A tale of creatng awesomazing software

Hacktoberfest brought a bunch of interesting features along with the normal coreBOS Beat musical note

A month full of new features and functionality while we keep up the pace. Very nice!

August is usually a slow month and this summer I have been looking in another direction, learning some interesting technology like Apache Kafka, graph databases and also dedicating some time to studying oWASP and security issues, but there have still been some interesting things going on as coreBOS relentlessly keeps evolving.

Keeping up the pace we start working on a generic payment gateway integration, we add individual SMTP settings per user, new workflows and conditions, release new code and keep fixing and enhancing. Enjoy!

Some interesting new functionality arrives this June, like the SendGrid and HubSpot integrations and a very important new workflow task to call web services, but there is more and the usual maintenance stuff as we keep enhancing the project.

coreBOS now has an abstraction layer to send emails. Instead of the hardcoded phpmailer library, we can easily use any email service to send emails like SendGrid, MailChimp or sendinblue among others.
