It only took two guys two years...
« on November 1st, 2012, 06:27 PM »
...And 2 months, and 2 days.
Okay, maybe not 2 days, more like 6, but apart from Pete and I, you weren't there to count in the beginning, were you? ;)

Just in case you aren't aware yet, I finally managed to put the finishing touches to a 'usable' version of Wedge, and released it early this morning to early beta testers.

In order to download it, you'll have to request access in the relevant topic, but since this is still a private alpha, we're going to be giving access mostly to those of you who've been following us for some time (and posting along), anyone who seems serious about Wedge and testing it.

Our plans are to release a public alpha before the end of the year (well, just in case the Incas were right). We're going to try and keep Wedge in frozen mode, so we won't be adding any new (major) features, although we do have a few outstanding features (or bug fixes) which we plan to ship before we go public. And who knows, maybe we'll have a good week at some point and will even be able to go gold before the end of the year...? Naah, can't be.

I have to write code to export our forum from Drupal Advanced Forum to SMF or Wedge.
Any reason for that, BTW?
I may not understand what you mean, but the reason is I have a forum built in drupal and it has grown too big for it to manage.
We are aiming toward a SMF/wedge + wordpress platform, a forum + CMS solution: drupal is good, but in a shared hosting it gets too slow and it's not easy too use.

There are no migration paths from Drupal Advanced Forum to anyother forum software, so it would have value for wedge to be that one.

I would strongly suggest not using WP with Wedge. The two will not play nicely and in all honesty there will end up being little reason to have WP when Wedge will be able to cover the bases (and do it *much* more efficiently)

Hi guys. Sorry if my English is weak. And I'm sorry if I write the wrong place.

My question is that in Hungary on the SMF support system. I really like the Wedge. I wonder how I could use it on aa my own page?

Testing can be made? Translated into Hungarian ...

And another question ...

When can we expect public release?

When you read the topics around on that very subject, like the one telling you it'll be done when it's done. Still so much to do.

You can request access in the proper thread like everyone else.

I would not recommend translation at this time. Given how much change is shortly to be introduced, it would be a bad move.

This is where you need to ask? Topic or privately?

If you can't find it - it's a public topic - then you have absolutely no business doing testing. We do expect users to show a certain amount of initiative, experience and energy, and I'm just not seeing that so far.

You two are really showing some true dedication.  I am looking forward to the first public release.  Congratulations !

Technically, he's not wrong... It's just that I'm not much into developing a thesis around development, if you will. I'm more of an action guy (well, a bit less these days...), and I'll centralize all of my development history into one place -- the changelog, i.e. also the New Revs topic, where I post all of my new commits.

I'm planning to write a blog entry on Pete's departure, and possibly a tentative roadmap (which I believe John just requested of me ;)), and also post something on our (well, my..?) Facebook page, but... Really, I'm a bit overwhelmed. Even when I don't seem to be doing a lot on Wedge, I'm still doing stuff, trying to figure out what I need to do, and also killing real-life bugs. (Sometimes, even literally :P)

I also expected at least one reply from both you and Dragooon...
