for those of you that are lucky and dont deal with software development (stay that way, is a lot healthier) this post might sound like a trivial update, but is actually not.
we need to upgrade our CakePHP framework from 2.x to 4.x in the coming months, Cake is basically the “heart” of eramba and affects anything you do on the application. this is necessary to make sure eramba uses the latest technology, otherwise we become another prehistoric grc solution that is impossible to maintain.
Its forecasted to take %100 of our development manpower (sounds like a lot right? it isn’t) for three full months. during that time we wont be able to make any new feature, just (hopefully) small bug fixes. our guess is we’ll start in May 2020 and finish during the summer. anyway it doesnt look like we’ll be able to go anywhere for holidays at least here in europe.
Good news is after this eramba should work better, probably faster too. We’ll be able to focus on workflows and other features we would like to do this year. The bad news is we never did this before so we are not entirely sure how to do it or release it to thousands of people
