Luna 2.1 and 3.0: where to next

It has been 5 months since our last feature update – Luna 2.0 Emerald – and in that time, development has come to a stand-still for a while. Earlier this month, we released Luna 2.0.4 and 2.0.5 to fix a number of issues. However, just to reassure you guys that we’re still working on this project – yay – I would like to tell you guys how it is going in our 3 development branches right now (being 2.0, 2.1 and 3.0).

Luna “Emerald” 2.0 Update 6

We’re currently investigating a number of bugs that have been reported over the month and will provide a new release somewhere later this month to address those issues. Version 2.0.6 will probably be the last pre-2.1 patch for Luna 2.0. 2.0.7 will likely coincide with the 2.1-release. As used to be the case with Luna 1.x, the Luna 2.0.x-series will continue to receive bug fixes until the release after 2.1 is made available.

Luna “Fallow” 2.1

Fallow is our next minor update, it will be mostly some more polish, bug fixes and minor new features. Fallow might turn out to be our smallest feature-update yet. Don’t expect to much from this update. We currently are planning to improve the spoiler-tag and are giving the thread-view in Sunrise a new design. Other new features might join in later as well as development continues.

Luna 3.0

Luna 3.0 is our next major milestone and as always, we want to rewrite most, if not all, of the core of Luna to give ourselves a more modern codebase to build upon. I currently do not have an ETA on when the first alpha release will be made available. There is a “version3.0”-branch available on GitHub, however, I do not recommend you to download that code, let alone use it (in a production environment) as it will remove a lot of features and data from your database. We’ll have more to share later.
