IMHO, I don’t think there needs to be a re-branding. I’m not going to complain but I’m just not feeling it. Seems a bit unprofessional. Oh well, I still love MODx and the effort everyone puts forth. Thanks guys/gals.
Well, I’ve had "Tattoo" hanging over my head for the last year, so this is excellent
It’s not so much a re-branding as it is a branding clarification. It’s primarily serving three specfic purposes:
a) making room for 0.9.6 to continue having releases without running into 0.9.7; some people will still want the legacy code base until Revolution is stable for a while
b) providing clear differentiation between the legacy code and the completely rewritten Revolution code; a minor version change does not accurately reflect the significant changes
c) breaking the 1.0 barrier; most projects start at 1.0 and people are hesitant to use a product with numbers below 1.0; we feel MODx (even the legacy branch) is way too mature for a pre-1.0 version scheme and some additional announcements will be coming this month in that regard
Think of Revolution to be a code name, like OS X Tiger or OS X Leopard; we’re simply trying to make it easier for development to continue on both paths without confusing a whole lot of people with version numbers that are simply way too close together on these very different branches.
