development roadmap for filofant
1) Further Developments
a) Conventional (CGI) Interface
a) Bug fixes (1.0.x)
ad 1a) Further development of the CGI Interface
Beside of the bugfixing, I am planning a further development and functional enhancement of the CGI interface of filofant. As a part of this plans there are (at the moment) the following functions waiting for implementation:
ad 1b) Development of a SOAP/WebServices interfaces for the filofant
In the beginnning, there will be a SOAP/WebServices interface for the search engine to integrate the filofant into other appliacation. When fully blown, the interface should be a replacement of the current CGIs with a new UI built eg. in PHP, which depends on the delivered WebService interface. Together with this step, the filofant can be used as application tier of a 3-tier application.
ad 2a) Bugfixes
Bugfix releases will be done on demand. This releases will be announced at the filofant-announce mailinglist, to wich you can register at sourceforge.net.
ad 2b) Functional releases
When adding new functions to the filofant, there will be functional releases within a version. This releases may include major changes in the database structure, so check the CHANGES file before installing them.
ad 2c) Version
The next Version (2.0.0) will include the first release of the new SOAP interface of the filofant.
