Open Beta? New Features? Keep Your Eye on the LBRY Roadmap
Jeremy Kauffman • Oct 17 2016
LBRY is working hard to improve our communication with the public. While the vast majority of our time is put into building LBRY, we want to remain transparent and do more to keep those interested informed. In the past couple months, we have:
- Published our Credit Policy and second quarterly report.
- Dramatically expanded our FAQ. See this post and this one for the latest additions.
- Announced new content every Thursday, with a broad review last week.
But LBRY is ground-breaking technology, so the real (and most asked) question remains – when will it be available to the public? Your wish is our command line. We present to you...
Our roadmap will keep you up-to-date on LBRY's development as we release new versions (every two weeks) on the way to a full public release. It contains:
- A history of previous releases and features.
- Immediate and forthcoming updates.
- Broader development goals.
The nature of pushing into new frontiers means we must to some extent chart the course as we go. It's a measure-twice-cut-once plan; we want each release to progress smoothly, with as little backtracking as possible.
Along the way, we are actively taking feedback from beta users and testers and incorporating it into the development, which will affect the timeline. So keep a close eye on it, because it will be fluid. Here are some big milestones coming up:
- Windows version of the LBRY app to be released next week
- Publisher channels in November
- A technical white paper by February
Check out the roadmap for more details and upcoming developments.
