January Community Update

February town hall, features-in-progress, and noteworthy happenings from the team this month

January Community Update
Not Christmas, just 2023 OKR planning at the Anytype office ;) 

๐ŸŽˆ Noteworthy Happenings

Release 0.30.0 Desktop / 0.20.0 iOS / 0.13.0 Android

We're extremely happy to have pushed out this latest cross-platform release, which merged 12 months of backend refactoring to all platforms.

With relations-as-object now implemented, we're looking forward to unlocking new features that take advantage of this modular product architecture, such as custom relation management and 'smart relations'.

Town hall

In our first town hall of 2023, our founders Anton & Zhanna shared our vision for Anytype's future, from a private knowledge management tool to a graph-based space builder.

We loved speaking with you and look forward to holding a series of thematic town halls, starting with our infra team, who will present our new sync infrastructure. Read on for more details!

๐Ÿ„ New Team Members:

Alex B., Android developer

In his own words: A bit about me โ€“ I have a passion for playing and composing music, beer, and souls-like games, so you can count on me to keep things organized with beer and some cool music stuff.

๐ŸŒŠ What we're working on:

Infra: Gearing up to release first internal versions of our new sync infra! Our team can't wait to get our hands on this and start testing.

Product: Features are already done for 0.31.0. Major features-in-progreess include: collections, import improvements, and a new onboarding experience. See our Roadmap here.
