Project is gathering momentum having been through an awkward transition and significant refactor. In the process of testing the refactor many existing bugs - including severe ones involving panics - have been resolved. Our CI systems now run more integration tests
The main issues we have are:
There has not been a release since the last update - this had been due to the large scale refactoring of not only Burrow but all of our tooling which now resides in http://github.com/monax/bosmarmot and is moving towards stability. We have had to refactor and rehouse all of our code to give us something we could maintain and test that functionality had been maintained.
There is still a good chance of a release (Burrow 0.18.0 - although a major release we are postponing 1.0.0 owing to the de-facto semantics of that release number - though we may release 1.0.0 fairly soon) before the end of this quarter.
Please see also the Q1 2018 Roadmap post-mortem.
Please see also the draft Q2 2018 Roadmap.
The core features planned (subject to change) are:
Tyler Jackson has been added as a maintainer (Monax) since we last spoke
Silas Davis and Casey Kuhlman are active maintainers
Sean Young (Monax) will be joining as will Sean Blucker (TCS) - but first need to get up to speed
In terms of contributors we have commits from:
All of the above have been active on chat and are potential maintainers for Burrow. Monax also has a new full-time employee with strong low-level database (implementation of) and cloud experience who will be heavily involved in Burrow.
Monax will be putting Burrow into production for its own product - a Legal Agreements Network - in Q2 and Q3. We expect this to drive a phases of significant hardening and improved operational support.
