There’s been a lot of speculation over what our big secret was, and what EE 2.0 would look like.
I’ve very proud to announce that ExpressionEngine is now built on CodeIgniter, and each is able to share resources with the other. You an ExpressionEngine developer? This represents an instant expansion of EE’s capabilities. Faster, easier, more modular code, with a huge number of libraries and functions. You a CodeIgniter user? How about instantly being able to drop ExpressionEngine on top of your codebase, and have fully accessed, fully shared information between each. Instant forums, instant wiki, instant EE - on your existing code… now. Its VERY exciting.
We’re still in development, but I wanted to take a moment to post some “official” screen captures of our new Control Panel. Now I want to make it very clear that this is a work in progress. While things are largely “in play”, its entirely possible that it will undergo so minor, or major, changes between now and release. Oh, and on the topic of release, we haven’t announced a date, and truthfully, I don’t know. We’re working our asses off, and we’ll get it out as soon as we possibly can.
I will write more about the development, and post more information when I find a bit of time.
