Anahita 4.0 Birth release is now available

JJBean on Main Vancouver

I am so thrilled to write this announcement from the JJBean on Main Street, Vancouver. Anahita 4.0 Birth release is finally ready. The new release comes with hashtags, mentions, improved search, and improved group actors. Also, we have taken out a lot more of the legacy Joomla code so Anahita is now a bit lighter and faster. You can read the announcement for yourself.

So what’s next?

The focus of Anahita 4.1 will be mobile web. We do a lot of mobile app development in our company and we use Anahita as the back-end for the knowledge apps. A lot of the improvements that we make will be available to you as a part of the default Anahita distribution.

  1. Upgrading the CSS framework to the latest release of Bootstrap
  2. Rebuilding all the UIs following a MobileFirst approach which means we will build the UIs starting with small screens and mobile devices and then accommodate larger screens if needed.
  3. Rewriting the Anahita Javascript library using JQuery and a more common Javascript framework. We still haven’t decided on that, but AngularJS seems like a possible candidate.
  4. Additional improvement to the RESTful APIs for developing mobile apps.
  5. Removing more legacy Joomla code.
