Anahita Demo Will be Updated to The 0.9.4 Release

Update: Demo is now using fresh code!

In the next few days we will be updating the Anahita demo website with new version 0.9.4 code. We are quite excited since the new code base has been rewritten from ground up based on the Nodes+Graphs+Stories architecture and Domain Driven Design. We can’t wait to show it to all the people on the demo website.

There will be bugs and broken features. We will be working round the clock to resolve those issues until the Anahita 0.9.4 is nice and stable. Your patience is highly appreciated!
