Perhaps the more important thing is that we changed the direction of our thesis from "just" implementing a game server to researching about scalability and fault tolerance of game servers at a academic level. Currently we are reading many scientific reports and books about scalability and fault tolerance and try to be as scientific as possible when we write our report. You can actually take a look at it: https://github.com/jeena/GGS-report
We still want a working Generic Game Server but it won't be a real world product but more some type of a prototype of such one where we test our hypothesis on performance, fault tolerance and scalability if we need to get our hands dirty.
To be able to test such stuff we need to write some bots which will play games via our server. And we need to write code which collects data during the games.
To get the code more stable we are trying to replace our unit tests with quickCheck tests.
Hope the project is still interesting for you who have been following it until now :-)

It was a little bit quiet here on the blog for the last two weeks, but this doesn't mean that we had vacation or something. We have actually been writing a lot and I'd like just to load up the stuff here so you can read it if you want. This are links to PDF:s
