Habari 0.4 Released

Habari is continuing to evolve and mature, but it has been a long time since we mentioned it here on Blogging Pro, and there is a reason for that, its development has been slow.

This means that they aren’t pushing forward fast enough to continue to capture my attention, which could be losing them the audience they were hoping for. I am impressed at their continued work towards creating a blogging platform that breaks down barriers between publishers and getting their content out there.

There are many significant enhancements in this version, including the addition of exciting new media management functionality, the genesis of a working permissions system, and many useful UI enhancements. Of course, there are a lot of improvements under the hood, which you can review in the release notes or in the commit log, which describes all 230 code changes since our last release.

If you haven’t heard of Habari, and you are interested, definitely check out their site, Personally, I will be waiting until they get to version 1.0 before jumping both feet forward into their project once again.

    Habari looks great and all but I agree, I’m waiting till I see a 1.0 version to really give it a go. Also, Habari has to develop faster if they want to make inroads amongst WP users. Despite an awesome looking design (IMO) they are losing momentum with slow development.

    To say that we need to develop faster to compete against WordPress (or any other tool) implies that we are in competition with those other tools. That’s not entirely the case (at least not insofar as our motivations for developing Habari.

    I think we all believe that a rich collection of complimentary tools makes for a better blogging ecosystem. We’re not looking for hegemony or dominance in the blog publishing market. We’re looking to scratch our own itches, and to advance the craft of blogging along the way. There are no timetables for either of those objectives, and to arbitrarily impose competition with other products does not a better product make.

    Thanks for keeping an eye on Habari, though! As always, if you have specific suggestions or complaints, our habari-users mailing list is the place to post them! You can help speed up Habari development by participating in the process! ;)

    As many others I also find the HabariProject exiting and am looking forward to v/1.0.

    A good read for others with the same interest could be: where Michael Heilemann is working on the dashboard / GUI for Habari – be sure to watch his Screencast which contains a great walkthrough of what to expect.
