    It's May now, a month which's beginning is packed with holidays in my country, with 2 of May being day of polish flag, and 3rd being day of our first constitution (and the second in the world!).

    I'm spending time off work on power-walking, covering as many as 14 kilomethers in single walk.

    Now onto Misago.

    The threads list turned out to be a beast. Desinging reddit-esque threads list with filters, moderation and subscription options, and then implementing it as React.js components is actually very tricky and time consuming job (and it revealed some flaws and mistakes in my understanding of flux pattern and its implementation in Misago).

    So I'm expecting to work on threads list to carry on well into May. And when its finally done, I'll be moving on to thread view and posting, which I'm expecting to be final challenging part in my work towards MVP. And when that's done, I'll be moving on to private threads, PostgreSQL-based forum search and updater from Misago 0.5...

    Which is when I'll hopefully be releasing 0.6 as alpha 1 on Pypi and updating those forums to run latest master. This will hopefully be taking place sometime in Q4 of 2016.

    And when that milestone is achieved, I'll be moving on to next phase, which will be fixing bugs and updating codebase to run with up to date Django (most likely 1.10) and Python 3.5k.

    And when that's done, hopefully Bootstrap 4 will be stablish enough for me to start work on final looks for Misago as well much needed JS and RWD cleanup.

    So yeah... we are still up for long haul here, but I'm strongly convinced that this is not a sprint but marathon, and the goal - delivery of modern, solid forum software exposing all the power of Django's to developers and engaging experience to end users - justifies taking is slow and carefully.

    Thanks for the update, this place is looking better every time I visit it. Finally got my new computer so hopefully will be able to contribute to this great project soon. :)

    I've just got "move" and "merge" moderation actions left before I'll be ticking threads list as complete for MVP. Then I'll be either moving to thread view and posting, or bumping python deps to latest current, as its blocker in ongoing work for Python 3.5k compatibility. Either way I'm getting closer.
