Sorry for the delay in responding. I just ran across this in my junk
folder.

We were able to meet and lots of good things came out of it.

On the design side we made great progress. The page editing interface
was completely revamped in the new template and some work was begun on
designing an asset manager (yes you heard that right). Many of the
other views in the prototype were brought into the new design as well.
If you are interested in the progress, please take a look at the
radiant-prototype project on GitHub:

On the development side, a lot of things were done that have brought
us much closer to the 0.7 release. Maybe Sean or Adam could post an
update on what was done. I know a bunch of bugs were squashed, tests
written, extensions brought up to speed, and things were generally
made a lot more solid, but Sean could give us more of the details.

I guess I've delayed long enough, so here's my report!

In the morning before I arrived, Adam W., Nathaniel T., and
Rick DeNatale worked on getting the dataset plugin up to speed to be
used with Radiant, and completed the integration shortly after I got
there.  (Once all the kinks were worked out, we saw a 50% decrease in
the amount of time to run the model specs. Yay!) Meanwhile, Clinton
Nixon and Brandan Lennox worked on converting existing extensions in the
core repository to be compatible with the recent REST refactoring.
Trent Albright contributed a number of bug fixes and integration specs.

Later on in the day, Nathaniel and Rick paired (tripled?) with me to
rewrite extension migrations, which now write to the schema_migrations
table instead of extension_meta.  Radiant::ExtensionMeta is officially
gone, and your extensions should be able to properly support timestamped
migration version numbers.  I also officially deprecated
Admin::AbstractModelController -- from now on you should use
Admin::ResourceController or write one from scratch.  Adam combed
through a bunch of spec code and removed dependencies on the ancient
test_helpers -- all of the fixtures are gone so you should write your
own or use the datasets (formerly scenarios). I finished the day by
working with Brandan to convert extensions over to dataset.

Overall it was very productive, and we got some more people involved in
the core development.  I'm very excited about the upcoming 0.7 release!

Sure, seems like it now!  Should we be worried about documentation and
extensions becoming obsolete?

Cheers,
Mohit.
