I just wanted to take a minute away from coding and post here just to maintain transparency and keep everyone updated. I’m currently working on the launcher for all systems to handle a few
tasks. One of which being upgrading from a previous install that way it’s not such a hassle or confusing for anyone. Right now it can control starting and stopping Neos, and a button to open up your wallet
(some people were confused as to how to access it). This will be for all supported systems (Windows, Linux, osX) and will take away any UAC issues previously found with our latest approach to control on Windows systems through services. I also feel this will make it much easier for osX users as well. I’m really trying to push Neos into a more
user-friendly place to help with growth and use. Once that’s done I’m working on a version-independent compile of php for osX so that any future releases of osX won’t interfere with Neos as we’ve just seen with
the latest Apple updates. Once this is complete, the auth work continues and any updates moving forward you’ll be able to handle from within your wallet with just a click. Adding to that, once auth has been completed (including necessary php core changes), it will be likely the last download you’ll ever have to handle yourself with Neos again.
As I’ve said, the goal is to make it simple here for everyone and as smooth as possible. If anyone has any questions or requests, by all means don’t hesitate. Thanks a lot for your continued support I really appreciate it.
