The Emerald Editor Project is pleased to announce that Derek Parnell has kindly accepted the role of Lead Architect.
Thank you Soulfish. This is a huge challenge and not just because it has to be done right, but it also has to be done in a timely manner, working with a distributed team. There is a lot of expectation for EE as shown by the comments posted in this forum. The CE product is well loved and appreciated, and to continue anything in the same vein and also be differentiated, is bound to upset everyone in some way or another. I trust in the dynamics and good will of the people involved, that in spite of being just human, we will create a thing of wonder and envy.
I look forward to working with the team to produce the best text editor for our needs.
My first task will be to produce some high-level requirements upon which the EE will be tested and judged. A draft of these will be made available before January 6th, 2007 for comment and peer review.
