Priority Issues

  • Everything in the Zelda milestone is considered a blocker for the next release - #5314
  • The middleware refactor issue has a full list of all the middleware that needs to be split. Currently authenticate.js is the biggest priority in the list - #5286


  • An issue was created detailing everything that we would like to get done for the upcoming Ghost 0.7 release! - #5503
  • With the Ghost 0.7 release, the plan is to make the Ghost API public. For this release, it will be read-only. This allows the get helper and ajax in a theme to work. After this release, extending the API's functionality will be looked into.

What is this?

We hold a public development meeting pretty much every Tuesday at 5:30pm London time in the #ghost channel on Ghost's slack. 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 7th July, 5:30pm London time.
