Zesty News update

I’ve been very quiet about Zesty News the past few weeks. The reason for this is simple: I don’t like pitching vaporware. When I announced Zesty News at the end of April, I had a specific distinct bug list that I was going to tackle before release of the alpha, so I felt fine in announcing it. I don’t regret having done so, because I also wanted to put the name out there.

I’ve worked with some people who liked to emphasize that “plan is a verb”. You don’t make a plan and then stick to it rigidly, even as the world around you changes. In May, I made a couple of choices that have delayed the Zesty News software a bit. I’ll write more about that later.

I’m going to remain generally quiet about Zesty News at this point, until I ship the alpha.
