Public Dev Meeting 14th October

pulse

We've now fixed and merged the majority of the UI issues that have been niggling us since releasing 0.5.2. We have just a couple of issue marked as blockers, and hope to get those resolved in the next couple of days so that we can cut the next release.

There are currently open PRs which add autosave and the majority of the work for adding structured data (open graph, twitter and other meta data) is also done, so we hope to wrap these up and get them into the release.

During the meeting we also discussed pushing forward the new tag management interface, as well as starting to plan adding post revisions. Adding post revisions is largely an exercise in database design, but also I hope we'll be able to simplify the current process for creating new data versions in Ghost (i.e. adding data migrations) by simplifying the importer and exporter.

One last note from the meeting - our tests are experiencing regular but random failures (again) which is really quite frustrating when we're trying to build out new features. Therefore there are major kudos (and potential doughnuts) for whoever submits a fix for #4277 Travis timeouts during integration tests!!!

The full logs of the meeting are available from Slimer, our IRC bot (who is also on GitHub by the way!).

What is this?

We hold a public development meeting pretty much every Tuesday at 5:30pm London time in the #ghost channel on freenode. In this meeting we discuss progress, important issues, and what is and isn't on the Roadmap. It's a chance for everyone to get involved and have their say about where Ghost goes next.

Hope to see you at next week's meeting: Tuesday 21st October, 5:30pm London time.
