HashOver Official Version 1.0 Released!Author: Jacob Barkdull on Tuesday, March 25 2014 Comments ↴
HashOver was first announced in July of 2010, as a reinvention of Disqus, however, its development started March 29th 2009. Since its initial early developmental "release" it has matured enough for me to be comfortable making an official version 1.0 release and accept contributions. HashOver version 1.0 should be stable, reliable, and user-friendly enough for productive and constructive daily use.
To learn more I direct you to the links below:
- Information and Documentation
- Source Code on GitHub
- Source Code ZIP archive
- Test Page in PHP-Mode
- Code efficiency
- Data storage format
- Backwards and forwards compatibility
- Operating system support
- Aesthetics and graphics
- Graphic scalability on (Xi)HDPI displays
- Code readability
- Bug fixes
This means the possibility of new features in version 2.0 is next to null, and contributions via GitHub and/or e-mail that add new features will be rejected, at least for the time being. Improvements to existing functionality and aesthetics will be accepted. New features will be accepted and available in version 2.x releases.
Getting involved and helping out: For non-developers and users the simplest way to get involved and help out is by using HashOver on your website and reporting any problems you encounter. You may suggest new features or point out missing features and functionality. You may also help write HashOver's documentation and make tutorials to help other people use HashOver. Of course, Flattring this page is also appreciated.
For developers the simplest way to get involved and help out is by cloning the hashover-next branch on GitHub and addressing issues in the areas mentioned above.
