Mmmm, after the jerk-flavored roasted turkey for Thanksgiving dinner (with an amazing Paula Dean corn casserole) I got some excellent coding mojo. That is, of course, after the tryptophan wore off. Then I realized that it has been over 6 months since the last bug fix release and it kinda seemed like it was about time to get these fixes I’ve worked on over the last few months more widely distributed. So I tagged Bangarang 2.1 beta last night.
There was once a 2.1 target features list, but as I’ve realized over the last few months, with just myself as the main developer, it just makes sense to work on whatever motivates me, when I’m motivated to work on it. I’ll do target features and and more fixed release schedules if the number of contributors grow. Fun is my biggest motivation and it’s gotten quite a bit done thus far. And yes, I do enjoy knocking out bugs as much as I enjoy adding features. :-)
I think there were enough new features to warrant the bump to 2.1 instead of another 2.0 bugfix release. Anyway, I’ve really enjoyed these last few months of development and if anyone wants to join in on the fun, holler! Till then please help me test and report any issues you encounter.
