Of what the heck the deal is with these delays and where is gridstack 1?

[delays] Where is gridstack v. 1.0?

I missed the first deadline; I missed the second. gridstack.js version 1 is not out yet. Sorry. Instead of delving deep into a sea of excuses, I will leave it at that: sorry for missing my deadline. I’m working as quickly as possible now to push out fix after fix and each feature update. Regardless of these delays, version 1 is still coming.

In the meantime…

In the meantime, every issue report and every PR is helpful. YOU can contribute to gridstack’s future. I’ll be more active on both github and this blog. Keep checking in for more updates!

Thank you to everyone for your support, your patience, and most importantly, your continued use of gridstack!

 

[update – May 14, 2018]

As progress continues, gridstack.js version 0.4.0 has been released. The link will lead you to information about the new features and bug fixes incorporated in the release. You should take a moment and read through the changes to ensure that you’ll have a successful upgrade to the new version. Though I have mentioned it in the link, I’ll reiterate: information on the triaged backlog and plans for gridstack.js version 1 will be provided in a follow-up post. Delays will cease. I am excited about the upcoming capabilities of gridstack.js and know you’ll be able to build out enticing new dashboards. Follow me on Twitter or on this blog to stay in-the-loop.

  • Is there _any_ help you can use from your community?
    If there are things other people can do, we’d be happy to help out with the nitty and gritty.

    • Hey there! As gridstack is open source, I’d encourage everyone to submit fixes and features via PRs! We’re working hard to resolve open PRs and make the PR/issue submission experience more consistent.

      • Hi, I’m not talking about general PR’s and fixes. I’m specifically talking about PR’s / Bugs which are slated for the 1.0 release.I checked the repo, but couldn’t find tags related to this version.

        Since it’s in our interest to have this version released as soon as possible, we’re happy to assist to make it happen 🙂

        • if you look at the develop branch, gridstack.js is listed as 1.0.0-dev but it’s unclear to me if the PR we’ve created and accepted are more a 0.3.1 bug fix release (god knows we need that) or whatever upcoming 1.0 feature will add, which I haven’t seen a branch for…

  • Hi,
    We have a dashboard based on Gridstack, & we are really keen on the ‘responsive grid’.Is the v1.0.0-dev stable enough for us to do early testing.

    • Hey Chifer! It’s not yet, but it hopefully will be before long. Progress came to an abrupt halt, but it’s coming back. I’ll keep you posted.

    • Hey Joe! Happy 2018, to you, too! There will be one 0.x release later this week, then we’ll get to working diligently on 1.0 again. I’ll post here more frequently moving forward – scout’s honor.

    • Hey Jhon – Great question. I haven’t decided for sure, given that we’re running so late, but there most likely *will* be a testing version before long that you’ll be able to use. I’ll try to get an “alpha” out via Slack as quickly as I can, but may not release a beta until it’s more stable.
