Community Server 1.0
02-18-2005, 10:45 PM
I'm thrilled to announce the immediate availability of Community Server version 1.0:
We will release the source code within the coming days, we have also begun work on version 1.1. The theme for version 1.1 is:
We also intend to move to shorter release cycles. There will be breaking changes to APIs between versions 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2. After 1.2 the APIs in Community Server will be locked. By locking the APIs in 1.2 we can provide smoother non-breaking upgrade paths.
We also will begin - when our already busy schedule permits - moving back into a mode where we enable participation in the development by people other than those employeed by Telligent.
Lastly, I'd just like to personally say thank you to our team for working some insane hours over the last 8 months and everyone in the community that believed that we were doing the right think with what was ASP.NET Forums, .Text, and nGallery. It's been a tremendous amount of effort but I can say with confidence that Community Server version 1.0 brings the best of its legacy together and has greatly improved it.Thanks,

Ok, I got it. But still, why don't you folks take this well know marketing approach and name it CommunityServer 3.0 for example? You are making enhancements to the FOrum part of it, aren't you? So it should be version > 2.0.1 not to confuse current users and devs...
That's a great question. We chose to use 1.0 since this is a brand new product.
Features like the photo gallery and the blogs were largely rewritten. Technically
it would be version 3.0 of the forums. We realize this introduces some confusion,
but naming the product Community Server 3.0 would also make it sound as if Community
Server was on its third revision.
I've been toying with the idea of calling it Community Server 2005, but the problem with that is that we want to do a major release twice a year --- I guess we could say, Community Server 2005-and-a-half for later releases (hehehe).
