It is my absolute pleasure to announce the launch of the Petrolhead 2017.0 Preview! Since Petrolhead was open-sourced, we’ve been working day and night towards this moment. We’re ready to start a public preview of Petrolhead 2017.0 in all it’s glory!
The Petrolhead 2017.0 Preview program is similar to the Windows Insider program. We have no qualms whatsoever about releasing buggy snapshots, with unfinished UI, for this release. It is, therefore, a program for geeks and/or nutters who don’t care about crashes, hanges and glitches.
The first Preview release we’re launching is Petrolhead 2016.40.0. None of the features are totally complete, and I’m willing to consider changing any or all of the user interface. At this stage, it’s not really a problem. I’ve only locked in the overall layout of the home page, everything else is up for debate.
- Vehicle and expense editing isn’t implemented yet.
- This release is only available for Windows 10 for PC’s – the Mobile UI hasn’t been implemented.
- There are some issues on first launch. Creating a vehicle should solve most of them. We’re working to resolve them.
Versions for other device families and platforms will launch in due time.
New feature ideas are welcome, as always! For those who’d like to contribute, you can do so here.
