Using Open Source in a time of crisis
I am guessing noone has avoided noticing the financial crisis in the news, going through the world like a wave through an arena crowd. Can’t really say we have noticed it on our end though, this month will be a record in visitors for the TinyMCE website, as well as a monster amount of bandwidth being pushed out since we moved examples from the Wiki website to the TinyMCE website.
We certainly do not feel like we will be affected much by the financial crisis, on the contrary, perhaps the IT budgets are more slimmed and that makes companies look for Open Source alternatives, and finding that some of these projects are more structured, more tested and more stable than their commercial or home made version.
Currently we are busy doing major work on the MCFileManager and MCImageManager, planing to release 3.1 final during next week, with major behind the scenes rework of the graphical user interface, as well a few new features. We are also working on a secret new Open Source project we just came up with (stay tuned for that).
We will see what the future holds.
