Bellows

Dear Forge Community,

I hope this message finds you well. First, I would like to express my apologies for the recent pause in updates from the Bellows. The impending Forge upgrade has been a substantial focus of our efforts recently. However, I am delighted to inform you that the wait is almost at an end.

We anticipate the release of The Forge update in early December, or potentially sooner. Our target is to launch on the 30th of November, but please bear with us as there may be minor delays due to unforeseen technical challenges, a common aspect of web development.

The upcoming update will not only enhance existing features, and introduce the new features that were announced in previous posts, but it will also introduce a more intuitive, streamlined menu structure. Additionally, we are excited to enable reader comments on articles and to announce the launch of a Forge Newsletter in the new year.

I also have a special invitation for our talented authors. The transition from JPME Continuum Version 1.0 to Version 2.0 necessitated a reclassification of our article backlog to better align with the new structure. This process, however, revealed some gaps in content, particularly where the continuum has introduced new segments such as Character.

I encourage our writers to explore and contribute to this segment, focusing on the Character Doctrine and the learning aims outlined in JPME Continuum Version 2.0. While publication cannot be guaranteed, submissions related to this topic will be of particular interest over the next few months.

Thank you for your continued support and engagement with The Forge. We are eagerly looking forward to the improvements this update will bring and to the valuable contributions from our community.

Best regards,

Mike Richards
Production Manager
The Forge Team
