Summer Development Roadmap

This is an update on the development for Backup Nexus, or bun.

Our focus for the past few months has been to bring bun up to a baseline level of usability. Because the focus was on polishing bun, we were making rapid releases every two weeks. All of this culminated in beta 6 last week, which is now in a very stable state.

Since we have gotten bun to the baseline level functionality, the development focus for the next few months will be shifting to the back-end. Some of our plans include bringing a faster server cluster online, which would help with connectivity. In addition, the back-end enhancement will allow us to quicken our pace of future development and push out some truly exciting features, which we have been craving to work on ever since bun was conceived. A new web site is also in the making.

What does all this mean for you? It means that in the immediate future, there will be a less frequent release of bun. During this time, beta 6 is fully supported and you can continue to use it. The project will look quiet from the outside, but rest assured we are working hard on the inside.

The best is yet to come.
