Did you have specific areas for improvement in mind?  I have a short
list of minor bugs which I'm working on, but mainly it just needs more
thorough testing on a wide range of platforms.

I'll probably grab a copy of xapobjs and the ascii board patch this
weekend and start looking them over.  If Patrick wants to take care of
the object side of things I'm not going to get in his way ;)

I think putting Oasis in stock 3.1 would be the way to go.
Menu-driven ease of use is much closer to the spirit of the current
circle community.

The last version of obuild had an experimental menu-driven room editor
that was just a front-end for the command-line interface.  It had a
few features that in my opinion gave the best of both worlds.  I had
plans to rewrite it to be more coder-friendly and to extend it to the
other editors, but as far as I know nobody ever used it.
