X39 released an updated version of the ObjectOrientedScripting on the BI forums.

    Quote :
    What is ObjectOrientedScripting (OOS)?
    OOS is a new script language that will be translated to native SQF meaning that it is 100% compatible with SQF.
    It makes it possible to develop modifications in an ObjectOriented way (thats why it is callen ObjectOrientedScripting ... ok i admit ... that was too obvious :P)

    Why would we want to stop using SQF?
    well ... its a quite complex thematic where most of it is personal choice thus i cant rly help you with this questions
    there is just one thing i can tell you:
    ObjectOriented Programming (in this case Scripting) has the benefit that youre (in theory) faster in developing scripts
    for some comparison, please read this.

    • Compiler: changed block native code
    • Compiler: Added "native(<instructions>)" specially for expressions
    • Compiler: Added SQF Call instruction
    • Compiler: Added missing detection for unsigned integer/double values in VALUE

    ArmA-Banlist is a community minded banlist which collects bans from registered and validated servers.
    Thereby is a difference between Hackers / Bugusers or regular bans.
    The bans caused by Hacking / Bugusing are avenged by a global ban in this list.

        - Added whitelist feature
