Work on version 2.0 of Network54 has come to the point where the forums, blogs, and votelets are nearly done, and where we started to look at the remaining items we have to do (which are surprisingly numerous). There are some issues with the way things are done and the way we want them to work. We have a rather detailed plan for version 3.0 (and an outline for version 4, 5, and 6 even!). To get from here to there will be a lot of work, but we have found a project that could be the underpinnings for v3.
If we were to convert our current v2 code to this new model, we would be very close to achieving v3 possibly a year earlier. It will delay a public demonstration of v2 by a month or so. However, since it provides the tools for doing the parts of v2 that are not yet complete, we have determined that the actual release date will not be affected. Slow us down up front to speed things on later.
It is hard to swallow. We are so easer to show off it hurts. But the thought of getting both v2 and v3 out this year is too much to pass up...
