In the last few months, Invenzzia Group websites became a bit outdated, and the projects went into a more chaotic development flow. It was related to some private issues, but finally better days have come and I would like to announce the incoming Invenzzia Group reactivation and refreshment. Read more to see, what is going to change in the next month time.

I have just created an account on SlideShare.net, a place where you can post your presentations and slideshows. I will use it to post various presentations and learning materials about Invenzzia projects, so that you could follow them easily. Currently, you can watch there a tour on Open Power Template (watch on SlideShare). So stay tune and follow us on SlideShare!

A couple of minutes ago, we have finally run the new Invenzzia website with new layout, navigation and features, such as news/article commenting. We hope you'll enjoy it and we are waiting for your feedback and opinions. Please note that the links to the user manuals have been changed, as well as the download links. However, we keep the automated redirects.

Hi everyone, in the last few days, we had a lot of work around Invenzzia and its projects. In this entry I would like to inform, what currently is going on. We will talk about OPT 2, TypeFriendly, our new website and the activity in open source project trackers.

Our new wiki is available on-line now. I've been working for last few days to customize it and add the necessary extra functionality. However, there is still a lot to do. As you can notice, there must be added many technical templates, help pages and some navigation structure. I hope I'll manage to deal with it in the nearest days. The wiki is intended to keep community-driven materials on our open-source projects, as well as extra information on add-ons, such as framework ports. Feel free to share your solutions with everyone - you need only the discussion board account and some knowledge on MediaWiki syntax.

Today morning I've found on webresourcedepot.com a post written four days ago entitled "19 promising template engines". On the fifth position, I noticed the familiar logo of Open Power Template and a description that perfectly matched the 2.0.0-beta version. The link was redirecting to the Invenzzia website. I followed it and I was shocked - I forgot to update the main Invenzzia website! Invenzzia is no longer bilingual for some time, and here still lots of pages were empty, whereas the Polish text was very out-of-date. This was how we welcomed English readers for a couple of months :(. I decided not to wait till
Extreme eXtreme (argh, note the uppercased letter - JJ) will finish the new website and to update all the information as soon as possible. And here it is!

Recently we found that developing Invenzzia projects in bilingual way was a big mistake. As you can probably see, the result is that for example OPL is now closed for programmers that do not live and work in Poland, even if it is a quite nice country with beautiful language. Since now, it is going to change. We understand that English language simply gives us more profits and we want to correct our mistakes. So, what changes are expected?

Unfortunately, the configuration of a version control system on our current server is not as simple as on Sourceforge.net. But now I found some time and ideas, how to make it work and finally... there it is, we have an SVN repository. It's available under the address http://svn.invenzzia.org/ - we still have to install a good browser. Today I'm going to upload the source code of the new OPL and TypeFriendly, a documentation generator almost ready to its first release. All the instructions, how to connect, will be published on the main site.

One month ago we had no time to prepare a good website for our group so Zyx made something temporary. Today I present a better and more complex solution. The website has been updated with texts and articles about our team. We've got still a lot to do with organization but our website and devblog are almost finished.

From time to time, I return to the library licensing issue. Undoubtedly, the right choice of a license is quite significant for the project success or failure. Simple, permissive licenses are very easy to follow and use, but in my opinion, they are quite dangerous for the project itself and can lead to some abuses. On the other hand, we have a GNU LGPL license, which has been used by Open Power Template so far. It provides the correct protection of the code, however the linking with non-GPL software is quite complex and produces many questions. Let's take a look: we write the libraries for all the website programmers and authors of complete scripts, whether they are open-source or not.

Welcome to the devblog of the new programming group Invenzzia. The reason that I formed them are my open-source projects which need a good organization and infrastructure. To begin with, the group will take care of my advanced template engine that exists for over three years so far - Open Power Template. It will become the first part of a bigger series "Open Power Libraries". Currently, we have already begun setting up everything and our website is run part by part. I'll do everything to make sure it won't last too long.
