Re: Toast to Dean

This was tweeted by textpattern. I thought that it should be linked from the forum too.

Re: Toast to Dean

RIP Dean – a true visionary. Hopefully modern Textpattern still retains some of the ideology and aesthetics that you initially created. We will continue to work on and support your legacy.

I remember the article, but have never actually looked up and read Dean’s original letter. Thanks for the link, @bici.

Re: Toast to Dean

As Phil says, I hope the spirit of Dean’s vision lives on as we iterate Textpattern.

Here’s to the guy I never met who’s shaped my life for twelve years, and continues to do so. If that isn’t the sign of a legend, I don’t know what is.

Re: Toast to Dean

And so, commit 7d41b1ada4c48f5eed8b15e3ba5c1e9c4a12f823 lands (cheers, Phil) and the upcoming Textpattern 4.7.0 is released in memory of Dean Allen, creator of Textpattern CMS.

Cheers, Dean.
