A few months ago our President, Pete Schmied, , had an idea: “Hey, what if we move to an 8 week development cycle and instead of naming our releases with a sequence of numbers and letters, let’s come up with something that’s more memorable for our customers.” Great idea, we said, but what should the name be? So he put out a vote on our intranet and a constellation theme won.

Now, every eight weeks, we’ll package major new Appspace functionality into a single release. Each one will be named after constellations – a nod to the “space” in Appspace. Because like the stars, planets, and galaxies, our platform has limitless possibilities. The first one is named Andromeda and will be out June 10th.

This new timing means we can dedicate more attention to each release, making sure it meets the highest standards and functionality.

With Andromeda (and all future releases) you can expect:

Here’s your sneak peek at the planned release schedule for the rest of 2023:

But don’t worry, we still will be handling minor release related items and bug fixes when needed. We’re looking forward to getting you up to speed with Andromeda, and the future releases to follow.

Ready, set, launch.
