We have just released a new version of the coreBOS project.
Let me start by saying that this release is not what I expected. I had in mind for this release a set of new functionality based on the many modules, extensions and patches that we have constructed in the past years, instead the surprisingly high amount of people who have approached the project and expressed their needs and expectations have made me change my priorities a little.
Truth is that I have returned to my initial vision, where I see coreBOS as the core foundations you construct your business upon, not an on-demand CRM nor an application, but as a business tool you can count on to get out of the way and let you do your business, optimizing your resources, like a good operating system should do.
That is what many people asked me for, a solid, trustworthy and proven base that they can keep on growing on. So I focused on the core functionality needed and came up with three big lines for this release:
I am very happy to see all the REST enhancements, because they are at the center of many of the satellite projects and open development initiatives I am juggling right now with my team and with other community members who have shown their support (INCREDIBLE! you wouldn't believe how many projects have started and are coming along), but I am personally very satisfied with the structure my team came up with for the code, it makes it easier to upgrade going forward, specially the coreBOS Updater which I'm sure will prove to be a life saver in the near future.
From where I stand right now I would expect a new version in a couple months maximum if not sooner, that version should see a stable and updated code base (finish upgrading the libraries that haven't been upgraded yet), a final set of REST changes that are needed for inventory modules and email support and the new features that are in development right now along with changes we already have should start appearing in that one or the next
We continue our journey!! Keep tuned
