Hi folk! So 2.5.8 is finally released, with many thanks to Derek for building the MSI for us! So what now? I’m sure you’ve all see the client strategy post here. The primary development of Spark will move at a slower pace than in the past. However it’s a fun project for me in my free time, so there will likely be more development on it “off hours” so to speak, especially when I need a break from my primary projects. Those of you who are interested in hacking on Spark, please feel free to and send patches my way! I’d love to get more involvement from the community! That said, I have a couple of primary focuses.
Find a way to build those bloody MSI files in an automatable way so we don’t run into it causing delays in the future
Evaluate the existing bug reports and try to clean things up.
Improve it’s feel/functionality under Mac OS X.
Fix things that I don’t like in my daily use of it.
I don’t have a time frame on the next release, as Spark will be developing at a slower pace than previously. But again, if you are interested in helping, please check trunk out of SVN and patch patch patch! =) I will need you to have signed a contributor agreement with Jive though. Please contact me if you are interested in helping and haven’t signed it.
Not sure I said everything I wanted to say. LOL Questions?
