The open source Graffiti CMS 1.3 project started a new trunk on the source control to make room to the effort for Graffiti CMS 2.0 development. Telligent’s Graffiti coordinator posted an announcement with ideas for Graffiti 2.0
Main new feature is moving away from the database layer to something more standard, on the post didn’t talk about a mobile theme to compete against other blog engines with those already build in.
The new renewed interest for Graffiti CMS is letting know developers that Telligent didn’t just open sourced that application to stop supporting it, the way Telligent is adding time coordinating the open source solution means that even when they are giving all that to the community, they are also believe that good applications should not die just because didn’t sell as good as they first predicted.
In my modest opinion, I believe that if the open source solution gets more attention and developers to help out on the 2.0 initiative, we could actually come up with a fantastic version to compete with any other CMS out there.
This is a project to keep an eye on it, and I’ll be upgrading my blog http://alpascual.com now running Graffiti CMS 1.3 to 2.0 when released. The important here is the timeline from the announcement to the release. Most people have a very short memory, if the projects gets on its way to migrate it to 2.0 with new shiny features with a simple release cycle, the open source solution has the chance to be counted among the blog engines out there.
If you decide to help, this are the steps. Download the source code one time or connect to the TFS server / subversion. Whatever you prefer.
