What does it mean?

We are happy with these numbers. Our most recent focus was to replace Rolling Release by Rush Release —a mix between Rolling Release and Scheduled-based Release—. It has increased Hoa's adoption and solved several issues with installation tools such as Composer. Feedbacks are all positives.

The number of reached goals is impressive and I would like to thanks every contributor: This is an incredible work!

The new website required a lot of time to be polished. Everyone agrees this version is visually better. Information are more accessible. The search bar is very helpful and we hope you like it!

What's next?

Go check our roadmap for the Central: It's not finished yet but it's exciting. The most important tasks are still: The documentation, migrate existing tests, move to PSR-1 and PSR-2, finalizing more libraries etc.

About non-code stuff, we have the next edition of Hoa Apex to prepare. This is an important work but every edition is a success so it deserves all this energy!


Thank you everyone for all your kindness, energies and contributions. Every nice words (even on Twitter) encourage the whole community and they are very well appreciated! Thank you for using Hoa and to trust us!
