Thank you, Jason! So I will use MODx only for smaller projects. Whenever versioning or "workflowing" is required, I have to use another system. Bringing these functionality to the 0.9 branch would require more development-time and knowledge than I have. And even worse: My efforts would be very likely to become outdated with 1.0.
It’s a pity, since the optimal situation for me - and others - would be to learn (=invest time) in a universal solution.
However, I understand quite well the conditions and limitations of an open-source, unfunded development project. But you have come so far with your excellent product, would be a shame to slow down.
Considering all the announcements made for 1.0 I’m arguing whether you have planned more than can be achieved within a reasonable or predictable time. This could induce a high risk for the whole project, since it can undermine the motivation of the developers as well as the confidence of the users.
Nevertheless: I will stay tuned and spend some weekends studying your code. This is more for fun than for productivity, though.
