[Home]ProposalFor1.1

UseModWiki | RecentChanges | Preferences

This page is created in hope that UseMod 1.1 might someday see the light of day. (NextRelease seems to concern itself with version 1.0)

Many people are probably reluctant to incorporate changes that add radically new features, and thus stray from the best minimal feature set that makes usemod so popular. This is a correct approach, extended functionality is what patches are for. Which brings up the final reason for not releasing a version 1.1: it could break too many of the existing patches.

That said, I would like to propose a usemod 1.1 that will be a small enough incremental improvement over 1.0 that is important enough to consider, yet small enough not to require months of regression testing and not break too many patches. The goal I propose for 1.1 would be:

Without further verbiage, here's a list of changes that I (UngarPeter?) would propose:

1. Fixes
2. Simplifications
3. Changes
4. CSS support
5. Other patches

At least we should put together a pure bugfix release, maybe as first step before adding new stuff. --MarkusLude

I already have that ready... Now what do I do with it? -- UngarPeter
You could send me them to usemod at usemod.com or try to check what hasn't made it yet to the latest bugfix release --MarkusLude

1. Fixes

These are already fixed since bugfix release 1.0.2.

2. Simplifications

3. Changes

4. CSS support

5. Other patches


my primary goals for 1.1 are:

I'm especially interested in feedback from using non-english usemod wikis and problems with the current CSS classes. Currently stuff is spread over lots of wiki pages here.

ToDo?: look through the bugs / patches listed on NextRelease which where already in 1.0 and cleanup that page.
