of users downloading and using Kobold2D preview versions to those who are really looking forward to it. I hope that this will improve chances of you having a good first experience and me receiving better feedback. After all, it’s the first time I’m releasing Kobold2D to the wild and I’m careful not to release it to the masses right away.
The final public version of Kobold2D will not require a signup of any kind. And it’ll be free of course. Depending on the issues reported by previewers the final version should be available around 4-8 weeks later (October).
