    Happy New Year @All :)

    @NixFifty do you have a schedule how and when the projects will see new releases? Shorter and smaller update increments are much better than large updates.

    I'd like to see a new maintenance release for tickets once a month, so that all bugs are fixed. For example the first week of the month do a maintenance release for tickets. The second or third week do a maintenance release for the next product, etc. This assures the stability and confidence.

    I second that. A "routine schedule" is the best you can do. Frees the mind.

    Happy new year! Hope you had a refreshing break. :)

    I do plan to move to one since I currently just work my way through my to do list with no set deadlines. I would like to start pumping out more regular releases especially now that I have XF2 products to consider.

    As a general update for products though, I’m currently polishing up Calendar and fixing some last minute gremlins I’ve noticed (missing phrases, typos, etc). I’ve been working away on a Tickets update to clean up the codebase a little and introduce some improvements and features (KB anyone?). Applications is also intertwined with Tickets since they’re effectively built off the same foundation.

    I’m also sitting on some updates ready to go but haven’t had a chance to drop yet cause of the holidays and just getting back in to the swing of things. Hoping to start dropping them later this week.

    But yeah, 2018 = involving more testers, more maintenance releases, quicker release cycles and new products. Roughly in that order. I’ll try and publicly set some deadlines too as that adds some accountability.

    I praise the new Calendar "Beta 1" version. There is A LOT of progress. Thumbs up. Especially to mention the "Responsive Mode" layout problem seems to be fixed for now. Just keep it this way, it's good. I found some bugs of course and also some suggestions that seem to be necessary to improve the user experience. I will post them now in the according forums.
