End of year update

Posted 22 December 2015, 7:18 PM

Hi all,

I'm just posting a quick end of year update on Composr v10 development.

Not much development happened over summer and autumn, as we were very bogged down rescuing some legacy projects for customers. These were outstanding commitments from much earlier in the year, before our new-work lock-down. However, those concluded and over the last few weeks I've been doing frequent big commits pushing through the remaining v10…

sounds awesome! Great news. Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!

Lots of good stuff committed to the github repo this year, v10 is going to be legendary. Here's to 2016 and the launch of Composr. Or maybe 2017 :)

If you'd like a v9 website to test the v10 upgrade process on, I can offer the newest site I'm working on, , for that. I was actually initially going to start off on v10 when it was released. However, due to the unknown release date of it and the need to begin planning the site, I decided to start working on it now.
Thanks :). We should be okay at this point actually. Upgrade is tested on v8 and v9, and I'm about to upgrade the demo system which will be another test.

One of the improvements in v10 is an ability to analyse the database for inconsistencies, so this was really helpful to confirm that all DB changes apply perfectly.

The upgrade notes were finished last night.
Awesome! Will Composr be released as a full v10 version or as a beta... or as a RC?
It will go to beta very soon, but it will be in every way complete with no known issues. The beta period is effectively a safety period, as I'm sure people will find some issues.
like me XD Okay sounds good ^^
