Roadmap to Release?

the masses will know as soon images are involved. Get designers/imagemakers/etc to do that job. There are enough to be found within the MaidSafe members who work for free, just as the programmers.

widespread help begins with good propaganda

I think the masses won’t really know until a few killer apps come out, and change the whole world forever

I predict that this won’t happen until 2017 at least.

predictions are dangerous :wink: we’ll see

Not a day goes by without me wishing SAFE was already launched :slight_smile:
I imagine how safe the new internet would be, the endless use-cases it enables and the knowledge it unlocks.

Off topic a bit but my favorite apps would be those that replace the torrent clients and the centralized cloud services :smiley:

Go team Maidsafe!

I posted this topic, close to a year ago. The roadmap still hasn’t been updated (it was supposed to be updated in “3 weeks” 11 months ago), and MaidSafe still hasn’t reached TestNet 3 or even BETA.

Say what you want about changes being made to MaidSafe, but how it can take 11 months to update a roadmap (which still hasn’t been done), a simple task which wouldn’t take 1 person 20 minutes to do, is beyond me.

well they actually have this

http://maidsafe.net/roadmap (which also is not updated)

but yes there is an endemic problem with MaidSafe around communication.

last I heard through a 3rd party was that testnet 3 and beta have been scrapped and now we will jump from TN2 to Beta… again I didn’t hear this from the Maidsafe folks.

i offered to volunteer for them to do help with communications, but it does not appear that criticism is taken well by the project leaders.

c’est la vie…

If you drop in here every so often, and expect to immediately know what’s going on, and then blame that you don’t on the project leaders I’m baffled.

There is masses of communication with the community from Nick, David and many of the devs. There are also passive ways to find out what’s going on. You guys are ensuring you don’t know what is going on and haven’t taken on board the responses to similar earlier criticisms.

FYI the project is making great strides. Its a really exciting time and anyone can see that if they open their eyes.

I think we would prefer a different tone to our communications :wink: It’s a wee bit amateur to dis a project and then approach them to do comms (never mind unprofessional)? I figure we are a bit smarter and more honourable than that. We speak honestly and direct and I will never stand for any change to that.

I will accept we need a new dev website (being worked on for last few weeks) and new roadmap, being worked on for last few weeks. Anyone who can do that in 20 mins is also another offer we won’t be taking up.

Instead ask yourself what positive thing are you doing of have done for the community and if all you come up with is some form of motivation via criticism, that again it’s not some thing I would will accept as helpful.

Then offer your professional services again, i bet you I can guess the answer :wink:

Yeah I was wondering that too

This is birth. SAFE at this point would be a success just for the concept. I’ve recall one of the crew expressing that the coding for the project is not necessarily the most demanding, but obviously man power is limited and the quality standard must be very high. The beta has to deliver at least some of the promise to start a fire. The full software and hardware eco system won’t be there at launch so there will be obvious and necessary disclaimers. But with luck it will be good enough to get those who really love the build out process to get to work and the world will be put on notice.

like i said incapable of taking criticism…

don’t worry about me, i’m busy on other projects. i just like to check on my crypto portfolio once in a while.

you all need an entire communications and market engagement strategy… a new dev website is one little cog in that big picture that’s either missing or misfiring.

i think it is a good idea, the engineering appears to be going well, i think the mgmt could be better, but in the long run all kinks get ironed out anyway. there is a long term trend in business starting after ww2 toward p2p economy so that will carry projects like maidsafe, bitcoin, ethereum, tor, and others like a tide that lifts all boats.

Be aware this is not published yet, so placeholder. Bundle two is 2 bundles, so bundle 2 and bundle 3. These will each represent a sprint (so usual 1 week plan 2-3 weeks code). this is the current pace though, it’s pretty impressive so a huge thanks to the Engineers here. They are doing a great job.

Brilliant job guys. The engineers are doing the community proud. Keep up the great work
