What will be included at launch?

Posted by Kim December 2nd 2019, 2:09pm
I just announced a fairly aggressive goal for transitioning the site to 2.0 next week.

I wanted to say a little more in this group, since your following this group means you have a keener interest in progress than the casual observer.

What will and won't be included at launch?

AN EPIC BUTT TON of new features and upgrades are included!

But you'll notice that not everything in the Planned Features forum is marked as "complete" as of today. This will still be true at launch. I'll be continuing to work on upgrading the site well after launch - in fact, I'll ALWAYS be working on updating and upgrading it, as has been true for the last ten years. ;)

Still, as we are now approaching the point where all features that exist on 1.0 are either as-is on 2.0, or upgraded, sometimes significantly -- it feels like a logical time to make the switch. Much like when doing art, you're never truly "done" - just at some point you decide to take the plunge and release it.

Will there be bugs? Of course there will. But, there are a lot of bugs in the current version of the site, too (and 2.0 addresses a ton of those), so that part will not be so different. Transitioning will mean that updates and bug fixes can flow out to everyone again, and I know some have been waiting a full year to see reported issues/wish list items addressed. Bottom line for me is, we'll be seeing a net positive from making the switch.

And, just on a selfish note, I'm sooooooooo ready to only be maintaining one site again. ;)

Thank you SO MUCH for all of your support through this insanely intense process. I just absolutely love you all.

    Thanks, Kim, for everything, and wanting to deal with only one site is hardly selfish. Hopefully the switch goes through painlessly and you really can focus on just the one. :)
