Liftype is absolutely the best content providing system I have used.  The 
API that you have available is giving me the ability to integrate an 
ASP.NET registration and user management application using C#.

Do be rather frank, you are releasing updates in too short of intervals. 
I understand you all have great and new features and capabilities you want 
to make available right away.  This, in many aspects is benificial to your 
status in the blogging and CMS world.

However, it is also a downfall.  Your platform is already at a stage that 
can be used in a production environment, and exceeds any other content 
system I have experienced.

I understand you, as developers, are excited about releasing updates with 
perfected blocks of code, and new features.  However, just as this is 
gaining great interest in Lifetype, the interest is moving behind in 
usability with the constant release of primary and minor versions.

In one other aspect, who wants to use a system that can not be supported 
more than a few minor released versions.

I am developing a platform integrating mono with C#, along with ASP, using 
your API.  Your applications is already at a point of global usability, 
but others like myself are afraid of developing blogging platforms with 
the constant update you releases.

At an early stage of development, frequent updates are reasonable.  I 
believe your developers are at a point at which you should focuse on 
support of an amazing product version already available, and inforce a 
reasonable deployment of updates at a pre set minimum amount of months. 
6 Months, 9 months is not a long time with other project standards.

What your user base wants is support, security updates, and improvement 
updates, now that, in my opinion, you have overpassed any other comparible 
CMS platform.

I understand you do not have a large amount of developers; you may even 
think, as it is, very popular now, that you may gain even more interest 
with early minor version updates.  However, that is what is limiting 
production platforms to consider using your code.

Please, slow down just a bit.  It will creat a baseline application 
feature set, and its popularity, and the actuall use one can have of the 
systems in production that could, and would be provided: results in a 
truely impressive, global, popular platform - and response to your 
organization will, in my opinion improve even more with this alternative 
release cycle.

Thank You,

Andy Wright
