Regarding these changes, major updates to Mote will be deferred to sometime during, or after Fall of this year. Depending on whether or not new issues are found with Mote, there may be few or no releases till then. So, if things seem quiet, worry not as we have a lot more in store. There will be other things for everyone to focus on, soon enough, and we hope for your support, when the time comes.
- A user requested for a modulo function. Since we were in there, we went ahead and created a Math group in the API, exposing most of Java's Math package (see wiki for the list). Convention follows previous groups, functions start with the "math." prefix, for easier recall and lookup on the macro editor e.g. math.mod(). These do not replace the existing implementations in the RPTools' parser for MapToolScript. Unlike the previous function groups, we did not remove their MapTool counterparts, so you can use whatever is convenient for you. The Math package will be expanded in the future to include statistical math functions. One of the reasons for its creation is it will be included in the Mote-X API, which does not use the RPTools parser.
- Wiki is partially updated with the list of "new" functions, for reference. Since these are math functions, they're easy enough to use. The # of arguments range from 0 - 2, and the editor auto-completion more than suffices to explain things further. We'll come around to completing the wiki, when time allows.
