Last week we have made the alpha release of Anahita 0.9.4 available to the people and companies in the Anahita tribe of partners. This release did take a lot longer that we have estimated because this released wasn’t simply an overhaul of the previous release. We have rewritten the entire framework and platform from scratch based on a new design philosophy and that took us more than 400 hours of development hours.
We have also passed 3000 code commits to our repository (currently at revision 3077). That means over 1500 development hours since we have started coding together this project over a year ago. Anahita has gradually become the center piece and focus of our business as a commercial open source project that is enjoying a healthy organic growth.

We didn’t get the chance to make a blog announcement last week (only tweeted here and here). After releasing the code packages to our tribe members, we all immediately started testing, debugging, and reviewing our task lists and planning for the stable release date. I was simply too distracted and excited to focus on writing a blog announcement.
