February is winding down in a few hours and many are awaiting Elgg 1.5. Whether or not they make the projected February isn’t important if you consider what the Curverider team has achieved in there progress to a much inproved social networking platform.
Elgg 1.2 was released in Decenber with Revision 2515. As of today, in the space of 2 months, they have committed 485 revisions to the code in their Subversion repository–an absolutely astounding feat!
Having tested Elgg 1.5 myself, I can tell you that its release is very close. The developers are determined to make this release as smooth and as free of bugs as possible. From what I can see remaining issues are largely minor.
I look forward to the release very soon. I am also a firm believer that it is better to delay a release than to push it out the door before it is the best it can be! Those who simply cannot wait can always check out the latest version in the Elgg repository. The usual caveat applies: don’t run trunk on a production site.
