Next CPAINT Release

All,

If you haven't figured out by now - the CPAINT development team took some time off. Over the past few weeks, we've been trying to figure out where to take CPAINT, improve our processes, and uncover ourselves from a blizzard of emails.

Now that we've had some time to catch our breath, it's long past time that we get ourselves (and CPAINT) back on track. Therefore, we are going to attempt to get a new minor release of CPAINT out by December 25th.

Our goal for this release will be to improve the code and documentation, based on the feedback we've received via email, the forums, and support tickets. The next release will support only ASP & PHP, although we will try extremely hard to get it running in other languages after the new year.

I am also looking for new talent to join the team, so Dominique and myself aren't overwhelmed in the future. In particular, we are looking for help in porting CPAINT to other backend languages (targets are Perl, Python, .NET, and Ruby) and frontend JavaScript developers (specifically, GUI design/interaction). We also need to assemble a QA team, so we don't have any problems like we did in the past.

If you're interested in helping, please fill out this nifty little form at http://cpaint.booleansystems.com/questionnaire.php and introduce yourself to us.

And keep checking our forums at http://cpaint.booleansystems.com/forums/ (the News & Announcements section in particular) for new information.

Thanks for everyone's time and continued support!

Sincerely,
Paul
