Habari Developer Release?

In January, I noted that a group was forming to create Habari, a blogging platform that was supposed to be forward looking, and now, over three months later, we still haven’t seen a developer release of Habari in the wild, but that might be changing soon with posts on the newsgroup saying that April 1st might just be the day.

I know it seems like an odd day to release anything, but like it was pointed out in the recent conversations, April 1st was the release of Google’s Gmail, and look how well that has done.

I am still hesitant that they will make their April 1st tentative date, as the banter on the newsgroups has greatly diminished over the last month or so. While I would like to think this is because they are getting close to a release, it is just as likely that many of the secondary names that had attached themselves to the project have run out of steam, and thus dropped out.

Here is hoping for Habari.

    We haven’t run out of steam! As an all-volunteer operation, we sometimes suffer setbacks from the intrusion of Real Life(tm).

    We very much want to get a release out for folks to test; but we want them to be pleased with that release! A few things are still unimplemented that present real barriers to adoption. I’m sure we’ll get these things underway soon.

    Feel free to stop by #habari on irc.freenode.net to participate, or just to make sure we’re all still awake. ;)

    True, that danged Real Life.

    The real gauge of how things are progressing is to check out the commit log for the project. We’ve also added several people to the project over that time, people who have been helping out in tangible ways. There’s still plenty of room for more!

    We discuss the project on IRC daily, and there is enough traffic on the issue tracker that just keeping up with those can be enough to make the mailing list a second-thought. :)

    We’re still chugging, count on it.

    Looking forward to the release, and I hope to cover it constantly as it evolves into a full release.
