We are reaching the end of a year which saw a lot of evolution in Morfik. The intermediate releases of the 2.1 and 2.2 series brought out a number of new features and helped other features more fully mature. This month, with the start of the 2.3 branch we see Morfik turning to what is a purely bug fixing stance, which I believe is a good and necessary step to consolidating the feature set which is already present in 2.x.
While I have no idea what the long term planning at Morfik is, I do feel that we should have a couple more bug fix releases before moving on to another cycle of new feature release. Starting from the foundation that is Morfik 2.x, Morfik should be in for a great 2010, if they can avoid the trap of going to far, too soon. Morfik 2.x is a giant leap forward from 1.x in terms of both usability and productivity and it is going to be tough coming up with a similar leap for 3.0, so I hope they don’t even try to match that.
All things considered, it has been a good year for working with Morfik. I have engaged in a couple of projects both personal and commercial which are totally done in Morfik and I’ve been very happy with the results I’ve gotten, but I hope to get even better results with whatever comes out of Morfik in 2010.
While 2009 saw fifty four (54) posts on MorfikWatch, I hope that this number will get much higher in 2010. I’ve started working on a couple of projects which I’m hoping will work out well and allow me to provide more value to the readers of MorfikWatch. I’ll have to see how they evolve to see which will see the light of day.
In the mean time, I’d like to thank all of you that keep returning to MorfikWatch and wish you a great new year. Let’s hope that 2010 will be great new year for Morfik and for all of us…
