Dare I ask if there's a 'completed feature' list somewhere [even in rough draft form] that we can be privy to?

Note:(I don't know if this it the right thread to have the conversation)
Personally, when I was researching for 'open source' software for the small site that I run, I felt like SMF was my golden ticket, because it was reasonably extendible, and it could be tweaked to perform quite well. Over the past almost 5 years, I've found that behind the scenes (from the user's perspective), it's a bit, well, bloated, and not clean, concise the way I perceived it to be in the beginning.

I know what I'm looking for, but admit that it's hard to describe... quick, and nimble? I've spent enough time around enterprise applications that are just slow because they can't get out of their own way, and I'd rather not spend time outside of work dealing with more slow software.

Does that provide some semblance of detail?

Nope... There have been 710 commits to the trunk so far, each of these usually adding a feature or several fixes. I don't think we'll make a proper changelog before we actually go public alpha. (And I don't know why, but I have a feeling it's gonna be my job... ::))
Anyway, the only place to get a list of all changes is the "New Revs" topic, which stays in the private area for now. Every single one of our commits are documented over there (49 pages so far), and commented in another dedicated topic (36 pages). That's a lot to fathom ;)

It's not that bloated really... It just gives a feeling of bloat because the source code isn't cleaned up too nicely. I actually think SMF2 does a good job of going further away from SMF1 bloat. Of course, opinions will vary about Wedge being bloated or not. We're certainly adding more features[1], at a faster rate than we're simplifying the underlying SMF2 code. Some parts are gonna be a bit slower but more flexible. Overall though, I believe the perceived speed difference is largely in favor of Wedge.

I understand you too well. My work station is a 6-year-old PC with an overpatched XP and far too little RAM to work in good conditions with 150+ tabs opened permanently. Still, I use Opera, probably the browser with the most features by default, because it's the most memory-efficient and the only browser that can actually run up to 400 tabs side to side (after 300 it becomes really sluggish, but it's already a feat in itself.)

Bloat != number of features, thankfully.
We're also making it easier internally to turn features into 'core features' (i.e. on/off switches.)
 1. Right now-- been spending the last couple of days rewriting the lightbox for the media area -- Highslide is the best of all, but it's not free for commercial websites, and we want Wedge to be usable everywhere.

Dear sir/madam,

I have to share with you a concern of the utmost importance.

Why the heck do people spam forums instead of asking what they're here for, i.e. what's new in Wedge? :ph34r:
It's like people registering on sex forums saying they felt the good vibes and wanted to make new friends for tea. :niark:
Me iz here to be a spamz0r!! :D :D


Thank you everyone for the warm welcome..

Nao, stop hijacking my cookiez stealing topic! I keeeell you!! :P
