The Latest developments include a new feature to be called the "Sandbox" wherein models and interfaces shall be explored that will enable users to edit and add different database objects.
This will add an element of personal editorial freedom to the user, albeit that some control will be exercised by a moderator, before being approved for publication. This is not to say that all the actions taking place in the "Sandbox" will be strictly controlled by the moderators as the main purpose of the feature is to encourage the users to pursue a certain degree of creativity and expression of personal preferences while researching their objects.
We are updating you on the progress thus far on the New Wings Palette Project. Despite the lack of news, due to a manpower shortage, the project is going forward. In late Autumn of 2010 we came to an agreement with programmer team to develop a engine for the new website. Also we came to an agreement with Glyph Design Studio to design new website appearance.
We anticipate a "DEMO" version of the new site will be premiered in Spring 2011, which will embody the kernel of the new system and a sample of the interface,where anyone can get familiar with the basic features of the new Portal. The launch of the Definitive version of the site is projected to launch in Summer 2011.
