Let Your Voice Be Heard! Q1 Roadmap Round-up
2017 ended with a survey, the launch of our roadmap and a commitment to producing quarterly reports. We’re celebrating a wildly successful 2018. So today we continue the tradition with our 2019 Q1 Roadmap Round-up!
What exactly do we do with your feedback? A whole helluva lot!
Your 2018 requests resulted in our most ambitious year with the development of 4 major products.
- White label client and developer reports for the Hub
- A brilliant form builder plugin – say hellloo to Forminator
- Shipper (now in beta) – stupid-simple site migration for WordPress
- And *ahem* managed hosting (also in beta) – get three sites free with your membership
All this while polishing the style and design of your favorites and pushing some pretty huge upgrades like Smush 3.0 and the WPMU DEV Dashboard.
(TL;DR If you’re not a member… you should really just jump over and sign up now. 7-days free.)
What tricks do we have up our sleeve for Q1?
Say goodbye to the beta tags. We’re looking to bring everything to production. In terms of stability, uptime and overall awesomeness, our betas are firing on all cylinders. We’re just putting the finishing touches on our upgrade packages and we’ll be ready for the big leagues.
So here’s what we’ve got planned for the next few months.
Hosting 1.0 (Production Powers)
Over 1,000 sites are already running on our basic hosting container package. What’s missing? Simple upgrade options. Quarter one is all about making it easy to manage your hosting accounts.
And of course, if you haven’t already, it’s time to start taking advantage of the blazing speeds and dedicated resources, including memory and SSD storage. As a member you have three sites included with your membership
Be on the lookout, ‘cause we’ve got our announcement with all the bells and whistles planned and can’t wait for the official product launch. Coming soon!
Ultimate Branding 3.0 (Get it guuurl!)
Update: 02/19/2019 Ultimate Branding got a superhero upgrade. Welcome Branda 3.0 with refactored code, an all new UI/UX, new style templates, and bulk module controls.
Last quarter Ultimate Branding started an epic transformation to Branda. Talk about a rebranding :) A few days from now the transformation will be complete.
“Branda is everything you love about Ultimate Branding – but with a style upgrade and a leaner code base.
Update: 06/01/2020 Branda can now be downloaded for free from the WordPress plugin repository. Get Branda here.
Complete every site with a white-labeled WordPress dashboard, custom login screens, logos, and colors, simple coming soon, countdown, maintenance mode modules, and branded system emails.”
Fans of Ultimate Branding are going to love the new interface that integrates with the all-new dashboard hero hider. White label for white labeling… it’s white label inception.
Shipper 1.0 (The Great Migration)
Shipper is our brand new full-site migration tool for easily moving your site from host to host or from local to production. Install and run.
Moving your site shouldn’t be such a chore. Shipper uses WPMU DEV servers to do the heavy lifting.
Now that’s some good stuff. :)
