I was actually going to submit the details to the group, but wanted the
moderator's explicit permission to do so, and haven't heard from him yet.
The basic press release is available at
http://www.twilightminds.com/news112999a.html, if anyone is interested.

The system is being ported to Linux as I write this, and an ANSI C source
distribution (the current version uses some Win32 specific calls) will
probably be available shortly.

I'll point this out to my colleagues who are maintaining the engine. If
there are any other comments that you'd like to raise, there is a web
dicussion forum at our main site.

The Brainiac Behaviour Engine will also interface well with one of our
products in development, the Dynamic World Engine, a versatile world
simulation framework which will be exceptionally valuable in the development
of immersive MUDs. There are a few notes on this on our site, and I'll post
more details as they become available.
