March 2022 status: catching up on recent news
The beginning of 2022 has been sufficiently busy that we decided to skip two of our usual monthly status update blog posts. Things have not calmed down that much in March, but we didn't want to go any longer without an update.
Preparing for 2022
With the end of the year nearly upon us I am keeping up my tradition of writing a retrospective of what the CryptPad team has done over the past twelve months and an overview of our plans for the next twelve.
Relocating our blog
This is just a quick announcement to say that we've moved our blog from blog.cryptpad.fr to blog.cryptpad.org.
March 2021 status: Public roadmap and Spreadsheet updates
This month we released two versions of CryptPad, 4.2 and 4.3. Both improved CryptPad's stability and performance
No plan survives first contact with the enemy
In 2019 we finished a four-year research project that had covered the majority of CryptPad's development costs. We had some worries about how we would continue to fund our team, but we were fortunate enough to meet and form a good relationship with members of Europe's Next Generation Internet Initiative.
Looking back, looking forward
It was four years ago when I first started working full-time on CryptPad. At that point fewer than 10 people used the service on a weekly basis.
Our future is collaborative
For anyone that doesn't have the time or interest to read the rest of this article, the short version is that the CryptPad team has received a 50000 Euro grant from NLnet foundation. This funding will be directed towards the design and development of team-centric features in a project we're calling CryptPad Teams.
Join the team
We've been making a big deal of our funding status for the last while, and for good reason. CryptPad has largely been funded by the OpenPaaS research and development project, funded by BPIFrance...
CryptPad was started as an experimental platform as part of the OpenPaaS::NG research project. Since then it has developed into a suite of editors for many different types of documents, all without ever leaking the content that you edit to the server or the server operators.
One year of biweekly releases
Approximately one year ago, we published an article about our intention to follow a biweekly release schedule. Since then, we've thought of every second Tuesday as release day.
