June 2011 Archives

The Open Melody crew is working on making this new publishing platform better.

Among the areas that are addressed at this stage, Byrne Reese mentioned:

  • The modularization of Melody's code base continues as we continue our efforts to break its monstrous code base into more manageable components. In the future this will allow to more rapidly iterate on improvements we want to make, and allow users to dramatically reduce the size of their installation be eliminating components they do not need or use.

  • The project to eliminate the highly proprietary javascript framework called TypeCore, and replace it with jQuery is underway. We are a release or two from completely severing the tie, but it good to see work started.

  • The Atom Publishing Protocol implementation has been upgraded to be more standard compliant and has been tested to work with the popular blogging client Mars Edit.

  • We continue to back port popular features from MT5 into Melody, like the awesome listing framework developed by Six Apart. We have even made and shared back improvements to their implementation by overhauling the system's javascript.

  • We have dramatically enhanced dashboard widget management and made numerous other improvements to the UI's polish.

Byrne concluded the release announcement saying:
