Short status update on what's happening
Some words from me again. I just wanted to let you know that we're working very hard with the issues reported on the Beta. Thank you for all the good feedback!
The things we've worked the most with is to fix some issues in the layout engine (and of course a few other things). The client is more stable now and we're currently giving another batch of people access to their long awaited Beta accounts.
I need a bit more verification on a few things before we let too many people in XIOS/3. We have received an incredible amount of signups the last few weeks and we want to make sure that everybody gets a good and solid user experience.
We also made a XIOS/3 demo video the other day. It answers some of the questions raised here at the blog. Check it out if you haven't already. It shows off a couple of cool features and proves the potential with XIOS/3.
Also, there was a number of questions in the comments to my previous entry.
Q: When will you have Firefox support? It's a deal breaker for me...
A: As soon as possible. I'm a heavy Firefox user myself and have done a lot of development previously using Firefox and Firebug as my main tools. I miss that and want to get back to it. It's however a challenge to make it work so it'll take a while before it's done. I don't want to make any promises on a time frame though.
Q: Is there really a Beta going on?
A: Yes, but it's still very limited. We're expanding the Beta rapidly from now on.
Q: Where do I download the IDE?
A: The IDE is part of the OS, built in XML and will run inside it (YES you can continue to develop on the IDE within the IDE). It's not part of the initial beta release and will come later on. In the beta release you use a supplied text XML editor.
Be patient, you will all soon have your Beta accounts.
