Hey all, we are about a week and half from doing our next release!
Man, its been a great month since then, right? Our traffic is thru the
roof, the site is getting better, uploads are up, but we can't stop
here! We should keep on our mission to make the largest collection of
public domain cliparts out there in the world!

So, checking out the roadmap right now, we are at: Release 2.1 Grow Community

We've completed:

* Import old site and test (michi + rejon + bassel)
* Move bugs to new launchpad tracker used for OCAL 2.0
* Update wiki with documentation about latest on website
** Remove references to ccHost and replace with Aiki
* Port over all [[Talk:New_version_development]] to proper pages
* Be able to delete files!
* have password recovery!

We have these features targeting for the release. Bassel, can you
comment on them?

** Add back Examples page and way to upload examples or links to
examples on the web to also show what we doing
** Add back a system for uploading bitmap or SVG and tag as a request
so that others can connect up
** Reconnect up remixes or showing connection between files
** Be able to unpublish uploaded files while they get reviewed, along
with notifying the admins of this, and giving 24 hours to either a
user to make their case or delete a file with
notification...automatically...that would be sweet!
** provide more ways for people to help out on the project (rejon)

Then, we have some admin tasks:

* Upgrade OCAL Wiki from 1.6.8 version to latest Mediawiki version.
[http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Upgrading Upgrading
