      @roger– Try now. We had an issue with the original commit to WordPress.org.

    About time someone came up with a framework like this. Should make my life easier and for an old guy I need that peaceful easy feeling! Good start. Look forward to growing with you. Have sent this to a developer way smarter about this than I am.

      @chechman– We are not committing to a date yet. We are just want to get Piklist to a nice stable state, and then we will roll out applications. Keep using RoloPress… that’s fine.

    Excited to see some movement and progress… What is the update on future updates and or development? perhaps a donate button on the site explaining please donate to speed up progress and help support video examples!

    1. Steve says:

      @nathan– We’re working hard on the next big update. Should be released this week or early next. We’re still thinking about a donate button, and support videos. Piklist is changing so quickly with new features, that we’re afraid support videos would be obsolete within weeks.
