Morfik 3.0 Beta Release

Dear Morfik Developers,

On behalf of the entire Morfik development team, I am very happy to share with you the exciting news that the Morfik 3 beta is now available. We are particularly excited as we have managed this ahead of the opening game of the Soccer World Cup. Now we can watch the games without feeling guilty!

For those of you who have been waiting for Morfik 3 and would like to get straight into the game, I will share a few thoughts that might help you get off to a good start and, at the same time, prepare you for some rough play that you might experience in the early stages of the beta period.

Morfik 3’s game plan is based on the same basic strategy as Morfik 2—to give you features that help you keep up with the requirements of modern web applications without making the process too complicated.

Introducing the Morfik Rewards Program

We are pleased to announce the Morfik Rewards Program, designed to harness and maximize the use of available resources within the community and foster a cooperative support culture among Morfik users by directly rewarding those who voluntarily share their valuable time and experience with their fellow developers.

All peer support activities within the Morfik community attract reward points that can be exchanged for a range of products, services, merchandise and priority support, or used for sponsoring the development of product features and Morfik packages of choice. In addition to Morfik reward points, active participants in peer support will receive reputation badges according to criteria designed to reflect the quality of their contribution, level of expertise and knowledge of Morfik products.

Morfik opens its discussion forums to the general public

With the upcoming release of Morfik 3.0, the updated documentation and the emergence of an enthusiastic core of experienced developers who are willing and able to provide peer support, we feel the time is right to open our forums to prospective Morfik developers as they download the trial version and investigate the suitability of the Morfik platform for their specific needs.

We believe the key factor in the long-term success of Morfik as an application development tool for use by professional developers is the quality of our support. A runaway support load, however, can easily overwhelm us and reduce the quality of the support below what we regard as acceptable.
