The Bug Genie version 3.1 is now nearing the first Release Candidate, and hopefully we’ll have a final release ready next week. So, when 3.1 has been shipped, what are the plans going forward? The whole team is bubbling with ideas for improvements and new features, but the main focus for the next release is:
- Improved permissions handling and configuration
This will be the main focus of the next version. Streamlining the somewhat powerful, yet confusing permission configuration system is long overdue. As soon as 3.1 is ready, we will begin working on this.
- Revamped and improved project hierarchy
Projects in The Bug Genie supports editions, components and releases with several settings for configuring each of these items individually. There are, however, much room for improvement in the project hierarchy handling, which will also be a main focus in 3.2
- Moving to git
Although last in this list, it is the first thing that will happen. We are still discussing whether to move to github.com or start using sourceforge.net’s git service. After all, we’ve been with sourceforge.net for a long time, and although it has had its fair share of quirks and problems, it is where we started out and it still has a special place in our hearts. Now isn’t that all sentimental and cute.
There you have it for the immediate plans. In addition to this, we have people on the team eager to make improvements to the module handling in The Bug Genie, with support for the much discussed module download service on thebuggenie.com. Plans are still on the table regarding how to implement this – if you want to join in, come visit us in the live chat, forums or the mailing lists!
