Re: Textpattern UK user group meet up: autumn 2016

Yes the meeting took place yesterday, 4.7 roadmap plans were formulated amongst other discussions. It was good. No doubt a blog post will follow.

Re: Textpattern UK user group meet up: autumn 2016

To update everyone subscribed to this thread: it’s been a few weeks since Stef, Phil and I met for the autumn 2016 Textpattern user group meeting. Please consider this an unofficial field report and not a replacement for a textpattern.com blog posting.

At the 2015 meet up, Textpatern 4.5.7 was the production release. A lot of stuff relating to 4.6.0 was discussed and a roadmap was produced as a result. For the 2016 meet up, 4.6.2 was the latest and greatest, and our discussions focussed on the upcoming 4.7.0 release.

Stef and I slummed it in a local budget hotel, and used as much free wifi as we dare. There was some beer, too. Phil stopped by and bought us lunch (thanks, Phil!), and we took over his new work office for the afternoon.

Phil and Stef discussed various items in the GitHub issues, assigned and changed some milestones, and overall progress was made. There seemed to be less urgency this year, likely because the monumental changes between 4.5 and 4.6 were in the past. Textpattern 4.7 is looking like it will be evolutionary rather than revolutionary, and building on the hard work put into 4.6.

It’s very encouraging to see almost daily commits to Textpattern core in recent months, and it’s even more amazing to see the issues queue chipped away in preparation for the Textpattern 4.7 release. The issues tagged for Textpattern are here and as I write this 29 are open, while 15 have been closed.

If you can spare a few minutes, please take a look at that list and check if there’s anything you can help or assist with.

As a final point, as the person who’s arranged a couple of user group meetings, I’m scoping out the feasibility of doing the next one remotely, perhaps via IRC or some form of video conference. I’ll be gathering opinions in this thread, so please throw your 2c in if you have anything to say.
