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  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 to build mobile applications, and client-side javascript for their Appleseed components, as well as social networking interop.  This version also will have major refactoring of the database tables, and some new features such as Photos.

2. I've redesigning the main Appleseed website ( 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.
