SedVi is currently still under development. First a reference prototype version is being developed using Python. The Python prototype version of SedVi will be released once it is feature stable. From that moment an optimized stand-alone version of SedVi will be created using a restricted subset of C++. This will become the main release.

An unstable development version of SedVi can be checked out from the subversion server of SourceForge using the following command:

svn co sedvi

Disclaimer: The development version may not conform to the specifications. Command line and script syntax may still be subject to change. No warranty is provided, whatsoever.
