By the way ... is there a chance or timeline of some stable-release
of Pier? I have some guys (including me :-) which need some great
It is already on SqueakMap, for quite some time now ;-)
I recently heard an interesting presentation of Gilad Bracha titled
"Objects as Software Services: Toward a World without Releases".
For me the thing without the releases was nothing new: I never really
released "SmallWiki 1", and this will be probably the same for Pier
and Magritte. At some point in time, people just started to use it,
because it fits their needs. Some people wait a bit longer, because
they require a particular feature, others are just happy with what
they get. Some people never update their code after they have what
they initially wanted, others always want to stay up-to-date at the
bleeding edge. Some people write extensions, fork the system, modify
it while merging my changes, etc.
And at the same time I am slowly, but continuously developing it
further, enhancing the running system, fixing bugs, integrating
changes of other people, etc.
Btw, I am using Pier for my own web-site now ;-)
