Regarding the lack of updating to something like DirectXMath, it is mostly because I don't do lots of CPU math in the engine. There are some matrix multiplications, but not really anything that could take advantage of heavy duty SIMD operations. Because of churn in the math libraries over the past few years (D3DX, XNAMath, DirectXMath, etc...) it has been a practical choice for me to stick with the CPU based classes. My development time seems to be much lower than it has traditionally been, so I have to pick my battles wisely
Thanks for the kind words about the engine - it is a labor of love, and it is nice to hear your feedback on it!
