You can see here on github that it is very alive. :)

I should post more status updates!

I've fixed most of the bug tickets related other than internals improvements (which I'm putting off; way more than enough internals improvements have already been done for one release).


The installer is experimental.  If it doesn't work for you, fall back on the old source install instructions, or use Task::WebGUI and sbin/testEnvironment.pl to upgrade an WRE.  CentOS support in the installer is currently broken by the newest release of CentOS.


wG7 is still recommended for production or if you're upgrading an old site.

My plan is to modify the installer so I get feedback on successful in addition to unsuccessful installs, and do something similar for wG 8 itself, so I can get data from all of the people testing the install.  I'm finding that people don't really volunteer feedback/failure reports on their own.

Plan is also to rework the admin again, but I want to do a beta release before then.

One of the bug tickets that's still open is an old problem that we were struggling with in 7:  Image::Magick very often doesn't install cleanly.  So I'm finishing reworking things to use Imager instead.

More help testing would be most appreciated!

Thanks for the update Scott,

I highly approve of Imager.  I used it like a decade ago and it was one of the most pleasant experiences I ever had with pixel manipulation libraries.

I would consider doing another install to help test.  I've been thinking about wg lately; here at $work, we install to /data, and the only other piece of software that I know of that does this is wg.  Has that bit changed in the latest round of internals improvements?

Good hearing from you,

C.J.

Hey CJ!

/data used to be difficult to change, but the installer now asks where you want to put it.  It still defaults to /data and the config file paths still have to be right.  I had the installer doing user-level installations for a while (Plack vs Apache makes that a lot easier) but decided not to focus on that since you need root/sudo to install OS package deps anyway.  Theoretically, I could just give people a list of deps to install and then have the installer do a user level install, if I rework it a bit.

It has been a long time since that last post here. Is there any news about new releases?
