Following the release of the 3.0 version, we always wanted to separate the framework components out of the bug genie core. Although there are a million php frameworks out there already, it would be a shame if all our efforts so far could not be used for anything but an anonymous life inside the bug genie core.
A few preparations have been made earlier, to make sure we were ready to release when the time came. Now that we also have what we consider to be a very stable codebase with version 3.1, the time is right to make an effort getting the framework extracted. A name was chosen way back when the preparations were made, and we’ve chosen “Caspar”.
Several questions present themselves:
* what are the benefits – if any – of going down this route?
* is it possible to maintain two projects with such a small core team?
* what, exactly, will this framework project contain?
* how will this impact the current development pace and strategy for upcoming release of the bug genie?
We’ve put a great deal of thought into all these matters, and they will he addressed in separate blog posts the following days.
If you wanna get involved in the Caspar project or the bug genie, give us a shout 🙂
