I’m reopening this thread to make a few things clear.
@Jannis makes a very good point that is perfectly in line with our forum ethos and guidelines. As does @zeebe. Their comments are not at all negative, and @Jannis is merely doing his job as a moderator, ensuring the forum retains its ease of use and doesn’t end up cluttered with posts about minor updates and maintenance releases. There is nothing personal here, simply a wish to keep a clear focus with everything in its place.
All small independent developers like @juergenbarth are welcome to join us — but obviously they have to ask first. If @juergenbarth does ask, then we’ll offer him his own forum like every other developer here, and he’ll then be able to post all his point-release updates there.
As for favouritism regarding frameworks, @Piggles, you can remove your tinfoil hat, there’s no conspiracy here! Everyone has their own perspective and preference, of course, but one thing is true for all framework developers: they all struggle in the beginning to gain acceptance for their products. Some of them still struggle.
The competition is very strong, so the standards demanded by users are now extremely high. As such it’s natural for feedback to be perceived as ‘negative’ in the early stages, and it’s ever credit to a developers’ resilience that they use this criticsm constructively to improve their product.
At version 1.2.4, Platform is a mere toddler at the moment, and @juergenbarth — just like @Lucas and @habitualshaker — still have a long way to go. And it’s going to be a hard bumpy ride.
