We released the first beta of Keyman and Keyman Developer 7 on Friday and were very pleased by the number of people who asked to join the beta in the first day.  They have already created 15 issue reports of high quality which is very encouraging (Join the beta).

After publishing the beta first thing on Friday, we spent the rest of the morning tearing down the wall between our two new offices – found it quite a good way of bleeding off the stress of putting out the release!  We have no more walls we can take down so I am not quite sure what we will do after publishing beta 2.

 

Yes, this is my first blog entry.  I tend to find it hard to write down this kind of thing and I am hoping that an informal outlet will be a good place to do that.  I do have a lot of things I want to write about regarding Keyman, so that will hopefully keep me going for a while.
