As you know the 6.0 was supposed to be just a minor upgrade but numbered
as such to supplement the forthcoming Scribo 1.0.
But things are now changing, Aida is getting a lot of very important and
far fetching new stuff, so that a version numbered as 6.0 will be deserved.
So, what is the core of that change of direction?
1. Introduction of web execution contexts as a step towards tree-like
control flow. These contexts give a scope to the "execution" of web
request and are the precondition for controlling this flow of execution,
2. Tree-like control flow is now the ultimate goal of 6.0 as well,
3. Translation support for text on the web apps, to allow the
multilingual text on the pages, besides multilingual content,
Points 1 and 4 are already done, while translation support is done
except the UI for translators.
Next week I have a plan to release the next beta with above results
already included and also tested on my production systems. This battle
testing is happening right now and so far I "survived" without much
glitches and no angry customers... :)
