After a long period of preparation and work on the mint tools we’re now entering phase 2: the migration towards the newly released Hardy base. Work has begun and the very first BETA of Elyssa was built today. Of course it’s highly unstable at this stage, it doesn’t fit on a CD and it’s full of rough edges. Things look very promising though and we should expect a first public BETA release within 2 weeks. We’ve had 6 months to think about this and almost everything is ready to be included so we should have a very smooth release.
Also, Octy and the Italian community translated the Daryna User Guide. The document should soon become available on all official mirrors.
Finally, Kronophage is working on the software portal and adding a lot of applications in it. The Elyssa section already features 145 applications. When finished the portal should contain around 1000 apps. Each application will feature a screenshot and we’re planning on using the same authentication system for both this portal and an upcoming home-made Brainstorm clone to encourage people to post comments, reviews and ideas online.
