Good news about the upcoming Ca3DE World Editor "CaWE". CaWE is based on the former editor "Tread 3D, version 2.4f" by Joe Riedel and Nick Randal, who released their project under very liberal license.

The conversion from MFC (Windows only) to wxWidgets (cross-platform GUI library) is progressing continuously, and yesterday night I managed for the first time to get all CaWE 3D rendering done by the also new Ca3DE Material System. Moreover, John S., who contributes to the development, reported first success in bezier patches support for CaWE recently.

However, please don't expect a public release of CaWE soon. There is still a huge amount of work to be done, and quasi none of the above features is already complete or finished. For example, the 3D rendering does not yet work satisfactorily.
Nonetheless, we are encouraged by the recent advancements to continue our work full-steam ahead, and hope to be able to finish CaWE before the next demo release. :D
