Diaspora Developers: We Need YOU!
Earlier today, the Diaspora project made their latest stable release, 0.0.2.0. A lot has happened in the last few months since we moved over to a community-controlled system, and the project is slowly but steadily continuing to grow and evolve.
A lot of the work being done right now is primarily what a user could refer to as "under-the-hood stuff". Many of the changes aren't immediately visible things, but are fixes to long-standing issues that Diaspora has had. This is all made possible by our dedicated community, which is slowly but surely growing. That being said, there's still much to be done before we can focus on bringing in awesome new features. I saw this funny bug report, and Jason Robinson threw up this graphic to better illustrate the current state of contributions. In a way, they're both right, we need help to get our code better up to scratch.
If you're interested in joining our community devs to help improve the state of Diaspora, we have a great guide on getting started. We're always in need of extra helping hands, so feel free to dive in!
