Blog

I ran my own blog from November 2006 till October 2014. All posts are still online, but I don't have time to update it anymore. Please note that all images and media files have been removed when the backup was moved to a new host in early 2016. Enjoy!

Updates: CIOS, Galaxiki, Morzino and CorneliOS

13. june 2011

Work on the CIOS Community Layer 2.0 will be completed within the next few days. The new version offers user status information, a new flexible "like" feature, bookmarks, notes, user awards, you can see who's online or visited your homepage or profile as well as a large number of smaller enhancements.

Version 1.0 of the CIOS Community Layer was released in October 2010 and it was mostly responsible for the successful Galaxiki 2.0 re-launch. Most new features have already been tested on Galaxiki and so we're quite sure everything will work fine when the 2.0 Layer will be deployed on other platforms.

I think it's quite clear that the CIOS Community Layer 2.0 will be used as backbone on Galaxiki, Morzino, the Joopita IBS and other future platforms.

Galaxiki 2.5 is also almost ready, we're still testing some stuff and I think the official launch will be scheduled for July 1st 2011. The new release offers many great features that users had been requesting for a long time and we're really happy with it.

Morzino is also still on schedule, the final release is scheduled for September 2011. The public BETA 2 is out now, two very important key technologies are still missing and we hope we can offer some new stuff in July with BETA 3.

CorneliOS is progressing very well as a platform and framework, but not as well in terms of a front end tool. With the recent changes in the desktop OS market (just look at MacOS X Lion for example) it becomes clear that the age of "traditional" OS GUIs comes to an end, so it wouldn't make much sense to "emulate" old world technology on the web. 

Which means that we'll have to re-think the core philosophy behind the CorneliOS project, and this will definitely be done this year.
