Work hasn't begun on the next release since there's a lot of effort going on right now in another rather intriguing area of Awasu. But that doesn't mean we can't start planning what's going to be in this next release.
One of the really fun things about writing a program that is as widely used as Awasu is that it is, well, widely used. After you've worked for a while in the enterprise wastelands, writing crappy software that hardly anyone ever uses and certainly no-one cares about, it kinda wears you down. So it's fun to see people using and enjoying your work, especially when they use it in ways that you never even anticipated, let alone designed for. Also really cool is to be able to take peoples' ideas for new features, bounce them around and then fulfill them.
One of the biggest features for 2.4.2 will be an extension of Awasu's HTTP interface, which is a mechanism for controlling Awasu. It already offers a number of functions such as opening a channel or adding an item to a workpad but kevotheclone has me mouth-agape at some of the things he's planning to do "if only Awasu had such-and-such a feature in the HTTP API." So, if you're a developer doing some work with Awasu and you'd like to participate in a discussion mapping out new functionality in Awasu's extension API, drop us a line and we'll talk...
UPDATE: I was going to set up a new forum for developer talk (private, hence this shout out) but I figured we could just as well do it out in the existing public fora. If you have a request for a change in the HTTP API, just start a new thread in the Extensions forum, and we can discuss it there.
