I've been really busy lately, so I haven't had time to work on Clay or many other projects. I did manage to get in a little work on Clay 2 this weekend, mostly in the installer. I've rewritten a lot of the configuration handling and cut out quite a bit of almost duplicate code (code that isn't exactly for the same purpose, but functions the same). Once I have the installer working, I'm going to finish Clay 1.3.0 and try to get it on the site.
Since Clay 2 is based on 1.3, instead of 1.1 like we have here, I have to make sure the upgrade path here is compatible with Clay 2. Clay 1.x officially ends with 1.3.x, so the current build of Clay is actually 1.4 (confusing, I know). What that likely means is, eventually, I'll upgrade this site to a pre-2.0 version, but it'll be from the 2.0 repo. That will likely be around 1.7, which is the first planned beta.
I've never managed Clay this way, but it is allowing me to make the next major version really different from the previous, so I'd say it's working. With the changes we have planned and only supporting the latest version of PHP, Clay 2 will be one of the most modern and cutting edge CMS' around.
