We’re all familiar with water, right? You know, H20? Well in light of all the Web 2.0 “stuff” out there today, I’ve been asked to be part of a team working on a new version.
As you may or may not know, our current stable release is H21. It is a maintenance release, with a few bug fixes. But we’re we’re really proud of is our new Beta for version H30. It’s a limited beta, so you have to be invited by someone who is already a beta particpant, but don’t ask me for an invitation. I was only given a few and I’ve already given them out.
So, besides the new spelling, you might be wondering what’s new in Watr H3.0. Well, here’s a short list:
- Rewritten from the ground up using Ruby on Rails and AJAX
- A public REST API*
- A public SOAP API*
- Even more Hydrogen than before!
- Baked in tag support, bringing a whole new meaning to the phrase “tag cloud”
- RSS/Atom feeds
- User-generated content
- and more!
* = Available in a future release
This is all very exciting, as you can imagine. Due to the “limited beta” status, I’ve said about all I can say about this, but keep your eyes open for our public beta in the near future.
