Long time no heard from us? Come on, we're still moving!

It’s been a while since we last posted here. Obviously, we all have been pretty busy since th last time we released a Typo version. Spring came, then winter, and as Europe seems to be freezing as hell, some of us started to move again, one commit after another. I’m not sure how it started, but there’s something wonderful with open source projects: take a dormant project, and have just one commiter starting to push code regularly, and you’ll see other maintainers leaving their hibernation state.

Typo 6.1.0 is not out yet, as there is still some work to do, mostly bugs to squash and documentation to write, but we believed it was a good time to make a sign, and maybe put ourselves under pressure to be sure we release something good.

If you have some spare time and want to help us, here’s what you can do: pull Typo master from our git repository, install it locally or on your server (sorry, we’re still not Heroku compliant but we’re working on it), play with it, and report every bug you find. And if you really have time to help, you can even fix some of them and send us a pull request.

Oh, and if you ever happen to come here, you’ll see Typo next default theme running.

    Hi Mike,

    We’ve (I’ve) lost Typogarden because the renewal email was considered as junk by my antispam. Which, by the way, solves some problems as no one was maintaining these old themes anymore but me, and I didn’t have the time to maintain both Typo and Typogarden.

    A theme catalogue will come back under another form, for now, we’ve been working on a default theme that can easily be tweaked and used as a theme development framework.

    Typo is still actively maintained, I’d suggest you follow our Github account at https://github.com/fdv/typo. A release is planned very soon, but we still have a few mind bogging, randomly reproduced bugs to solve first.

    Your latest post is quite distant from the previous, and typogarden.org is for sale…

    What are your plans regarding the future of Typo? Is this project still alive and actively maintained?

    Fortunately, we have not lost the theme files which were hosted on my server. If you know which one you want, I can provide you with it.

    We’re working on the new theme catalogue, but this will take place after the next release.

    Best regards.
