Introducing Discourse 1.0


(Jeff Atwood) #1

Today we are incrementing the version number of Discourse to 1.0.

We’ve been working on Discourse in public for about a year and a half now – since February 2013. Turns out that’s about how long it takes to herd an open source project from “hey, cool toy” to something that works for most online discussion communities.

Congratulations to everyone on board making this dream comes to fruition. It is v1.0, and I think it is time for me to launch my project(s) with Discourse now. Job well done :slight_smile:

Thanks! And I want to be crystal clear that every single Discourse install is a great thing for the web from my perspective, no matter where it is or who hosts it :wink:

:fireworks: Wohoooooo! :fireworks:

Being a small part of this has been a complete blast. You guys are really adept at running open source projects. I’ve learned so much from observing and sometimes participating in your transparent process.

There’s no doubt I’ve gotten a little bit addicted to Meta, which is a testament to the quality of your software and the level of discourse (yes I went there) it encourages.

Discourse is a big deal.


(Jeff Widman) #13

congrats guys! huge milestone


(Paul Apostolos) #14

Good work guys.

I’ve been singing the praises of Discourse for months now. I’ve grown so used to the interface that now when I visit other (non-Discourse) forums, it’s just painful.

Thanks for all the hard work and, personally, for the time you all spent helping me over the last several months.

Congrats another milestone :blush:


(Salman, Freelance Developer) #18

Bravo!

Have to admit you hit it out of the park again @codinghorror

You are probably going to go on a hiring spree soon? :slight_smile:
