Codegarden was a great event as usual. We got a glimpse into the changes that are going on with Umbraco version 7 - the big topic was Angular JS.
My mono / Linux presentation proceeded as planned. And I also had a chance to catch up with the core team to discuss how we can bring the mono changes into the Umbraco project.
On other very good news, Umbraco is now hosted on git hub, and this makes life a whole lot easier!
I will continue with the mono development on my git hub project and deliver production ready distributions for 4.7.2, 4.11.x, and 6.0.6. After this is done, there will be no further development in this repo. I anticipate that in 2 - 3 months, this should all be completed.
For those who want a head start, I have already created a sample Linux web site with sample configuration files here. However, this sample uses Umbraco 6.0.3, and therefore is not production ready. It also has a Lucene bug and an intermittent Xml Cache issue, which remain to be fixed. But it is great for a head start.
I also intend to release an ISP guide, which will make it easier for ISPs and hosting providers to create and set-up mono / Linux based Umbraco hosting environments.
Happy computing everyone!
