We're not really good with roadmaps, we are people of technology.
What I can tell is that, at the time of writing, we are definitely Alpha, but we have already have awesome value in the Colony project (not to mention production deployments).
Most things are already working as we envisioned them, and for the rest we have concrete ideas on how to make them a reality.
We have worked a lot these last couple of years to deliver on the vision of easy modularity and viral distribution, but still we have not managed to lock down a specific version.
Our main goal for the project, right now, is to go from having only one development branch, always in flux, to also having a stable branch with a well defined version and feature sets.
So, 2011 is going to be the year of 1.0.0.
We are going to determine the list of features to expect from the version and we're going to lock it down to release it on schedule.
Current global goals include: simplification, bug fixing and some feature development.
Further down the road we will revisit the Colony Distributed project, and work out the main plugins that need to be built.
We will also be working on improving support for the data layer. Introducing adapters for NoSQL engines for the first time.
We know some places we want to get to, but that doesn't make it a map.
Let me know how you feel about this!
