Picture the scene. I am sitting at my desk early morning, having just arrived, checking my email in my laptop. A colleague says 'Time for a cup of coffee?' 'Splendid idea', say I, 'Just let me shut down my laptop'.
As I was shutting down I noticed Windows 10 was installing some updates. That was the last time I saw the laptop working for over a week.
Now that the new web site is live I have been able to turn my attention fully back to product development. As a result, a few new versions of Ron's Editor (now at 2014.12.03.0808) have been released, and between them they contain many small requests from our valued customers. Some of the larger enhancements are still on the list, but it is good to clear the way for work on the new features.
The website has now undergone five major updates in its lifetime for various different reasons; some technical some emotional. In general there has always been some progression of functionality, or technology, but that may not always have been visible from the outside. Let's face it the entire look and feel of a web site can be changed with some template tweaks and some style sheeting.
As a first post on my new sites blog I thought it fitting to write a little about the progression of the site over the years and the reasons for choices along the way.
