Now that ChiliProject 2.0.0 has been released and things are on track for 2.1.0 I’ve found myself thinking about what major features I want to work on in ChiliProject 3.0.0. Right now there are a few features I want to work on and think I can commit to getting at least them done for 3.0.0
- Per-user email – instead of sending out on email notification with everyone CC’d or BCC’d this would send out one email per recipient. It will make it so I can customize each individual email (e.g. Managers get budget information)
- New layout – I’m about 50% done merging the Shane & Peter theme into ChiliProject. This will let me fix some major user interface problems I’ve seen over the years while using Redmine/ChiliProject
- Liquid Templates – I’ve finished up a feature for a development client where they want to have more powerful macros and “scripting” in the text areas. Liquid will give us that power and make it easier for non-programmers to “script” parts of ChiliProject.
I’m also considering adding issue tagging and upgrading to Rails 3 but I’m not sure if I’ll have enough time for those.
