We're hoping to release a stable version as the next release. Seeing how we kept up with a regular release cycle (best team ever 😍) you understand that this release is coming fairly soon 🤯. After years of being in beta the future of Flarum is about to change for good.
All of you who have stuck around since Toby started with the kickstarter or joined soon after will probably share my relief of reaching this milestone. Those who have been with us on this journey for years have guaranteed we kept going forward, sharing in our highs and lows.
Much has changed, the team now pushing us forward in no way resembles the one of the early betas. We relied heavily on the new teams that formed and outperform what the small team managed to do in the past. Where usually one person pushed forward on the release, we already notice a much more decentralized feeling of responsibility. Our traineeship has given us an increased number of capable core developers, allowing us to grow the core team to a sensible size for the ambitions we have. It is definitely something that we strive to keep doing going forward.
I am proud to stand at the helm of this vessel as primus inter pares, steering towards an orange dawn. Our sails are catching a strong wind, the crew cheerful for what will come.
Flarum would never have come so far without the sacrifices made by many volunteers.
