Summary: The last month has been a big one for Funkwhale development. Let's dig into it ⛏
This was a huge month for the Funkwhale project. We made headway in some important projects and even released two bugfix versions! Let's take a look at some of what's been going on in more detail.
## Development and funding updates
A little while ago we mentioned that we had negotiated a change to our funding with NLNet. We decided that adding features before improving the infrastructure wasn't a good idea. With that in mind, we've allocated our funding to the following projects:
- Create a design system
- Create a repository of reusable Vue components
- Migrate to Typescript
- Refactor the embedded player
- Migrate the Frontend to Vue 3
- Create a Typescript client library
- Update the outdated `requests-http-signature` library
- Update the administrator documentation
- Add multi-language support to the documentation
- Create a Python client library
- Rework the Docker deployment architecture
The exciting news is that some of this work is already done and more is in progress!
- We've already made a lot of progress with the Vue 3 and Typescript migration thanks to [Kasper](https://dev.funkwhale.audio/wvffle).
- [Sporiff](https://dev.funkwhale.audio/sporiff) is currently rewriting the documentation and the admin documentation is almost finished.
- [Georg](https://dev.funkwhale.audio/georgkrause) has taken care of the outdated requests-http-signature library and brought it in-house.
- [Georg](https://dev.funkwhale.audio/georgkrause) has also started work on multi-language docs support.
- [Mathieu](https://dev.funkwhale.audio/mjourdan) has been working hard on the new design system. We're aiming to bring more of it into our blog, website, and app as we go.
Phew! There is a lot happening behind the scenes. We hope these changes improve everyone's experience and make the project easier to work on.
We don't have a concrete timeline for 1.3 yet. The changes to the app are huge, so we'll need to do a lot of testing. We expect a lot of bugfix releases immediately following the release! 🐛
## Funkwhale in the news
[NKCproductions](https://twitter.com/NKCproductions) recently wrote [an interesting article about the Funkwhale project](https://ins-rt.net/text/sounds-from-the-fediverse-an-introduction-to-funkwhale-a-decentralised-community-audio-platform). The article goes into some details about the Funkwhale project, its history, its approach, and the challenges it faces. Check it out!
