    Just a quick note to let everyone know my new app, Carve3D is due out in the store any time now. You can carve a pumpkin in 3D, rotate it at any angle, and even project the light from the pumpkin onto the crypt behind it!

    Screenshots here: http://www.zinger-soft.com/Carve3D.html

    Now back to iSSH! It'll have tunnelled VNC capability in no time!

    Fun. I should note that two other pumpkin carving apps entered the store last night as well. Jack O' Latern, which is pretty basic in my opinion, available here: http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=292105716&mt=8

    and then an app by a fellow MacRumors Forum member joshanon also made it into the store last night as well, available here:

    I grabbed a copy of Pumpkins and it seems really polished (though limited to 2D, the well execution of it makes up for a lack of a third dimension, it in my opinion.) Kudos to Joshanon!

    Let the Halloween festivities begin!

    The graphics don't look so good on this. Poor quality pics?

    Possibly. I think it's also hard to translate everything that's going on in the 3D app into a few 2D screenshots. (By this I mean the reflections, the texture of the pumpkin, the ambient sounds, etc.) Is it the texture of the pumpkin you don't like? Too few polygons on the pumpkin itself? I'm certainly open to suggestions.

    Update: I've swapped out the images and used PNG files instead of JPG to prevent artifacts in the snap shots. Hope you like!

    I've just declared Carve3D free for the weekend. Version 1.1 should be out at any time now and that update will be included in the free promotion. Link above still applies! Thanks everyone!

    (I just made the change so as usual it may take a little while for the price to propagate through the store.)

    Was just thinking about purchasing this last night when checking your site to see status of issh.

    Well, hopefully Carve3D being free should now help settle the issue for you! :) Sorry about the delay on iSSH. The tunnelled VNC stuff is crazy and I want to make a good first impression. This isn't like the first round of updates with the ssh clients where we were still finding out legs. There are already good VNC clients out there, so I need to be on par or it just won't be worth it.
