Photopost and vBGallery Future / No Future?
Reading lots of recent about Zach leaving vBGallery, and Michael taking over development, it leaves me wondering what's the future for both apps.
I moved away from vBGallery a year ago when it was obviously not being developed much and many customers started to jump ship when it looked like it wasn't going to change. Now it looks as though most of the predictions are coming true, but this new stage presents a problem with Photopost.
Michael has now taken over development of vBGallery, even though there's lots that still need to done to Photopost. Development has always been slow on Photopost, and now it looks like it's going to get a lot slower. Tons of feature requests have been ignored for years, photopost looks and feels out of date, and it lacks lots of web 2.0 features
So where do we stand? Is Michael the only developer of both software? Can we get an honest roadmap for both products?
For example, better SEO...will it ever happen? I think the simple answer is 'No', but that's very sad given the amount of SEO requests that have been made for years.
The documentation seems to have always been lacking. Errors that I pointed out two years ago on the installation page still haven't been fixed and then you spend a huge amount of time telling your customers how solve problems that could have been avoided by better documentation. It seems as though it's a shambles and you're just drowning in more work.
Is all this just falling on deaf ears because Scott doesn't seem to get involved much and Michael doesn't have the autonomy/budget/staff to solve the many issues that exist with both software?
