After several months of development, the Orchard team is proud to deliver the first important release of the product. It's still an early version, namely number 0.5, though is now stable enough in terms of API and core functionalities to start relying on it to create modules, and more ...
You can get it on Codeplex, where the code is hosted and which is our main code source repository, so you can see exactly what is done and when.
I have been on the team for almost 4 months, and I'm just very excited by the shape of it, and where it is going. There are still a lot of bugs, and you can't do much with this release as a end user. Though the target with that one is the developer, so that we can rely on a great set of community module early, and we get feedback from the .NET community.
There are already some web sites and blogs running on Orchard, and people are very happy with the switch so far. Now we will start another round of development tasks to reach the Beta version around October. The next version is targeting the designers, with a first big task for us to completely rebuild the Theme engine.
The whole team is participating the design of all the modules, though I have been personaly involved in the development of the Azure management, the Search module, and also the Data Migration story, so if you have any remark or question on these modules, feel free to enter the discussion with me. We are also very active on the Forums here and here.
