Very unfortunate news – Gallery 3 is about to loose core dev team a.k.a going into hibernation ;(

If you did not already read about it there is a bad news from Gallery 3 team

The Gallery team has decided to take a step back from actively maintaining this project. Truth be told, most of the core team got busy with their lives over the past few years and we haven’t had the time to really actively maintain the project in a long time. The forums have continued to be lively and helpful and there is still plenty of good conversation there – but no new code has been written in the past 6 months and that’s not likely to change.

Unless someone else steps in and picks it up hibernation may become a sudden death.

To be realistic project was on the slow go for some time already. When we compare it to other competitors there was not enough progress on the core level so it fell behind over time.

There is great development effort behind it, we have vibrant user base, a lot of plugins, themes and ideas.

Project has value, project has user base, it would be shame to loose it but it is reality of life, there is a time of move on.

I started to look at alternatives… to be continued…

    It appears that your research went into hibernation mode as well… 🙂

    1. All to be said has been said, I do not know what other research do you expect?

  • About

    From being a junior developer all the way to Development Manager position, I was always interested in new technologies. Passionate speaker, IT junky, developer, architect, team lead, and development manager - many hats, one goal - making software better and closer to people’s needs. For the most part I am using my blog as a scratch pad, writing small articles on things which I came across, was asked about more then once, and which would otherwise require additional research again and again.
