As probably you read somewhere else, a few days ago the Channel9 team released the latest version of Oxite.
If you remember, when it was first released back in December, there was a lot of negative feedbacks, but now it seems like the latest release contains a lot of refactoring. I think I’ll start to play with it.
All the team members have a blog (which runs on Oxite, of course) and they posted some blog posts to explain the new changes.
- Duncan Mackenzie, which is the PM, wrote a post explaining the PR issues and how they responded to the feedbacks: Responding to feedback on Oxite;
- Erik Porter, one of the devs, wrote a long and detailed post about the changes that are included into the latest release: Oxite.2009.2.15 Released. In a word: “Everything”;
- Mike Sampson, the architect, explains the architecture of Oxite: The Oxite Architecture: Good, Bad, and Meh Part 1 (I guess there will also be a “Part 2” in the future);
I think Oxite has a potential if they include the features that are needed by the final end-user (like easy install procedure, update procedure and that stuff).
So I decided to create a folder on my reader, and add all the Oxite related feeds to it. They are the three blogs of above, some of the Codeplex feeds, and the feed of the last team member (Nathan Heskew). If you are interested I created an OPML file that includes all of them.
Some of the members are also on Twitter:
