Hello, everyone, I know I've been quiet about Appleseed lately, so I thought
it would be good to send an update of what I've been working on. I've been
focusing on four things for Appleseed:
0. I've set up a wiki, at wiki.appleseedproject.org. This is where
(hopefully) better documentation of the project will take place. The wiki
documentation might be sketchy in places, but it should be accurate as of
the 0.7.10 release. There's some interesting stuff on the Philosophy page
that I hope people will argue with me about.
1. Version 0.7.10. This version will set the foundation for a new Graph API
that will form the final protocol that Appleseed nodes will use to interact
(of course, Appleseed can also support multiple other protocols as well,
such as OStatus). This will also be a unified API that developers will use
components, as well as social networking interop. This version also will
have major refactoring of the database tables, and some new features such as
2. I've redesigning the main Appleseed website (
opensource.appleseedproject.org) to a nicer layout. I will also now be
doing fundraising directly through the website instead of IndieGoGo.
3. I've been working on a full framework UI/UX redesign. You can see the
mockups (as well as a preview of the main website redesign) here:
More information will be coming, but for you visual learners, this will give
you a good idea of where Appleseed is headed for a 1.0 release.
If anybody has any questions, feel free to ask, and I'll try and get to them
as soon as I can.
Lead Developer, The Appleseed Project
