Today we had another general progress meeting around milestone 0.5. One of the best ways to get visibility on the progress of Apps is to keep an eye on issue #1474. This issue lists open issues, those which have been completed and other useful details.
The delivery date for 0.5 (which was a placeholder) has now been set for Monday 31st March. This means that all PRs for 0.5 need to be submitted by midnight on the 31st to be considered for inclusion. If all goes to plan, this means that 0.5 will be released on the 8th of April.
The team has now delivered a large chunk of the theme section of 0.5. We have some pretty awesome features in there, and we're hopefully going to wrap up the remaining pieces in the next week or so. I'll be adding a specific write-up on that here on the dev blog very soon.
The apps section of 0.5 is also progressing well, although there is still a sizable backlog of open issues. We have reached a somewhat awkward stage of the process where there are 2 or 3 issues which are dependencies for finishing up everything else. However, by mixing theme and other work in with Apps, we're continuing to make excellent progress.
We are still looking for more contributors to take on some of the work, and have started labelling issues that would be suitable to people who are new to Ghost development with beginner. If you'd like to get involved, jump on in - if you want to chat or have any questions come join our IRC channel - #ghost on freenode.
Next week's meeting has been set aside to finalise our thoughts and decision making on the future of Ghost's admin UI - that is to determine how we are going to move forward with the admin interms of toolkit, the process for rebuilding, who, what, where when etc. If you're interested in taking part them please come along on Tuesday 25th February, 5:30 GMT.
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 weeks meeting: Tuesday 25th February, 5:30pm London time.
