announcement Update: Development hiatus

It's been a while since I posted anything here. The truth is, my vision for version 2 of CS5e is far too ambitious for me to tackle on my own at this time. This version is and has been "good enough" for my own purposes, and I've thus been unable to gather the motivation to push forward with development. My personal life has also been a bit more hectic as of late. So, for now, I've decided to put this project on hiatus. The service will stay online, of course (I'm using it, myself) but little to no development will take place until further notice. I'll pick it up again, with gusto, some time in the future.

That said, I do have an idea bouncing around in my head for a clean-ish way to implement image support for character portraits and organization symbols into the current version, and it may or may not show up in the near future. That was, after all, a planned feature of version 1.

announcement Version 2 in development

When I first started this project, some choices were made that allowed rapid development at the cost of code quality. While this got the project up and running faster, it meant that eventually those issues would have to be addressed. While I took care to write the code in very generic and modular ways whenever possible, a few of these shortcuts have proven extremely difficult to replace. They have even held up implementation of what was originally supposed to be a core feature: character portrait uploads.

As I have been working to improve CS5e over the past month or so, it has become increasingly clear to me that much of the code simply needs to be rewritten. I always intended a full rewrite at some point, so this isn't completely out of left field. Maintaining data compatibility with this version will be a primary objective of the rewrite, as will reimplementing all current functionality. So, when the new version is ready, you'll be able to bring all your characters with you.

I have no plans to shut down this version of CS5e, so feel free to continue using it while the new version is under development. If you are interested in contributing to the development process as a tester, please use the contact form below to get in touch. At this time, I am not seeking additional developers.
