A Year After Coding Began

We've passed a couple of noteworthy milestones this week which I thought I'd highlight.
June 18th marked one year since work began on Hotaru CMS. I was talking with Alan (shibuya) about whether this means Hotaru is one-year old, and we both agreed that it isn't - that would be a year after Hotaru was first released, not when coding started. Even still, I'm very happy that development hasn't slowed down one bit in the last 12 months.
In fact, June 23rd saw the 2,000th commit to our SVN repository on Assembla. Two thousand commits in a single year shows just how busy we've been. To make a comparison with other CMSs, Wordpress has made 15,000 commits, Elgg has made over 6,500, and Pligg has 2,023. While it's the content of each code revision that really matters, I do think this proves our dedication to the platform.
Currently, we are working away on Hotaru 1.4, laying the foundation for creating and managing multiple sites from a single Hotaru installation so there's plenty to look forward to and it's only been four months since our first public release!
