It’s taken a lot of work, but as you may have seen on the news blog, Elgg 0.6 final is now available to download.
What’s been really awesome about this release is the input from the wider community. As the system has matured, we’ve started to see the development process really harness the power of open source. I think this will happen more and more as time goes on, which is great – things are beginning to snowball. Although the updates in this release are largely under the hood, 0.7 will be about interfaces, design and visible functionality; the things we plan to have in place by 1.0 go beyond any other comparable software platform, within or outside of the education sphere.
