I am sorry to report that we have not made much progress on Kompoz 3.0 during the last 6 months. I can blame it on COVID-19, but that would only be a small part of the story. Truthfully, I've just been preoccupied with other ventures. I started a non-profit business to honor a very close friend who I lost last May, and I also started a deep-dive into making telescopes (so random). During that time, though, I've been thinking a lot about Kompoz 3, and I am ready to get back to work. But I've decided to pivot on the direction. Initially I was working towards a complete re-write of the Kompoz platform -- from the database, to the middleware, all the way up to the user-interface. I was pretty close to completing that work but then hit a wall. The migration of existing projects to the new platform was turning out to be extremely difficult and fraught with bugs. Some data elements simply would not translate, and I think that would have lead to member frustration. So, I'm taking a more conservative approach. I've decided to keep the underlying database, and I'll focus on a new middleware and front-end. Much of what I have already demo'd (via the videos in this gallery) will still apply (new audio player, etc). I just means this will take a bit longer than expected. I'll post more regarding the timeline as I get into it. I hope everyone is well, safe, and happy. I am hopeful that 2021 will be a good year. I see it as the year to rebuild -- Kompoz, ourselves, this government (my country, specifically), and to end this pandemic.
