The last release is dated May and I see that we have missed the target date of v1.1 (August 2013) and are getting close to also missing 1.1.1 (September 2013).

Having been a software developer in my time I understand how targets gte missed but with such a long silence without any progress reports I must admit that I am beginning to wonder if Behold will ever be beholded.

You once wrote that you like to be nudged about progress/deadlines - what is the status of the project, is still alive?

Thanks for asking. I'll have to blog something soon. Life has been very busy for me recently with a lot of personal and family stuff going on that has slowed me down (including building a fence). An article I wrote for an Australian genealogy magazine on genealogy software will be published next month, I'm giving a presentation as a 2nd keynote at a small genealogy seminar here in Winnipeg, I'll be presenting at RootsTech in February (Windows Phone for Genealogy), and I've submitted a paper on genealogy standards to FHISO.

If you want to see if I have a heartbeat, follow my Twitter account: louiskessler, where I post often of things I'm involved in on a semi-professional nature.

My release dates are to push me and I don't mind when those interested in Behold notice and tell me. That gives me more push. Behold is my lifetime goal, and I will see it through.


p.s. Version 1.1's presentation of information within an individual will be quite something. Internally in Behold, it took a long time to figure out how to do it, and there's lots of different things to test.
