Project Status

AnyBlok is expected to be stable. Some early partners are using it on production and are involved in the project development. We are aiming to make a stable release as soon as possible.

Users should take care to report bugs and missing features on an as-needed basis.

It should be expected that the development version may be required for proper implementation of recently repaired issues in between releases; the latest master is always available at
