I've created a new DA account for resources (scripts and plugins) for the new Java port of Apophysis. It is Apophysis-J. This is in anticipation of a lot of Apple and Linux users that may only create Java versions of their scripts and plugins. Since these resources won't work in regular Apo, I wanted a separate place for them. In the long run, I think it is going to be very important from a support nightmare standpoint for Apo artists to have a separate place to post the Java resources so that users of the regular program don't try to install them and run them. I know I don't want the headache of handling all the support questions of people downloading the Java version of one of my scripts from my current account and then asking why it won't open/run in their version of Apo.
I'm calling on all my Apo watchers (over 175 of you) to help me out here. If you have a lot of watchers yourself, can you add a link to the Apophysis-J page with your links (if you have a section for links) and possibly include a mention to it in your next journal or something so that your "watchers" would have notice of it? If you have scripts or plugins of your own, could you consider converting them into Java (the Apo-J program will do about 95-100% of the script conversion for you automatically) and drop me a note on the Apophysis-J account so that I can post them there? And if you are really creative, I could really use an avatar for the Apophysis-J account. If you know of any artsy types that have been in the Mac world and not had access to Apo before now, can you mention the new resource to them? I'd appreciate it.

im co0nfused? u are the creator of this new apoph version?
No. Jean-Francois Bouzereau is the author. I do plan on creating versions of a lot of the scripts that I have written or collected for it though. And I didn't want to post them here with my "normal" scripts because that would confuse a lot of people. So, I created a new account where I will post my j-scripts (for lack of any better description) as well as any news that relates to the new version. This version has been discussed to some degree on the Apo mailing list, but since so many people are not members of the list, I thought there needed to be a spot to discuss it on DA.
