The Appleseed Project
Today, we've released the latest version of the Appleseed social networking software. If you're already a beta tester, you'll be familiar with the new features, but if you have your own Appleseed node, be sure to upgrade to 0.7.8.
This new version has status updates, news feeds, and the addition of a profile "Page" (just like Facebook has "Walls") for posting content. A whole ton of infrastructure work comes with this, too, setting up the future for re-factored photos, journals, options, search, and more.
We have a cool new visual roadmap of the features available and upcoming in Appleseed, including the "Glass Elevator" features, which are a long-term wish list for the future of Appleseed. All feedback is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to everyone who's donated, but we're still at only $1,757 out of our goal of $10,000 with 79 days to go. If you can help out in any way, I can guarantee every little bit helps push Appleseed towards a 1.0 release.
I was given the incredible opportunity to present at FSCONS 2010 in Gothenburg, Sweden this past weekend, and as soon as I can, I'll post the video of talk to the website. A big thank you to everyone who donated to help me get out there, and I can't thank the organizers enough for putting on a fantastic conference. The opportunity, and the conversations and ideas that came out of it, were all invaluable.
