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…
