Dear Chevereto users,
Is about time to reinvigorate Chevereto, I took some time to build our new foundations and you waited patiently. I’m glad, thanks for your support. It’s payday!
Today I’m announcing a very bold road map that will unveil many great releases and important project updates for the years to come.
Chevereto V3.20: May 2021
Chevereto V3.20 (coqueto) culminates the project work within 2013-2021 and is the final version for Chevereto V3. It was about time to end V3 with a big release, to close this chapter of the project the best way possible.
This release features a massive user interface update, support for containers, improved performance and top reliability.
Coqueto improves in everything required to mature Chevereto V3 and it will keep getting security updates until November 2022 to match with PHP 7.4 eol.
Chevereto V4.0: September 2021
The release of Chevereto V4 (macanudo) will happen in September 2021 and it evolves right from coqueto. Chevereto V4 will require PHP 8.
Macanudo will feature extended social login support and user based API. This is a huge change as it makes the default user interface exactly that: A default, enabling your users to use your service from anywhere.
Chevereto V4 release cycle
All V4 releases will be named and will get released twice per year (March and September). Updates on the beta channel will keep being monthly released.
|Version||Release date||Licensing (one-time) Core/Network||Renewal (yearly) Core/Network||Core to Network upgrade|
|4.0 (macanudo)||2021-09||$49 / $149||$25 / $75||$100|
|4.1 (supremo)||2022-03||$59 / $159||$30 / $80||$100|
|4.2 (?)||2022-09||$59 / $159||$30 / $80||$100|
|4.3 (?)||2023-03||$69 / $169||$35 / $85||$100|
|4.4 (?)||2023-09||$69 / $169||$35 / $85||$100|
|4.5 (?)||2024-03||$79 / $179||$40 / $90||$100|
Chevereto V4 updates will be all about progressively improve on everything like a more robust and flexible search, tags, background processing and more.
I’m confirming at least 5 (five) revisions for this major version.
Chevereto V4 licensing
Chevereto V4 will be released under a renewable licensing.
Upgrade cost from previous licensing requires to purchase renewal (one year minimum) + one-time $15 upgrade fee. By upgrading you get a brand new V4 license and you also keep your existing V3 license. You will preserve all access to V3 software and its related services.
License purchases within September 2020 and September 2021 will get the upgrade fee for free. License purchases within March 2021 and September 2021 will get one year renewal for free.
Chevereto V4 licensing renewal & expiration
License renewal is required to grant access for a minimum one-year period to software updates and its support. License renewal for any given years can be purchased upfront if you are into running this in the feasible long term.
If the license isn’t renewed it will expire, meaning that it will lost the grant that enables access to new updates and support. Expired licenses will preserve the permission to use the software releases available during the time the license was active, but without any support.
Chevereto V4 licensing modification
Core License upgrade to Network license follows the formula:
$network_license_price – $core_license_price = $core_license_upgrade
The amount paid for unused renewals will be used as positive balance for the upgrade fee and/or Network renewal.
For example, if you purchase 4 years ahead of Core upgrades on Macanudo’s ($100 value) and by 2022 you want to upgrade to Network, those remaining Core servicing years (3) won’t be used so you will get those $75 off, meaning that the upgrade from Core to Network will be just $25 ($100 – $75).
