I’m pleased to announce the release of Extensible 1.0 Beta 1, available immediately for download. You can also pull down the code and build it yourself. This release features a number of improvements and bug fixes that you can read all about in the release notes. There are a few things worth highlighting:
- A large amount of effort in this release was spent improving the handling of remote data loading, including handling remote errors properly. See the updated remote calendar sample which now allows you to toggle remote errors on and off for testing.
- Localization has been fully implemented and several locale files included.
- A few new config options have been added, including read-only calendar support and a flexible multi-day view option.
- Lots of bug fixes
Note that originally recurrence support was planned for 1.0. This has been deferred for now, but will be the main focus of the 1.1 release.
Please give the beta release a try and if you find any bugs or have feedback please visit the Extensible forums.
1.0 Release Plans
Currently I am planning one more beta release that will contain the final changes / feature additions for 1.0. That release should occur within about 2 weeks. After that will be one or two release candidates as needed, which will only contain bug fixes required to finalize the release, then the final 1.0 will follow. I am currently targeting February 1st as the 1.0 release date.
I also plan to finalize and announce all the details around support and pricing after the first of the year, and will be having a pre-release sale on all commercial licensing plans in January leading up to the 1.0 final release.
Thanks to everyone who so far has contributed bug reports, feature requests, fixes and locale files. I really appreciate everyone’s interest and contributions, and there will be lots of great stuff coming down the road. 1.0 is just the beginning!
