I was looking through the changelog for 1.6.1 and I'm happy to see that there is finally support for custom meta tags. I guess you guys finally caved in to popular demand. Mr. Green

As always, before I work on reimplementing the site with the latest version, I need to ask... what is next? Is there anything I should wait for? Plans for 1.7?

We're going to try and stick to a bi-annual release schedule in the future with "major" releases in April and November.

The current development version is tagged 1.6.2 but will be called 1.7.0 on release, assuming we get at least one of last year's GSoC projects into it. The code for the Postgres support has already landed in that release, but needs some more work. I'd really like to see support for the Plugin Repository make it into that release as well.

In that release, we've also finally addressed the annoying problem with the expiring CSRF tokens. Now, when you hit the 20-minute time limit, you will be asked to provide your password again and no content will be lost.

Bugs and feature requests that actually made it into the bugtracker and are addressed in the next release can be seen in the bugtracker's changelog. For a complete list, you would have to refer to the history file in our Mercurial repository.

bye, Dirk

Do you have a backlog of bugs/features to address, or could I suggest something and possibly get it added into the 1.7.0 release?

The bugtracker has a roadmap view that lists the issues that are scheduled for the upcoming release.

If there's anything already in the bugtracker that you like to see implemented, please leave a comment (still waiting for that voting feature to be implemented in Mantis :banghead:

For everything else: File a bug report or feature request. If we don't know about it, we can't fix or implement it (or evaluate whether it could be included in the next release). At this point, there's still room for some small features to be implemented.

bye, Dirk
