Hello to all!
I'm new to SS and have been digging through the Wiki, Forums, Demo and all the rest of the info available on SS in the last few days as I'm one of those guys on the apparently neverending quest for the perfect CMS.
But SilverStripe just might end this search of mine. It really looks great, has a lot of tiny thought-through details that make me love it and is supposably easy enough to use for non-geeks (of which I have to think of, too).
On my 'research' on SS-Development it struck me that things are moving forward quite quickly - which is great! Especially the projects from this year's Google Summer of Code seem great. The downside of this fast-paced progress is that a guy alien to the system (like me!) loses track of what's possible with SS 2.0 (now), 2.1 (upcoming) and future versions.
I've read a lot of "[...] might be integrated in 2.1" or "will possibly be integrated in 2.1" or "This bugfix will probably find its way into the 2.1[...]". This made me very unsure about the features actually integrated into the upcoming 2.1 release. I know of the usability-audit & its consequences as well as the approached code-cleanup to gain more system-responsiveness. But what else will be in 2.1?
Will the projects from Google Summer of Code already be in the 2.1 release? What about a seamless integration of SS and Wordpress (I've read this somewhere...)?
I'm really longing for a comprehensive feature-list of 2.1 and possibly a glimpse into the future development-direction of SS. Could you provide such a thing or is the current progress on SS too fluid to make any such statement? It would sure ease the process of getting a comprehensive and comprehensible ;) overview over SS! Thank you!!
