My Focus with ChiliProject 3.0.0

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. ┬áRight 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.

      Once the code for two features are done we can see when they can be included. I’m not comfortable committing to them yet since they haven’t been scheduled, developed, or reviewed yet. 3.0.0 is scheduled to be released at the end of the year so there could be enough time.

    I need to manage developers over multiple projects and we’re always wishing we had a better way of sketching out time allotments over the next few months, noting developer holidays, etc, so we had a sense of when devs are available for new projects. I know you and others have made some interesting plugins that head in that direction but I’m hoping ChiliProject could prove a solution for us. We’ve used Redmine for at least 5 years.
