had a dream. She had a dream for Netscape Composer and the core editor behind it, and mostly because
of that dream, she suffered from a reorg and lost her team. Even if she
was right from A to Z, and the success of Nvu is here to prove it. She
knew from the beginning that the editor in Mozilla had the potential to
hit the market because she knows that market by heart, she understood
the potential of an XML+CSS-based layout engine in editing
environments, and she also knew the value of the people in her team,
able to push the product beyond its limits.
Today, I am very happy to
release Nvu 0.80, a major milestone, with experimental XHTML support, PHP and Comments
editing support, line numbers in the source view and a set of features
that slowly approaches what she had in mind. There's still a lot to do
and, to paraphrase french egg heads, there's a vast field of possible
improvements in front of us, but it starts looking like something we
discussed together a bit less than five years ago. Nvu's feature set is now frozen until 1.0, meaning no totally new feature will be added. We'll increase stability and speed until 1.0final.
People, this version 0.80 of
Nvu is dedicated to Beth Epperson aka
beppe, a real Sr Technical Manager with a vision.
