WebGUI 2007 Keynote

[ #34705 ]

Well, the keynote had JT's trademark cool graphics and hard rock music. It covered the evolution of WebGUI from 1.0 to today, which is just after the 7.5 branch. Notable points from this point are:

  • 6.x was required because the 5.x codebase wouldn't scale
  • 6.x pretty much killed the community due to its rapid pace. To keep up with the API changes, you pretty much had to be involved on a weekly basis.
  • The 7.4 API freeze was extended one year, from 2009 to 2010.

New features in 7.5

  • Flickr style photo gallery.
  • YouTube style video sharing.
  • A new service, WebGUI Video, which will contain all WUC videos. Comes with support subscription.
  • AJAXified Admin/Editing interface.
  • WebGUI Lite, which is a mini-version of WebGUI suitable for common users versus enterprise versions. Plain Black will be offering a low cost hosted version of this.

I won the Contributor of the Year award this year! Guess I'd better stay busy hacking WebGUI
