Developer Submission: Petrolhead 2017.0 in development

Hey all,

Petrolhead 2017.0, the first release based on the new open-source codebase, is currently in development. I’m here to announce some of the new changes currently in development, and what they mean for the average user.

Petrolhead 2017.0’s biggest change is the switch from a file-based architecture to one utilising Microsoft Azure and it’s Mobile Apps framework. The old file-based architecture was complicated, and was prone to collisions between multiple actions, resulting in crashes. The new system is more secure (although it requires you to log in with your Microsoft Account).

We are also working on a more innovative UI, and support for custom reminders. Unfortunately, the new codebase is still in early stages, so the UI is not yet implemented, meaning there aren’t any screenshots to show you as yet. Rest assured, we’re working on it.

If you’re that way inclined, you can contribute to Petrolhead here. We’re always looking for new developers, designers and testers!
