Geeklog A lot of people want to know when more bug squashing is going to happen, when the installer will be improved and what's in the pipeline for Geeklog. Well, if you are wondering the same thing, you will want to read this. First, let me say Geeklog has reached a milestone. I has a real development team. Not just some lone renegade coding a bunch of buggy features ;-) With this new help, we have one immediate need. Make 1.3.2 very stable. That means squashing some annoying bugs and getting the installer to work for most people including those of you on hosted environments. We are tackling these issues as we speak and hope to have 1.3.2 out later this week or during the weekend.

Now for 1.4. Geeklog 1.4 will be the infamous re-write we have talked about. Now, before you flame me for wasting time reimplementing things, keep in mind that we plan to use as much of our existing code as possible. However, we feel Geeklog is drastic need of a database redesign to allow for greater flexibility and we need to architect Geeklog to handle high traffic sites yet stll make it easy enough for the Geeklog hobbyist to enjoy.

We will be supporting the Geeklog 1.3.x tree in parallel with the rewrite so yes, you can expect more bugfixes and minor feature enhancements to 1.3.x while we all work on 1.4. I know we all have a laundry list of things that Geeklog 1.4 should do that either 1.3.x doesn't do or does poorly. Also, there are some things Geeklog does well that we will want to make sure follows us through the rewrite. Here is your chance to tell us, the developers, what you want. We will actually compile this list over the next couple weeks and start in on the high level analysis and design. We will then propose the new design to you all complete with a data model and pretty pictures of the various components that will make up Geeklog 1.4.

So, what are you waiting for? Post a comment and tell us what you want to see in 1.4.
