Sneak Peek

Projects and Code155 words1 minutes to read

It’s still in the works, but I thought I’d give you all a sneak peek of the new Tarzan Control Panel. Check it out:

Tarzan Control Panel 1.2 Beta

I’ve still got some things to implement, bugs to fix, design tweaks to make, and API to build, but overall the new 1.2 version of Tarzan is shaping up extemely well. I don’t like to announce timelines for personal projects (as work/professional projects have been known to take up large chunks of time, and I have to dedicate myself to those in order to pay the bills), but I can say “soon”.

I’m also hoping to put out a v1.1.1 release to address Dreamhost’s recent decision to disable the use of PHP’s fopen() function for accessing data from external sites. This decision directly affects both Tarzan and SimplePie.

I know that this is just a visual sneak peek, and there isn’t much here for Tarzan developers, but what do you think?
