<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">Since we know everyone is interested in seeing what's been going on we are planning a working demo so those interested will be able to take tests drives. So keep an eye out for the launch of, it should be up sometime this week. But if you are the adventurous type you can always download the
latest/greatest from CVS ( but remember this is only for review purposes and shouldn't be used on
"live" sites. If you're unfamiliar with CVS you can get more information here:
And we encourage those interested in discussing the upcoming release we have setup a forum
on the NOC
and you can access it here:</font>

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">There has also been
some concern regarding the templating engine, it is true we lost work on the
PTE (Phoenix Template Engine) but the XTE (Xanthia Template Engine) will be as
powerful as the proposed PTE. Both
are based
on SMARTY which
brings a wealth of features to the table. We've created a compare/contrast
for you to review so you can see that the templating
engine will deliver on the promises made in the past and we're confident you won't be disappointed
with the new engine's features and stability. (Note:
is currently in CVS for review.)</font><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">

the past promises have been with the fullest intentions of keeping
them -- but as we all know life happens and plans change.
But as said before we've picked up and are marching (coding) forward.
And just so you know the progress is exciting, and that sense of
excitement is back in the project. We are having fun and in my
opinion this is the most important part of the project because in the end that's what everyone gets in return, that sense of accomplishment and the joy of doing it. So as a team we are working
towards, a 1.0 release.</FONT>

<FONT SIZE=2>Other changes have been made behind the scenes too. For example, Harry has passed the day-to-day activities of managing the project to me. He is still actively involved in the project in the background and in an advisory role. Moving forward things aren't going to change from the original vision of the project but we are looking toward the future as technology and developments change. Keeping up-to-date on new technologies will allow us to integrate any new developments into the project when it makes sense. </FONT>

<FONT SIZE=2>Finally, the community of PostNuke is what makes it unique, and therefore I consider keeping you informed about all aspects of development an important part of being a member of this community. So announcements will be made on a monthly basis under the category pnUpdates. We're all working toward the same goals, so let's all have fun in helping to create software that provides each of us with the kind of solution that meets our needs.</FONT>
